Back to Pinterest...I had seen a couple of different ideas that gave me ideas on using stuff I had on hand. Love when that happens! I had a canvas and red duck tape to make the focal point of the mantle. All I had to get was the blue star on the middle. Last Sunday, my niece Ava and I made Popsicle stick Flags that turned out so cute! We had such a fun time making them! I had several tin buckets in my garage, so I just added a little red, white and blue bling for a great Flag holder. A red painted mayonnaise jar with a ribbon makes a perfect non-breakable vase for the daisies! Everything else was from my own collection of decorations.

And the now best new addition! Mom and I were at an Estate sale a couple of weeks ago where most of the stuff was a little over priced, so when I spied this set, I figured it would be much more than I would be willing to spend, especially when I picked a piece over and it said "Pottery Barn." Much to my delight, they were labeled $1.00 for each piece, and just $2.00 for 4 napkins. Needless to say, they came home with me! Gotta love a bargain!

Let's hear it for The Red, White and Blue!
Ya'll come back!
