No Ruffles on my burlap! Eeeeekkkkkkkkkkkkk!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I've been playing around and making some pillows.
This one I call the shabby burlap pillow.  It's rough around the edges and I used burlap thread to slip stitch the ends together and left it all kinda stringy.  I like how it turned out.  What no ruffles????
I tied a silk brown ribbon around it just for fun. And added a sweet tag I won in a giveaway from Rosemary at Ozma of Odds.
It's quite simple, yet pretty.

A small corner of my booth ready for Fall.

And of course my booth always has Pink!

Well, I'm off to blog hop.  Can't wait to see what everyone
is doing, showing, writing and creating.

I love the burlap with ruffles AND with the shabby edges! It's all good. :)
Although I grabbed a burlap pillow when laying down on the couch the other day and it does NOT feel good when you lay your head on it, lol.

Donna said...

Love your pillow, Sissie! Your booth is amazing, I would certainly have fun shopping there if I were in your area!

Sharon Wengel said...

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Sissie, I love that pillow. Great idea leaving the edges that way and love the ribbon and tag added.

Marsha (Sassy Mini Dolls) said...

Ozma of Odds said...

...oh Sissie ~ there ARE times when ruffles aren't needed...very rare times, as in this ONE pillow without ruffles!! LOL
I love the look of these pillows and runners in burlap, BUT I'm still trying to figure out how evryone puts up with the smell of it!?!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Sissie I love all your pillows! Cute with the brown ribbon and tag!

Pam said...

I think I prefer this one without ruffles. Something very simplistic about the burlap and ribbon just shouts FALL. And your booth is gorgeous!

Deserae said...

I love your beautiful new creation even without ruffles...your booth looks amazing too! Love it :o)

Something Nice and Pretty said...

Are you sick??? No ruffles, come here let me feel your head, you must have a fever. Love the shabby look of the pillow.

Debbie @ said...

I agree with EVERYBODY! I love your pillows, love your booth, love all of it! You are a display artist my dear! Wow...what you do with fabric never ceases to amaze me. The other day I was making a pillow for my was simple..but I thought to myself now what would Sissie do to make this look incredible? All the sudden my mind was filled with plenty of ideas! Those ideas weren't there a few seconds before mind you! hahahaha....
You have that certain look! And I for one love it!

*The Beautiful Life* said...

I sure wish I could visit your booth someday! Lovely, SIssie!! :)

Happy Wedensday Elaine

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Cute shabby pillow without ruffles! Love all the pinks too, particularly the dress with the dots. Love the pumpkins below too. There's not too much I don't like! Wish I lived closer to your booth, there girl!

Sissie, I love your pillow. Simple things can be the most striking! It is so pretty!! Love & blessings from NC!

Olivia~ said...

Hello sweet Sissie! I just adore everything you do, I would use these burlap pillows on my wicker sofa outside. Oh my, I went back and found your sisters house it is oh so pretty and it photographs really well, I am now going to be patient and wait to find a fireplace screen. Cross my toes and fingers.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

The Polka Dot Closet said...

My Mom would love it plain, she hates that I fru fru everything up! LOL I wanted to tell you that I painted up a valet like you showed on your blog and added a couple of vintage children's hangers and put it in my booth here in Orlando and It sold! Right away! Thank you for the great idea! I won't pass up another valet when I see one. I learn so much from the blogging world! and you!


LuLu Kellogg said...

I love it Sissie....everything you create is always so lovely!


Nancy said...

I think it's fun with no ruffles. But I do also like your ruffled pillows. They are all neat!


Marydon said...

G'eve sweet Sissie ~ I love your creation, & your treasure in your shop ... that pink & white dress on the dress form is DARLING!

We are still hammering away on the new house prob be done by end of this week. Got the construction completed on our house yesterday ... wait until you see what WE did, I am in love ... it is so pretty.

Have so missed you & everyone ... be back full time soon, Sissie.

My best to your son. Hugs of love to you,

CHERI said...

I always love seeing what you've created!

Barbara said...

Your booth really looks super Sissie! I bet you can hardly keep the stock in it for all the sales going on! I like the unruffled pillow but I like the ruffled ones also. LOL Without the ribbon I can see where today's pillow would be nice for a man's room. You just have so much talent!

Hi Sissy! I just love the no-ruffles look even though I've been in a ruffle mood lately, but for some reason this look really works on this pillow. Congrats!!!

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

I love your pillow! I still don't have any burlap around here, and I need to get some. I love this simple look. You know I am a simple girl :-)

Chrissy said...

No ruffles needed,its perfect!! x0

Sandy said...

Hi Sissy... what a charming booth you have created and I wish you lots of luck with it! Your pillow also is very nice!
I wanted to thank you for your sweet words on my pillow cases..I hope they like them!
Thanks again

Allison said...

Very nice, Sissie! Your presentation is beautiful with the silk ribbon and tag. I love the simplicity of the's rustic and elegant! I do adore your ruffles as well! It's fun to see a corner of your booth. Very classy and beautiful.

June said...

Sissie I adore this pillow!!! It reminds me of the grain sacks we would get oats in for our horses several years ago, before plastic took over the world. I don't think we will be seeing much done with those in the future, but you never know. Some clever artist will come up with some use for them I'm sure. But I really love this pillow.
You are such a rock star in my world!!!
hugs to you...

Dorthe said...

Sweet Sissie,
it is so clean-simple, and will look fantastic, together with green and white pumpkins-or on a rusty chair- love it.
Hugs, Dorthe

I think your pillow turned out fine without any ruffles...although I do like your ruffles. As always I still like seeing pics of your pink booth.
