Patriotic Mantel

I really don’t know what happened first.

Maybe it all started with the purchase of this valance from Goodwill.

It could have been the box of fun flags and such~that I bought for $1 at a yard sale.

I could blame it on the Hydrangeas?!

I’m not above asking for something!!!  :)

Make me one! and she replied, just watch me!

It’s awesome in person!  I wish you could see it!

I really didn’t know how much I needed this, until it showed up on my front porch!

Thank you Shannon!!!!

I can’t show you how to make one,

but

Shannon can! (Click on the photo above for directions)

It’s beautiful and budget friendly:

Dollar Store Noodle

Old Jeans

various flowers, also handmade by Shannon!

    Debbie,
    I am LOVING your patriotic mantel — so festive and truly reflects the season. Unique use of the valance {smacking forehead and saying: why didn’t I think of that?} Your hydrangeas are ‘blue-tiful’! That wreath is the crowning glory. How thoughtful and generous of Shannon to send! I will check out your up coming linky party. Have to use my noodle and figure out what to make! :)
    Have a wonderful weekend, my friend.

    Your mantle looks fantastic with Shannon’s wreath and your touch. I would never have thought to put a little ruffled valance on the mantle top, but boy, do you have my wheels turning! I need to get to “noodling” so I can join the party.

    You will…forever be…queen of awesome mantels! You amaze me every time with what you come up with, and Shannon’s wreath is the icing on the cake! What a sweet thing to do…I think I need to practice me some “hinting” skills and see what shows up on my doorstep! 😉 lol

    My noodle is ready and waiting. Finally something done for a party, I’ve missed the last several I wanted to join. Don’t tell Shannon (HA!) but it’s a Fox Hollow knock off.

    Oh Debbie, I love it! My little red & white gingham heart loves your patriotic mantel. Before I read about the wreath, I was almost screaming, “What is she doing with Shannon’s wreath?” lol How sweet of her to make one for you!

    It looks great in you home with your other things. I love that you got it from a fellow blogger…now you will think of Shannon every time you look at the wreath.

    Debbie,
    I am so tickled to see something I made at your place… sort of a trip actually!
    You made my/your little pool noodle wreath right at home! Just don’t think it could not look any cuter.
    That is one fabulous~festive mantel you put together =)

    Hugs! Shan
