I am O-b-s-e-s-s-e-d with Bunting

Cathe Holden, Inspired Barn

I am hell bunt on draping bunting, garland, or pennants from every shelf and window frame I can get my grubby hands on. Wow, I am inspired by these lovely collage pennants. The wheels are spinning. Steve will be thrilled! He already complains there are tote bags hanging from every door knob. Let’s call them door bunting… but functional.

Look how cool this photo garland is.
