I happen to love, love reading The Lettered Cottage. If you haven't been there yet, you need to go. Really. Just wait till you finish reading this, then hop on over there.
A couple of months ago, I was reading her posts about mantle decor for changing seasons, and I fell in love with her summer design. I really, really wanted a flag like hers.
So I tried making one. Mine definitely doesn't look as refined as hers does, but I think it will do the trick. Since The Big Move is coming up, I haven't hung it in my current house, and I'm hoping that there will be a good spot for it in the new one.
(On a side note: today we got word from the bank that there is another offer on the house that we are trying to get. We have been negotiating with the bank for over a month now, and almost two weeks ago accepted THEIR offer. They, however, had apparently not accepted their OWN offer. Does that make sense? It does not make sense to me. That being said, they can accept anyone else's offer that they choose as long as they have not signed off on ours. Enter anxiety.)
So hopefully we will have a place to live someday.
In the meantime, I will have a cool flag in storage.
