CAN YOU STAND ANOTHER PATRIOTIC MANTEL?

I don’t know why I bother changing my mantel between Veterans Day and July 4th, but I’m back to the red, white, and  blue.  So…I’m sharing a red, white, and blue mantel for the second time within a month.  For Independence Day, I crammed a lot of patriotism onto the mantel.

I kept changing my mind as to a favorite part of this one. At first, I was all about the party hats. That cracked me up. By the end, I had to give my favorite vote to the Spirit of '76 stuff, especially the plate.

I love red, white, and blue!!

Laurie, I sure did think I left a comment here when you first posted this, but I don't see it. Is Blogger eating comments again???? LOL
