Playin with Stuff around my House!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I have been playing around with this side table in my diningroom using the burlap runner that I made.
I just pulled together some things that I all ready have around the house....

My current obsession is Picasa, as you can see.




Oh don't you just love when A GOOD OBSESSION takes over!? lol

your runner is so lovely, as usual...!

Love that runner- Are those zinc/tin trays down there? They're nice! Love the new header on your blog too! It's nice to get a different angle on your room- it looks so sweet.
My table is coming off to a bad start- but there's hope for tomorrow!! I can't find the paint I bought a gazillion years ago, the primer spray clogged.... Ugh... Cross your fingers!! :)

What a lovely setting on your side table! I sure wish I could have found that garage sale where that cabinet was again. She had some AWESOME things for sale!

I so heart your burlap table runner, Sissie! Picasa is loads of fun. It came in handy when I was posting photos for my Mosaic tutorials.

Enjoy the weekend!

Dorthe said...

Hi sweet,
What a wonderfull display, on you beautifull tablerunner, yes we soooo wants spring to come.Here it is raining today, I hope the sun shines on you dear friend.

Diane said...

Oh my, Sissie, this is so lovely. I've never even SEEN white burlap! Can you imagine this as curtains! With big rings holding it to a pretty, decorative, white rod! And your ruffles on the bottom. Burlap is hard on the hands, so scratchy. But the way you've done this you can hardly tell it's a coarse weave. It looks soft and feminine.

How pretty Sissie!

Happy Sunday my Lovely Friend,

Sherrie said...

I have been playing around with my photos as well and having too much fun. It is addictive. I loved how you used the empty plant pots in one of your photos. You will see how I use that idea latter this week. As always I stop by to get inspired if not a good laugh sometimes. Thank you for kind comment today as well. It is so nice to get out and visit everyone on a Sunday.
