A few years ago, while visiting around the harbour, quay area of Poole (south coast in beautiful Dorset), I wandered into a gift shop and found some very Cath Kidston style bunting in plastic. Although I've used it a couple of times to decorate a gazebo, I'm aware that it sits in a draw unseen for most of the year. Conscious that we should always enjoy things now rather than leaving them for later (because what if later doesn't come), I dug it out and strung it up along the fence.
Over the winter I had also made lots of crochet triangles and so, I strung them all together on a chain stitch chain, and hung them on the opposite fence. I figured even if it rained they would soon dry.
Now my garden looks bright and colourful, just like a village fete without the white elephant and tombola
