Bunting

I found this whimsical cloth, sort of Madeleine fashionista, and I loved it.
I love the slightly off white with the pastels, the pink with the gray, and of course the images.
Many Marches ago, on a trip to Paris, my spouse and I became engaged.
This little bunting commemorates the event.

A yard of cloth was more than enough to make a bunting or a garland.
I cut out the images, arranged them to my liking, and glued the cloth to the jute twine with quick drying tacky glue.
When the glue dried, I attached some ribbons to the end,
tucked the long strings into books, and hung it in our Mad Hatter Library that my spouse painted.

  1. I love it too. I once was a nanny for a little girl that her bedroom was like this . It was so cue. She was a baby but it worked well.
