BEE Still My Heart!

Hello my friends,
Have you ever had a moment when you felt like the stars aligned and angels were singing because you found something that you knew was just perfect!
That's what happened to me and I'm so excited to share it with you!

But before I do I want to show you my wool beehive sampler that I just finished.  This girl is doing a happy dance to finally complete it!  I started it last year.  Then I put it up and forgot about it.  I pulled it out recently and got er done.  :)

I love working with wool and when I saw this pattern at a local quilt shop it was love at first sight.  You might say, I caught the 'buzz'!

If you visit my home during the month of May, bees will be buzzing both inside and out.  I recently shared my bee themed tablescape in Just BEEcause

So of course, my mantle had to have a bee theme as well.

Now, here's what I found that made my heart skip a beat.
A darling bee banner!  It was handmade by a local gal and it has the same rustic feel as my mantle.

I feel as if I am right inside their hive with all of that sweet honeycomb!

So cute that I had to take pictures of it at different angles.  (wink)
The burlap with black webbing goes just perfect with my burlap container with the bee motif.
Isn't it funny that something as simple as this banner can make me bee ever so happy?

This quilt topper I made last year reminds us of other things that we should bee, such as bee caring.

It also says, "Just Bee".  To me, that says to just be myself.

And one more look see of that cute banner.  :)  The iron scrollwork piece was a $2 thrift find.  It dressed things up just a bit.

Remember to always, "BEE HAPPY"

No wonder you are “buzzing” with excitement.
I’m all about themes and yours is just right.

Those stars truly did align for you, didn't they. Your little beehive sampler is beautiful, Jann. Sweet beehive also. Loving your sweet little bee banner. It fits perfectly with your bee mantelscape. Of course I noticed the gorgeous little hexagons everywhere. =) I do believe no-one whips up a beautiful and whimsical mantel quite like you, lovely lady.

I just love how you always come up with such neat vignettes. I wish I had your talent and energy!!! There are a lot of neat things around my house, but I can't seem to get it to come together like you do. Thanks for always sharing --- they provide me with the inspiration, and now just need the energy. Guess all of my energy goes into the foot feed of my sewing machine. Have a great weekend. Sally
