A mellow yellow kind of bunting

 Do you ever just need to create something?  I often have that urge to make something even if I have no idea what it might be.  Today was one of those days.  I knew I wanted to make a bunting but I needed to go to JoAnn's for fabric. What kind of fabric I wanted was unknown.  I walked around the bolts of fabric at least 4 times but nothing was jumping out at me.  And then I saw this.
 I thought I would be coming home with something pink, but this yellow rose fabric caught my eye and I knew it was perfect for my little project.  The name of it isFrench Country Roses.  Of course I would love it from just the name alone!  The yellow and aqua are so pretty together.  The fabric was on sale for $6.99 a yard, I only got half a yard and have plenty leftover for another project.
 I had some burlap leftover from a wedding I decorated in September.  I cut out a shape very roughly, attached the fabric, spaced them evenly on some yellow ribbon and then glued yellow silk roses from the Dollar Tree to the top of each pennant.  For not having any idea what I was going to make, I think this turned out imperfectly perfect!  Not bad and cost me next to nothing!
 I think it must be the prospect of spring being on its way that draws me to yellow...I recently bought a yellow purse and made yellow cupcakes.  The yellow reminds me of sun and warmth, 2 things that I am really looking forward to! 
Thank you to those of you who voted on my picture on Facebook...I won the contest and will be getting my free photo shoot soon!!  Can't wait to see how they turn out!

Oh that's just the perfect thing for a summer day! You know, I think yellow might finally be making a comeback. From the days of orange and yellow and avocado colored wallpaper and appliances, to today's beautiful buttery yellows, I'd have to say I prefer the today color scheme! LOVE your bunting and the burlap is a perfect touch!
Thanks so much for sharing with us today for the party!
