Easy Summer Mantel

Summer is here, so happy summer to all! At the beginning of the year I wrote a to do list of all the things  that I would like to accomplish before the end of 2013. But guess what?

Did you know that it takes 570 gallons of paint to cover the White house? I didn't We had a great time at LegoLand sitting, chatting and enjoying the beautiful weather. May 12th  Mother's Day. I did absolutely nothing, I received several phone calls from friends and family. My son gave me
