I can't wrap my mind around the fact that fourth of July weekend is only a week away!
I'd like summer to slow down!
I made a few simple changes to my mantel in honor of Independence Day.
My living room is already decorated in blue and white with red accents,
as those are my favorite colors.
To the mantel, (that I already had my antique bottle collection on), I added some miniature flags,
some wooden letters spelling USA and a wooden Uncle Sam.
A red, white and blue fabric pennant garland hangs on the antique mirror.
The red, white and blue letters are from the cheap bin at Michael's Craft Store.
I sanded them a bit to make them look not so glossy and new.
I can't remember where I got my wooden Uncle Sam.
He's been around for quite some time.
My daddy was a Yankee Doodle Dandy, born on the fourth of July.
If he was still alive, this would have been his 95th birthday.
It's almost Friday!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a safe and BLESSED weekend!
