I have recently had an interest in decorating with bees (here, and in this project) and now have a similar energy about the Fleur de Lis.
And, since I decided that the Fluer de Lis the Saints sport was the reason I'd root for them, I figured it fitting when they won. :)
So if you'll remember from this post about how I arrange a gallery ledge, I had a few picture frames that were empty. This was one of them. I thought I could try my hand at stenciling for the first time.
I bought a 3-pack of stencils, with one page dedicated to Fleur de Lis. I simply put the appropriate size stencil in the middle of the brown fabric, and dabbed some white acrylic paint on with a flat head stencil brush. AND, I let it dry.
Pop it back in, and prop up on the ledge. At least I have a little more "French" in my house now. I read up on Wikipedia, and found out that the Fleur de Lis is historically associated with French Monarchy.
Oh, and as a side comment, about adding more "French", I was considering adding some wreath/sprig/ crest thingies on the sides of my bee from the Ballard Inspired Bulletin Board I made last week. I found this bucket at HomeGoods this weekend, and the lightbulb went off. Pop over there and leave me a comment if you think I should or shouldn't.
Anyway, quick and easy for today. I got some great stuff at the thrift store this weekend, but you'll either have to check the Design-Aholic Facebook page, or come back tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day... :)
