Easter Mantel

Hi Everyone
Happy Monday
The color inspiration this year for
 our Easter Mantel
came from a sand dollar found on the beach
Very simple serene 
and pretty

the  little  baby 
glitter covered chick

And this wonderful white ceramic sand dollar
Have you ever heard of the story of the sand dollar 

The Story of the Sand Dollar

There's a lovely little story
that I would like to tell,
of the birth and death of Jesus,
found in this lowly shell.

If you examine closely,
you'll see that you find here,
three nail holes and one
made by a Romans spear.

On one side the Easter lily,
its center is the star,
that appeared unto the shepherds
and led them from afar.

The Christmas Poinsettia
etched on the other side,
reminds us of His birthday,
our happy Christmastide.

Now break the center open,
and here you will release,
the five white doves awaiting,
to spread Good Will and Peace.

This simple little symbol,
Christ left for you and me,
to help us spread His Gospel,
through all Eternity.

We have sand dollars all around the house and collect them on our beach walks
  they have an extra special meaning 
at Easter  
romantic saying for today
"If my eyes could see only thee it would be enough"
