Here is our mantel. I couldn't find my patriotic decorations and stuff so I quickly painted this patriotic style flag on a canvas and placed it on our mantel.
I then looked at the rest of my mantel and realized, what can be more patriotic than the pictures I already have on our mantel? These men gave their time and sacrifice to fight for the freedoms that we so enjoy in this grand country of ours.

Happy 4th of July!
