Pastel Stars and Stripes Banner

I dressed my rusty old bicycle up for Memorial Day with a pastel stars and stripes banner and  three baskets full of pink geraniums.

I love red, white,  and blue patriotic decor,    but I wanted some colors that are a little softer for my bicycle

I can't wait to share my pink banner with you later! 

Pink and Aqua go so well together don't you think!

H is still working on our new deck......he's almost done and my head is full of ideas for decorating it

My bicycle was pretty rusty when I bought it more than 10 years ago......

I don't know if it can get and!

I have a basket on each side of the back wheel filled with silk geraniums.      

I found my baskets at Hobby Lobby recently.

I tried my banner on the fireplace first.......

Then,    I hung it across my bicycle and liked it there a little better.

Get your copy of the banner here.........

And here's a link to my Pinterest board for this print.........

H put up part of the fence panels yesterday...........the deck is coming right along!

  4. The bike and the banner look perfect together. What a beautiful piece on your deck. Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday. Hope to see you at the party next week!

  6. Wow, that is beautiful! I have a piece of framed art I use for summer, which features a vintage bike and a basket of flowers. Your decor reminds me of that.

    I am visiting from Wordless Wednesday.
