4th of July mantel

 Another mantel makeover!
My inspiration was the Campbell Soup tin that my sister-in-law gave me. Love it! Everything else I already had ~ found at thrift stores and yard sales.
But I did have my son Shawn pick me up a Pop Shoppe bottle. You know how much I love cool labeling. And yes, I bought that lone skate years ago. It's great for displaying framed photos and chalkboards.

And how much do you love that fireplace sign! I went to a real junky yard sale a while back and found a stack of beat-up, old signs that realtors add to House for Sale signs. I bought several for a quarter each. Wait till you see the others. So excited to have found the perfect place for this sign.

I really need to make a simple banner to string across the mirror ~ and make it double-sided with 4th of July fabric on one side and summer gingham on the other. You know me ~ it's all about doing double-duty! Hope your week is going well.

I'm linking up with these linky parties ~

Linda, do I see a fold-up ruler as a star? Love it... I have a thing for those rulers. Cool vignette!
