A New Vintage Hanky Bunting

Happy Saturday, girls! Here's some pics of the new vintage hankie bunting that I made for Priscila. She chose these hankies in spring colors and I chose the embellishments. You really have to click to enlarge to see the details.

Priscila has it on her mantel with other Spring decor.
Guess what? I worked on painting the living room wall yesterday! I think I'll let Bobby put on the last coat of paint since he's offered several times. He does a much better job than I do and this has turned into:

*The Job That Wouldn't Get Done*

Staring- Holly the wimp...

I hate it and I want it to go away! ☺


I also worked on a spring collage just for me yesterday. Hopefully it will also get done and I can show it to you on Monday.


Have fun today, girls!

I loved seeing what was in your bag. There's something very personal about what you carry in your bag. That bunting is so beautiful. I love the color combination of purpe and yellow because that was one of my grandma's favorite combos. It looks so pretty on Priscila's mantle. Let Bobby get those walls done and then you can have the fun job of decorating! Have a super day! Twyla

Holly said...

Morning, Twyla! Hope you have fun treasure hunting with Lindsey today! ♥ I'm doing 10 things at once. I never get bored that way! ☺

Holly said...

Good morning, Diane! No, the bunting was the idea of a lady named Heather from the Sweet Six Online Art Retreat. I loved the idea so much that this is the third one I've made! ♥

Hi, Noelle! Glad you got to hang out with your mom today. My Christopher might be bringing his family to visit me soon but I'll probably only get a few days notice! Ack! So I'm trying to plan without getting my hopes up. (NOT easy.) ♥

Hi Holly, sorry I have been MIA, had some med appt. and four hours of dental work in one day! So just from sitting I was pooped for two days! Love the bunting! I so want to make one, but need to get caught up around here! If we ever se warm days I need to paint two rooms, rip up carpeting and do Noelles wedding things. Hum, I better eat some Hweaties real soon! LOL, Love,Lori

Holly said...

Hi, Lori!

Drs. and dentists wear me out- that's for sure. So stressful! Hope you have a relaxing day. ♥

Holly said...

Thanks for coming by, Patricia. I love visiting your blog! ♥

Holly said...

Hi, Deb! You and I have both been down at the same time. Hopefully we'll both get to perking again!

Hey Holly!
The Spring Hanky Bunting is beautiful...I love the way she draped it across the fireplace mantle! You sure don't carry much in your purse...my purse has so much junk in it....I probably need to go clean it out right now...it weighs a ton! LOL!
I can hardly wait to see your newly painted room....sounds like your on the home-stretch now....Have a great night!
Big Hug,
Queenie~
