Le Bleu, Blanc, Rouge... "Day, Eee, Eeegrec"




The real things are totally out of my hillbilly budget of course,
 I am sure... 
but NOT beyond my imagination.

My new ten foot ceilings call for DRAMA in my living room...
I am SO MAKING ONE OF THESE!!!

Doesn't really reflect my royalist tendencies

 but come on, I can't resist!!!!
 
I'm thinking...

--gold fringe
--drop cloth - or perhaps a more satiny fabric
 like a formal flag... hmmm
--rit dye
--craft paint
--stencils
--coffee

say, maybe 3' by 5' 
or some proper flag proportion if there is such a thing.

Yeah, it's gonna be awesome.
I can see it now.

Perfect sit on your butt project for this freshly fallen snow and an exhausted, pregnant Momma. 
I will post the entire DIY as soon as I am done.

Dear Angela,
Not a bad combination; snow, high ten foot ceilings and being pregnant! You will no doubt come up with a solution and work it out with plenty of time on your hands. That's what winters are for!
Hugs to you and hope you stay well.
Mariette

Hi Ang,

Well this is a project that I certainly do not want to miss! Waiting at the tip of my chaise!

Go for it girl! Doing it will give you more energy! (does that make sense? not? yes?)
