Look what she sent me....♥♥

Can you see the START OF SOMETHING BIG here ?
The sweetest bloggy friend in the world,
KATHY, sent this beautiful HEART BANNER
to me, along with the sweetest card and even sweeter words.
.......this banner is sooo cute, ya'll.
Red and white and black....be still, my heart.



 Kathy is so talented in sewing, among other things.

I just love her talent for picking interesting, fun, cheerful, adorable fabrics to make her creations even more awesome.
THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart, Kathy.
I love this adorable banner. AND, I had been wondering how to decorate my vintage mantel in the dining room.
Kathy, your banner arrived just in time to add all the cuteness in the world to my room.



I see absolutely NO REASON in the world that I can't keep my banner up as long as I want to...

It doesn't HAVE to just go up at Valentine's
Day......
 Thanks so much for this beautiful gift...
I treasure your friendship so very much. :))
I love you lots.......

OOO, and, by the way, Kathy has one or two of these adorable banners left in her ETSY SHOP....
they are so cute, they won't be there long. 
I a joining in the fun at:
TABLETOP TUESDAY
RUBY TUESDAY
YOUR COZY HOME PARTY
REDNESDAY WED.

Vee said...

Is that not just the sweetest thing?! I love that all the fabrics are complementary, but not matchy-matchy. Oh you are blessed! No, you never have to put that banner away unless you want to. It's really darling.

Sall's Country Life said...

I agree with NanaDiana it reminds me of Mary Engelbriet also (my all time favorite artist) Red Black and White so sweetly vibrant and cute!

That banner is just so YOU!
No reason at all that you can't keep it up as long as you like - it's gorgeous.

Jama said...

It's gorgeous!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Oh my! I do so love that banner, bj! I rushed right over and not a single one like yours was left! All pink, cute...but pink. Perhaps another time.
I have an idea...I'll get the pink one and you trade with me...BWWWAHAHAHAHAHA! :):)
I'm teasing, of course! It looks sweet. I have one I bought from Cherry Hill. Perhaps I will hang mine on the fire place..only not too close as it is paper.
You are decked out just perfect!
What a nice bloggy friend to send you that!

Summer Gypsy said...

Good Morning~

This banner is absolutely fabulous! Kathy is one talented lady.

So glad I found you today! The "Love Letter" post is so sweet. I collect old diaries and letters, and it's so neat to be able to hold heartfelt words from so long, long ago that meant so much to someone. I do have a few of my own:) They are tucked away to read and reread and, yes, tied with a ribbon!

Have a very blessed day!

P.S. I tapped the "Follow" button. I would love for you to visit my little spot in blogland!

Blondie's Journal said...

This is just darling, BJ! Kathy is a sweetie and wonderfully talented. It looks so cute with your other Valentine's Day decorations!

XO,
Jane

LV said...

Besides having all the talent, you are one of the luckiest ever. I think it is nice when you get a surprise like this from a special friend. Good for you.

PEA said...

Oh how absolutely gorgeous that banner is and it looks so beautiful draped across your mantle! Kathy does indeed do wonderful crafts, such talent!!! Of course you can leave it up as long as you want, I think it looks perfect there no matter what season it is:-) xoxo

Debbie said...

I think it's perfect and definitely says "BJ". I agree that you can leave it up as long as you want. For one thing, the colors are so very you. For another, when is LOVE out of season?

I rest my case.

I just saw that you have the new linky tools thing up. I just joined it myself so that I don't lose any favorite blog not on blogger. I'm clicking my blogger ones too because I just think it's a good idea. So... I'm stalking you twice now. Scared?

Rettabug said...

How PERFECT for your home, BJ...Kathy sure knows what you like!

She has inspired me to try doing up some of these myself.

Very, VERY cute idea!

Shannon @ COZY HOME SCENES said...

You're a great friend to get a great gift like that. These hearts are so colorful they would brighten anyone's day. Love your mantel with the embellishment too! Thanks for joining my party this week BJ!

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

Oh how cute! It makes me wish I could do anything crafty or "sewy"! It looks great on the mantel.

Patti said...

What a beautiful gift from a talented friend. The banner really looks nice on the mantle.

Your decorating is always so cheery!
