Burlap Love!

Hi Bloggerettes!  It's time I tried making something different.  I love burlap and you can now get it in some yummy colors.  So, I decided to make a drapery panel from a "peachy pink" burlap.  Here is how it turned out.  What do you think?

It was a little hard to photograph due to the length.
It measures a wonderful 96" long and
52 wide.  I couldn't resist adding the

It's going to my etsy shop.

I hope you love it as much as I do.  I know, I'm bragging, but hey, a girl's gotta have confidence right?  You know what gives me
confidence?  Having all of you as my blogging friends!!!

Oh, and you know what?  I didn't notice when I did this post that it was my 200th!  Time for a giveaway Blogiversary!
Stay tuned for details.

Oh Sissie, Brag away!!! That is beautiful! Who would have thought burlap could be so pretty? I haven't seen other colors except the tan and white, that peach is gorgeous! Can I use one more exclamation point? You must walk around with talent just oozing out of you! There I did it!!! Theresa

I love the color Sissie! I think you are the queen of rosette's! I have a question for you. First off I love your header, I'm seeing a lot of collages on blogs, but how do you do it? Is it on Flicker? Just curious. Have a fabulous rest of your week. It's so beautiful here in Nor Cal right now. I'm not looking forward to the +100* heat to come! Marcia said...

Oh, I just love this post today!!! First of all I love burlap and use it for so many things. Second, I thougt I was the only person who use the color "peachy pink" :) But that is sometimes the only way to discribe it right? Your curtains are beautiful with the rosettes. And I don't know if you ever noticed that on my side bar is Sophia, a twin to your pretty kitty:)
