Actually so did my grandmother, I remember (and now have) her 1976 Holly Hobbie Calendar and a few other 'trinkets', I think I'll be making some cards out of this calendar some time soon - or maybe later in the year ;)
My new style of bunting is a 'Holly Hobbie & vintage floral'.
I think I have came up with some thing
Need another of this style? Just let me know as I have more in stock.
