Time to open the windows just a bit and gather up some favorite taffy pink and linen white favorites for our April Mantel.  While our trees and flowers are not in bloom yet as in some of the warmer states, we're opting for some lush faux florals and hand painted roses to brighten things up!    Lots of height on the mantel this month with the tall dreamy glass candleholders and wire shelf on one side, so we placed the ruffled lamp on a hatbox and covered it with vintage linens to disguise it on the other end.

The oval vintage tray with handpainted roses is lovely as the background and the hand embroidered vintage tea towels have the perfect shades of pink and some purple to pick up the colors in the teapot.
