We have been anticipating this day for so long! Over 11 months ago, Where Roses Bloom was created. Since then we have dedicated countless hours to this crazy dream of ours- hundreds of stops at stores and flea markets to purchase vintage one-of-a-kind pieces, hundreds of hours of meetings & design, but most of all, countless hours of praying for this dream.
The day is finally here. We are so excited to tell you the news! Today is the day that our very first part of our big adventure starts- we’ve launched our Etsy store! We are so excited to list many of the items we’ve found along the way & hope that you’ll find something that suits your fancy!
Welcome, friends, we hope that you enjoy Where Roses Bloom as much as we do.
As the holidays have quickly started approaching, I’ve gone into a crafty state-of-mind. It’s all I can think about! Just the other day, I caught myself searching house after house for pinecones lying in yards for a project I’m currently working on. I can’t lie though, I absolutely love it.
One of the latest projects is a pennant banner that I worked on this weekend. It is a simplistic banner that I think is perfect for Thanksgiving! You’ll only need a few supplies for this project. I chose a burgundy color as my paint color because it reminds me of fall leaves & the feeling of warmth. I decided to use a deep blue yarn to complement the burgundy paint while also adding more color to the banner. Feel free to choose whatever colors you would like to make your banner coordinate with your party or home.
After gathering a few sacks of burlap from Goodwill, I cut them into triangles, with the longest side being approximately 10 inches.
After I had cut enough triangles to spell out “GIVE THANKS”, I grabbed my paintbrush and hand painted the lettering. (Be sure to paint your burlap on newspaper since your paint will soak through a majority of the holes in the burlap.) Allow the pennants to dry overnight.
After the pennants were dry, I used the point of my scissors to create two holes in each pennant- about an inch and a half in from both sides and an inch down from the top. And the final step– the stringing! I doubled the yarn to create a stronger line to string the pennants on & allowed a foot and a half on each side for hanging purposes.
I hope you enjoy making your banner & don’t forget to give thanks during this season. It sure is a great one, isn’t it?
I’m so excited about this weather! I know I’ve said it a million times already, but it just makes me giddy. It puts a huge smile on my face when I can leave the windows open at night and sleep soundly. I just love autumn. I love the changes that it brings- the weather, the trees and how the leaves from green to red, yellow, and orange- it all mesmerizes me.
I wanted to create a soundtrack to this beautiful season. I was so inspired by the mix of old and new leaves woven together in the tree branches on the streets and sidewalks. It really is breathtaking to see how much the landscapes changes during this season.
The playlist I created for fall is a lot like the leaves- a handful of some of my old favorites mixed in with some new artists that I’ve completely fallen in love with. I hope that you take the time to enjoy this playlist and share it with your friends. I think it’s the perfect soundtrack to a ride through the mountains.. windows down, of course!
