Spring Mantel....Shells or Ships?

Spring is tiptoeing  slowly thru our little mountain cottage.

I decided to go with a white color scheme on our mantel this year.


This sailboat is a bookend....such a cutie!



My sweetheart and I grew up on the coast of South Florida.
 We tend to pick up shells,
 sailboats
 and pictures of coastal scenes
 when flea marketing.




 The oil painting of the woodpecker was painted by my sweetheart. 
He paints beautifully!
BTW, he built the mantel, too!



Fleur-de-lis vase..... clearance.... Michael's.


 My sweetheart painted this with soft oil pastels...the lambs love it!




An alabaster scale....flea find...10 dollars.



 I began this mantle composition by stacking pictures on top of one another....then worked my way out from the center....varying heights and textures.



There you have it....my Spring mantel. 
What do you think I should call it?


But wait!

 Before you go I need to ask your opinion.

I am trying to decide whether to use

 the ship above....



or the shells and plate?


Ship or shells? Which do you like the best?


Have an awesome week!

Blessings, Audrey
