...Of Birds & Banners


I have been wanting to make a doilie banner for quite a while, but I wasn't
really sure if I could commit a bunch of my vintage doilies to the project...
so, I gave it a test run...on my beach bird house!



Looks pretty cute...I'm sure Tweety, Heckle & Jeckle...and even Big Bird
would appreciate it!
But for me, the look was a bit boring...
the beachy bird house needed just a little something more.





Ah, yes.
A wee bitty HARVEST banner.
Now that's fally & festive!

{I should have filmed myself painting the letters on those tiny
triangles...what a sight! On second thought, it's better I didn't...
I think I said things that were not lovely and pure! :0 }

  15. That is the sweetest banner. I love banners and garland and have several around my house as well. I try not to get too obsessed and put them on everything but hey - lets just be honest - everything looks better with a banner on it! Have a wonderful day!

  23. How adorable!!! Actually, I thought this was a dollhouse because it is so amazing! You are one clever lady...which is why I mentioned you on my blog today. Yes, I tried making your glitter starfish. I begged people not to compare them to yours but somehow I think they will and tell me to give it up:)
