Happy Giveaway Day

Here it is...this is what I have to offer...


I can't decide if this more "Viva la France" or "Fourth of July".

I've had that red, white and blue floral fabric for a while. I love it but I just couldn't think of what to make with it. I know bunting is so last year but I really like the simplicity of it and how it shows off the fabrics. And I'm really into red, white and blue lately.

I think the flags would work well as some July 4th decoration or as kid's room or kitchen wall decor. The bunting is about 41 inches long with 10 inches of trim at each end for tying.

Just a few notes about the giveaway:

  • Leave a comment by end of day (midnight eastern daylight savings time) Sunday, May 31.
  • I will choose a random person from all comments to this post.
  • I'll announce the winner on Monday, June 1.
  • I'm sorry but I can not ship internationally.
Thank you all so much for visiting my blog. Have a happy giveaway day!
