Wonderful Burlap

Hi Bloggerettes!  I'm in a burlap kinda mood. 

Of course the images are from Graphics Fairy.
I like burlap because it looks good with any decorating style.

It can be traditional....

It can be romantic

It can be shabby...

Yep, it can be all that!

I'm getting ready for a giveaway, so check back soon.
I now have 600 plus followers and it's time to give back and show some bloggy love!

Hi Sissie! They are wonderful! I love burlap too! I think we could say that to eachother about many things! I love you pillows with the graphics from Karen, isn't she just the best?! Of course the rosette one is gonna be my favorite, because I've got rosettes on the brain! Have a wonderful day, I'll be checking back soon, Theresa

Oh Sissie, everything you touch is just outstanding and oh so beautiful! I love, love the ruffles and taffeta on the burlap, what a charming look!

Gorgeous Sissie, I love that graphic of the washerwoman, I have made some tags from that same graphic, so vintagey and really, not much has changed!!
My favorite is of course your sweet kitty, I had to give up cats when I married my hubby (asthma). It wasn't a bad trade(lol)!!I had a tabby growing up who seriously though he was a dog, and later a beautiful half-persian with a personality disorder!!
Have a fab weekend, watching my son play volleyball in the summer games so no saleing for me this weekend...

Yea! Why don't you write about the kitty??? She needs her turn in the spot light. I love the burlap pillows. i did a blog about copying onto fabrics, do you use regular fabric to copy onto or fabric made for copying? It seems people do both, I have an antiques booth and I think I might make some for the booth. Thanks for the idea!



Hi Sissie, I love all of your creations and your newest pillows are so pretty. I love the first one... but my favorite is the pink burlap pillow that I bought on your etsy shop. Your cute kitty is just precious! I hope you have a great weekend!

Jane said...

I love all the different burlap pillows. It's amazing the different looks you can create with one fabric. They are all beautiful.

Jeannette said...

Morning Sissie! You've inspired me to give burlap a try-perfect for my beachy theme too! Love the one with the label but the extra touch of trimming on the edge is perfect! just enough!!! I'm trying to catch up - fell in love with that coral/pink shell fabric on your seat cushion! I would leave it - just gorgeous!!! Thanks for your sweet comments on my posts - they mean a lot since I adore your home/style!!! Have a fantastic weekend! Sincerely, Jeannette

Love them all! And LOVE burlap, too! I have done about four projects in the last few months with it...and Osnaburg, too. Did a Graphics Fairy pillow with rosettes last month with grosgrain ribbon. Think I like your taffeta better :)
