a quick little ribbon banner...



i know... i am late to decorate.

i leave my red white and blue up most of the month of July!

Chrislyn wrapped this cute red and white woven ribbon, (a gift itself) 

around a thank you gift that she gave me recently. 

i thought that it would make a really sweet little pennant banner.

i'm adding a few touches to the guest room, to welcome Jay home

on July 4th. 

the banner took all of ten minutes to assemble. i then filled  two bags

with pebbles to anchor a red, white and lavender blue banner, that i am

working on for the dining room!

 ( there are no nails allowed on the cottage wall)

here is a little sneak peek! 

 i harvested the culinary lavender, yesterday.

i can't wait to mix it with raw sugar...or... sprinkle 

some onto my raspberry - honey French bread toast on Friday!


i'm out of to the work!

enjoy this day!


  1. LAVENDER! YES! Always the appropriate flower to make us all feel like summer is here! HI LYNNE! Anita

  2. What a beautiful and simple little banner! I love it, thank you for the inspiration.

  3. That made a really sweet little banner. Can't wait to see more! xo Diana

  4. This is so cute! And I like your idea of filling the bags to weigh them down. As always, you are so creative. I know you must be so excited to have Jay home. Have a ball! :)


  5. YOU are so CLEVER!! Happy 4th coming up and I hope you celebrate for BOTH of us! We will be helping Amber and Mike move from the apartment to the 'forever house!'
