A SUMMER MANTEL…HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY EVERYONE….!!!!

To commemorate this wonderful day of the year for our Country….

……….I thought I would add a touch of Americana to kick off a summer mantel.

I began by placing a beautiful watercolor painted by my friend Martha Odins….

…..You can see her magnificent watercolors at Marthaodinswatercolors.com

I added the patriotic tins I used for my dinner party tablescape….

…..and my folk art “Uncle Sam Bunny”…along with the saluting “Uncle Sam” made from clay…

These cuties were purchased from my many craft show days in the past….

…..waking up at the crack of dawn….

……….to be the first ones there….with my BFF’s Linda and Ruthie…
