More Burlap and Ruffle Love

Hi Bloggerettes!  I didn't go out of the house today.  Just stayed in and finished up some projects and did some house cleaning,(ugh!)
I finished up a pretty burlap runner made with a soft earthy green
burlap, added ruffles and an image from Graphics Fairy.

The deep pink plate in the photo is antique majolica.  The cream plate is a shell plate from HomeGoods and the green scalloped edged plate is also from Home Goods.

I have received some wonderful gifts this week that I'll be posting about later, so stayed tuned!


I'm linking to Graphics Fairy for Brag Mondays.

Adorable runner! Your new header looks great and I love the toile pillows!

Karen- The Graphics Fairy said...

It's lovely Sissie!! And your signature ruffled edges looks fabulous as always. I want to come to your beautiful home so you can teach me how to make ruffles like that! Thanks for linking this one up today!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love the runner! It looks so good with the dishes on there, too. Did you add new pillows to your couch in the header? I love those toile pillows, but didn't remember seeing them in your other picture.

Terri Smith said...

Sweet Sissie..I'd love just to follow you around for a day. Okay, so maybe two or three days. You could teach me how to make all those gorgeous ruffles. Hey..I'm lovein' the runner! Love "Graphics Fairy" too. I found the sweetest dove illustration the other day.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful piece!
Blessings, Joy and Monday Sunshine, Terri

Beautiful, Sissie, just reminds of of so long ago when it was in fashion.

Yes, we did go to WV to Harpers Ferry & Antietam. You can read about our gathering on my blog tonight.

We were finger clicking chicks with those cameras, lmty.

Have a wonderful week.

Oh girl, I've had my head in the computer (or dirt) for days & missed some Sissie posts. Your image transfers are so VERY COOL! Love that fork & knife. Are you using a photo or do you just copy the silver ware on your printer. I saw an article somewhere, sometime, about copying blue & white transfer ware plates then cutting them out & decoupaging onto furniture. It was cute. Love your finds from the weekend too, those wire trays are so great for the studio. The white wicker one is TDF! Good job girl! Lisa

I have been enjoying your blog for quite a few months now (actually, yours is one of my favorites!), so as a new blogger,I was thrilled to see that you have become one of my followers! Yeah! And you are correct: we do have lots in common!

Cindy said...

Hi Sissy,
What a gorgeous blog! Purely fabulous as are all your delightful creations! I'm in New Orleans...But, I assume you are from the south and I was wondering where you're located...I figured we may be "neighbors!" Awesome creativity and love, love, the runner!

This is a great image. I printed it off to use on something, but went a different direction. I still want to use it, so need to think up something else!
