The Budget

I decided to visit our local antique shop the ChatterBox in Portage PA, with a $20 budget to update my patriotic mantel this year. Do you think I was able to stick to it?

So my total was $21.25, so I was just a little over.

Textured Vintage Blanket

This textured crochet blanket was the perfect pop of red, white, and blue I needed for this corner. I also added the husband’s Army jacket, since we are really going for a patriotic military theme.

Florals & Vintage Glass Jar

Bell $1.25

I love any excuse to sprinkle in some vintage bottles. I wanted to add a pop of green to balance off the red, white, and blue color scheme.

Then just used some floral sprays that had a hint of red to them. How cute is the hand painted bell?

I love a good DIY project, and helping people create warm and cozy spaces in their homes. So if your someone who is ok with me being a hot mess express, a legging wearing, top bun sporting, kind of girl, then let's be best friends! You can never have enough friends right? I am a natural born nurturer, who always leads with my heart. I have learned it is ok to say no sometimes! My advice to you, take chances, in the end, you will regret the chances you did not take.
