Prayer Flag Swap -- Incoming!

Earlier I wrote about our prayer flag swap, hosted by Joanne. What fun to have the finished flags arrive! Don't they look lovely in their banner form?


It was a treat to open the envelope and see flags from both friends I knew, like Joanne (left) and Kristen Robinson (right).



I also knew Jill Ongley (left) and Brittney Young (right).



But I didn't know the artist of this one -- I think it is Kate White or Louie Shellenberger. So that was extra fun!


My banner is bracketed by two flags of mine -- Nest and Love. It was interesting that all of us chose a word for the banner. I don't remember Joanne mentioning to do that but together it brings home all the lovely parts of life -- joy, grace, nest, home, tranquility and love. It couldn't get better than that!

Thanks to my friends old and new -- your work is a wonderful addition to my home!

So extra special to see this after viewing your pretty mini-canvases last week. The theme seems to be small but mighty.

Thanks for your lovely words of support, my dear.....I am realizing that "age" doesn't help my situation.....Hoping for easier times.....And glad to know you are in a good place these days.

Good morning Jeanie! Now I love this idea....I was sent a gorgeous pennant banner years ago from a gang of Canadian friends; we were like sisters. I still have the banner of friendship, though the Canadian bloggers are no longer present in Blogland. It is so special to engage in such projects and swap.

I think I'll make a little muslin pennant banner for my theatre!

Happy Sunday, Anita

So pretty! It looks great hanging on your mantel! And how cool that you all ended up using a word in your design even though that wasn't planned or encouraged!!!

How lovely! I can imagine looking at the banner is very soothing. I had not heard of prayer flags, so I'm glad to know about them.

What JOY is this banner... and what JOY each individual flag--you can feel the love pouring out of each one! Such fun to see all the different textures, techniques, colors, etc. I just love prayers flags and all the good feelings & intentions behind them. :o) Happy Day, Jeanie ((HUGS))

They are so pretty strung together like that. It enhances their appearance and meaning.

Lovely prayer flag selection and those special words do seem to fit them...extra special all strung together too!

I still have sand in my shoes and can't quite get all the way back from the beach it seems.

Happy October Jeanie...
