Default Banner "Words" advice needed

Hey everyone, I need some stampers to brainstorm with me!

I'm going visiting back home next weekend, and am making a banner similar to THIS for my Mom. I'm hoping she'll hang it on her fireplace mantle, and I want it to say "welcome" as it's near the door where most everyone comes in when they visit her house. I also want it to just fit in with her decor, and not be holiday-specific or seasonal.


I also want to make one for my 80+ year old favorite aunt who we'll be visiting. I don't have a clue where she might be able to hang it, so I don't necessarily want to do "welcome" for her banner, plus I was wanting to make hers a little bit smaller. Any thoughts on other words I can use? I don't want hers to be seasonal or holiday-specific either, so something more generic for "every day" is what I'm aiming for. Any thoughts?

The banner was one I made when I was part of the Dirty Dozen, so if you don't have a Fan Club membership, you wouldn't be able to view it. Sorry... didn't think about that! Here's another one I made recently, but I plan for the ones I'm making now to be bigger than this.

My aunt always loved cooking and sewing, but her eyesight now is too bad for either, anymore. I thought about seeing if I had some good cooking-themed stamps, and I could just make a 5-piece banner with cooking images instead. My friend Bar made this one with a nautical theme, so maybe I'll go that direction?

Oh they're all lovely. I like the idea of personalizing it to her favourite things. All the words that Arlene provided are wonderful to. Love to see what you end up deciding on.

Carpe Diem
Blessings
Home Sweet Home (if you didn't want to stamp out "Sweet" letter-by-letter, you could put the entire word vertically on one pennant)

I made one that says "Thankful" but it is kind of fallish. But I like it as it reminds to be thankful of my blessings.

Combination sewing and cooking banner with SEW SWEET.

I love the nautical banner because that's my thing but the Spring banner is very happy to look at!

Beautiful banner!

How about the word Love, and then a heart to make 5 flags on the banner (since an odd number often looks better)?

Or, Family.
