SUMMER banner


I'm still keeping with the 
colors when adding some
summer cheer to my kitchen.

But the weather here is nothing
like's chilly & foggy
...and oh so depressing.

A little bit of sunshine inside
makes everything better!

I used everything from my
stash to make this banner.
I didn't purchase a thing!

Aren't those little wooden
lady bug
so cute!

I used tons of buttons and
paper flowers to jazz it up a bit.

I love the colored clothes pins, 
they could be a bit smaller but
I had these on hand.

The more I look at it, the more
I love it!

Now I have to find a home
for the banner in my kitchen...
that shouldn't be too hard!

Can you believe it?
As I type my husband is in the
den lighting the wood stove!!

Yes, it's that cold outside.
I guess it's a cozy night in for us!
