If you haven't been to South Carolina, we love our state tree, the Palmetto, a bit too much..we put it on EVERYTHING....cloth ing, cars, shoes, flags, purses, mailboxes, etc. Our malls have stores dedicated to selling anything with the tree on it. Well this year in my room at school I had a huge blank wall because I was tired of the cheesy posters. So what else would I put there? I couldn't afford the flag (if you've been in college you know..) so I improvised...



Its made up of scrapbook paper on plain white poster board, and sealed with modgepodge. It took about a day off and on and I love it! I get many requests from friends to make them one.

Here is its size in relation to my stuff (don't mind my junk Wink).


Thanks for looking!!

that is one of the prettiest palmettos i have seen around!

i am a snowbird (or damn yankee, since i stayed!) but living in SC since 1996.

PS: your "junk" gave me an idea that i should paint some of those cube shelfs that i have around.  we have like 3 sets or something... boring white and wood-colored.

I'M FROM SUMMERVILLE TOO! Where in S'ville are you from?? I'm from near Goose Creek...went to Stratford HS (boo) and am currently at Winthrop.

I always say y'all! haha but I don't have the accent...I haven't been to the local boards in a while but I could be in both of those cause I live in Summerville (near Charleston) go to school In Rock Hill which is about 20 min from Charlotte.

hahaha see! all you have to do is know someone from here or have visited...they are everywhere!

And thanks for the comments ya'll!
