Here's my mantel.
This is one of my very favorite things. It's a picture of my grandpa w/ his plane during WWII. He even signed it "Love, Eddie" in the bottom corner. How cool is that? He passed a few years ago and we all miss him, so it's fun to have at least a picture of him smiling at us.
I also have a wood flag that I picked up at JoAnn's in the unfinished wood section year's ago and a wood block that I stenciled "Land of the free, because of the brave".Here's a trio of birdhouses that I also bought @ JoAnn's and painted to look patriotic.
Happy Fourth! They have outlawed fireworks and outdoor grilling around here due to our drought, so please eat a hot dog for me and give and extra "Ooh and Ahh" when watching those "bombs bursting in air."
