Oh Say Can You See My Mantle? Give Away!

Finally getting some patriotic decorations out . . . this is my "mantle" which is actually just a strange rectangular opening in the wall of our living room.

 I was finally able to use these great letters and vintage crepe paper rolls that I bought from Jillian at Bella Rosa Antiques.  She is constantly getting new things in her online store so you should definitely check out her site!

The sheet music came from one of nine books I got on Ebay
This one is just full of patriotic songs . . . here are some of the others I got . . .
These are SO old, I don't have to 'age' them at all for projects!
See, complete with their own stains!
Now for the give away part . . .
I could never in a million years use all of this sheet music so I'd love to share it with one of you!  The winner will receive
- Ten pages from a hymnal (you choose the 
songs you want!)
- Five pages from a nursery rhyme song book
 (no musical score but most are illustrated!)
- Ten pages of miscellaneous sheet music

  17. I'm curious about your "opening". I think I have something similar, but yours seems nicer. Mine is like a window opening between the kitchen and the open floor plan of dining/living space. I never knew how to decorate it.

  21. Hi Lauren, vintage music sheets are great for crafts. This is a great giveaway. The packaging on the vintage crepe paper is really great. I wish packaging was still as pretty.
