~Garden Banner~

I needed something to fill a spot near our bench.
I love the way banners look in the house so,
 I thought I'd make one for outside.
It looks so whimsical next to the window.
We found this old door bell at a garage sale.
The rooster stepping stone gives
 the post some color.
Our sunflowers are still growing even through the heat of the summer.

I used some Rachel Ashwell material.
Our New Banner


  1. Darling!
    I never would have thought to put a banner in the garden.
    Nice job.

    Smiles :)

  2. Jody,I love your garden!!!:)))

  3. What a delightful garden...I would spend entire DAYS sitting there, amongst all the loveliness, Jody! Just returned from the last of my vacations for the year - eager to play catch up on all my blog reading. Happy Tuesday - Tanya

  4. Love your RA fabric banner... it looks so fun in the garden! I think I'm going to have to make one for next spring... unless I use snowman fabric. Those days are not far off for us I'm afraid. :)

  5. Hi Jody,

  8. I totally love garden whimsy. The banner, the old windows and mosiac rooster fill in the whimsy!

  9. Your garden is so delightful! LOVE it! The fabric you used to make the banner is pretty!

  10. Hi Jody,

    Love the shabby chic banner...looks great in the garden. I am a follower of your blog as well!

  11. Very cute. I love the view of the sunflowers framed through the window.

  12. So sweet - this vignette makes me want to sit a spell with a glass of iced tea.

  13. If I had a garden like this I don't think I would ever go inside...Everything is so cute and the banner just ties it all in. Would like to invite to come by and share sometime at http://www.onemoretimeevents.com/2012/08/features-6-share-it-one-more-time-6-and.html

  14. Oh I love your blog too! I"m drooling over the background vintage Paris illos as well. Thank you for your comment and for following Paris Through My Lens. I hope you will visit often. Now I'm off to your Etsy store!

  15. Hello,
    Thank you for visiting us and following Red Rose Alley. You have a lovely blog, and I noticed the Lake Tahoe post. I am very familiar with Lake Tahoe, as I am a California girl. While I was scrolling down, I noticed the bottle with the bird and the crown. That is gorgeous. I hope you visit us again soon... it's nice to meet new friends. Have a sweet day.
