I never should have titled my last post WINDOW WEEK. It should have been tittled WINDOW -when ever I get around to it. I have had technical difficulties with my hard drive. Help Paul!
So I am not going to show you the chalk boards today we will go for a patriotic theme.
I bought the flag at the dollar store. It was made in China, has the wrong number of stripes and is a square instead of a rectangle. But, when I wrapped it around a piece of cardboard cut to fit the window it looked okay. I also tea stained the flag before I put it in the window. This only works with cotton flags. Many flags are nylon which makes them very weather resistant but it will not take the tea well.
tea- $1 (got that from dollar store also)
stain (left over from another project) I also stained the window frame, still worried about lead paint.
I didn't make this idea up, I saw this in a local antique boutique for $120.00. I think they had a real vintage flag inside, but for $118.00 savings I will go for the knock off flag. Is that unpatriotic?
This is me on a good day. (How come good days never involve full body shots?) Most days I can be found in a holey pair of track pants covered in paint. And yes, I have been known to wear this out in public. I am secretly hoping to land myself on "What Not to Wear"
