Burlap Bow Crazy!

I said I was taking a blog break but all I could do was think about what to post next and what to photograph.  I guess once a blogger always a blogger.  It's in our blood and we just can't spend too much time away.  So, I'm back and feeling refreshed and ready to roll.

I did manage to get a few small projects done.  I have become obsessed with this burlap ribbon that I ordered from etsy.  I made a burlap pillow, of course, and the little pin that you see in the center came from Ness at Marley and Lockyer.

I love the look you get from adding a burlap bow to these cute painted mirrors...

I could just see these grouped on a wall.

I didn't stop there, oh no.  I just had to add another burlap bow to this cute basket.  The pendant in the center was found at Michaels.
I love it!

Gizzy says I better not try putting one of those burlap bows on her.
That's why she's ignoring me.
Okay that's it.  Time to get out there this weekend and create, make, bake, sew, photograph, write, repurpose, build and find something wonderful and share it with us.

What wonder! I am going out to my stash right now and finding some burlap strapping and see if I can make a bow. Thanks for the idea.

Pam @ Frippery said...

I am going on the hunt for that burlap ribbon. You have inspired me!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

All your burlap bows look great, Sissie! It seems to be very versatile that you can use it on all these different items. I have some burlap garland, but it looks like the ribbon you got is easier to deal with.

LOL- Well, THAT was quite a break! You must have put on your supercharged boots and ran right back to blogland!

I love your burlap bows. They are just darling on everything...except, of course, Gizzy~If you put a bow on him Gizzy will surely want to come live with me then! Happy Weekend- xo Diana

Yep I thought of taking a break myself honey but I think of all of you guys every day so it would be hard to do.
Glad your back and I am praying for your pretty kitty that there is no more fabric left.
