I've Got Burlap, How About You?

Even if no one else in the whole world reads my blog, I know that at least my mom checks in from time to time. I'm sure she just comes here to see pictures of her one and only grandson, but she saw this post about how I wanted a pretty burlap table runner, and had one made for me!

Rhoda is having a burlap party, so I decided to post a few pictures of my new addition.

This is now the first thing you see when you enter my home.

I love the texture.

This burlap table runner is just the beginning. I'm planning on having burlap pillows made for my sofa.

Thanks, Mom!

By the way, I took these pics near midnight, and my dog was right in front of the cabinet and wouldn't budge. See? Rudy couldn't care less about burlap.

And, did you notice that ugly brown paneling behind my cabinet? It's finally going away very soon. Woohoo!

Oh I LOVE it! Your Mom is so thoughtful! I am getting into burlap as well. I like that whole texture thing. My friend is in Paris right now and on the lookout for grain/bean sacks. Here's hoping she finds one!

Fun, fun, fun! What are your plans for the wall?

Kasey, I'm loving the runners. Yay for your mom for coming up with that & a monogram. There's just something about a monogram on burlap that gets me going. So glad you joined the party.

How fun! I just scored on a lot of feed sacks for $4.50 a piece in awesome condition! WooHOO!

Love it, Kasey! It looks like you are doing some re-decorating...I don't remember the bunny pic and those accesories last time I was there!! Can't wait to see the paint job.

Love, love, love the table runner. I'm getting hooked on monograms lately. I think yours is a perfect touch to a lovely runner. Your mom is very thoughtful.

The runner is awesome! your pup likes it becuase it makes him feel relaxed. (OK, I'm pushing it...LOL)

I just bought a sewing/embroidery machine. Got my lettering software today. Can't wait to play!
