The White Christmas Banner

Pin It Now!

I received a lot of emails asking to see my White Christmas banner up close and also asking if I made it. I wish I could take credit for it but it was made by "M" ~ Tales from an OC Cottage. She sent it to me last Christmas. I LOVE it!!!
Unfortunately she doesn't sell them for those of you that asked.
It's made from tulle ribbon which I've seen in the bridal section at Michaels and little tags. It's hard to tell but there is a little white glitter also on the tags.
I love the little cut-out detail on the bottom of each tag!
She sent me some more Christmas goodies this year which I'll share later this week.
The "snow" above was done on Picnik.

Hi Cindy,

What a fabulous banner "M" made, I love all of the detail and of course if "M" made it, it must have glitter!

I wanted to let you know how grateful I am that our paths crossed this year. I adore your amazing talent and for sharing a bounty of loveliness with us. Wishing you and your family a joyous and Merry Christmas!

Love and hugs,

Cindy~ I love your banner. After I
saw yours I got some tags and tulle
and stenciled the letters on and it
not as pretty as yours but I like
it. I didn't detail mine like yours
is.I did draw holly and berries on
mine. Your pic you did at the bottom with the snow is fantastic.
That's a really cool pic.

It's a pleasure to make pretties for someone who has added such prettiness to my world! And that banner would be nothing without the backdrop of your home to really set if off!

Merry Christmas to you & yours!

Oh that M..... she is such a delight.... your home is so filled with beauty...as always.....

I was so thrilled to see you in print...... what a match My Romantic Home and Romantic Home magazine...
You are a true romantic and help us all see romance in our corner of the world..

I liked the banner from a distance but up close, seeing the tulle and sparkles here and there, it is so much more romantic. The idea of tulle on white tags fascinates me. A look that would easily fit in with my romantic home in Florida. "M" did a fantastic job and lucky you, she made it just for you.
Blessings to you and your family this Christmas. May the New Year bring health, happiness and beautiful days ahead.

I follow your blog all the time. I saw the magazine at the grocery where I shop. I sort of fanned through the magazine, when I realized it was "you", I immediately knew what your secret was you were going to share with us.
I know how excited you are. Several years ago, the shop/home of a friend that I worked with was featured in the original Victoria magazine. My mom had received her copy first and she lived about 45 minutes away from the shop. She called me at work and told me about the article. I had to leave work right then and there--we were dying to see the article.
Again, Congrats. Well deserved. You have a great blog!
