Sunshine and bunting.

I went out in the sun, the snow and finally the dusk trying to get photographs of bunting. Anyone have some tips on the best way to get pictures that actually show the merry flags looking as lovely as they actually are and I will be one very grateful Pipany!





See my point? A very pretty picture which shows Dave's little writing room, the hens and, oh that's right, the bunting! The problem is there is no real detail. Still, it is pretty - I tried again...





and again...




and again...




The bunting comes in lovely summery colours - a mix of bright spots, red gingham and a little leafy green to provide a calming note, and to finish it off I included some beachy ticking (I do love ticking) as a contrast. I think the whole brings a touch of the festive; sort of reminds me of birthdays and Maydays and seaside breezes. We hang bunting in the house for celebrations and Lucy has some in a different colourway hanging in her bedroom too, but for the moment it is this one which I have named 'Bright & Breezy' which will be available on my website. It comes in lengths of approximately 2 metres (including ties) with 11 flags, but extra lengths can be ordered too.

Roll on summer!

I like it Pipany, esp the red gingham. The photos on the little house are fine.

If ever I need bunting - I know exactly who to call . .

Mmmmm - much cheerier than the Tibetan prayer flags that are flying (incongruously)in the cedars!

I have a trouble taking photos of bunting too (I hire it out for weddings rather than sell it) - the best photos I got recently were with it criss-crossing in the greenhouse.
I find bunting really useful-saves a fortune on balloons,

Really pretty. We have a big party coming up in the summer and I might use it if I can work out how to hang it round here! I love the ticking too.
