note to self...

First off I would like to apologize in advance to my kids for taking you to the doctor to get poked with a needle today. I really can't hardly stand watching. I will let you have those big suckers on the loopy sticks for sure.

Secondly, I can't get this image out of my mind. How easy would it be to recreate this vision, especially the garland.

Take colored round paper doilies and fold in half over ribbon or twine. Perhaps a red, white and blue one for the Fourth of July. Hmmm......

Speaking of garland/banners, check out this beautiful burlap banner my blogging friend Grace sells in her Etsy store. I bought her cute chalk chalkboard labels that I will be using in my laundry room re-do.
