Burlap..my favorite fabric..

Hello! As I still have no communication between Mr. Computer and Miss Camera, I have looked around in my favorite pictures and I have found some favorites that I keep for ideas..while I am afraid I don't know the places I found these(I apologize..I usually get the site.. but can't find them..I would love to give credit where its due!) Burlap is one of the absolute favorites of mine to work with and using it around your home can really add a texture that is quite pleasing...I love the way it is draped above for a outdoor room.. and what a great way to drape it on your porch! (below) Romantic don't ya think? The fall is a great time to use it.. it holds up well in the weather and because its so rugged you can shape it and mold it around things like posts and so I will be using it at the harvest party this year...so excited for that..I really hope I can get my camera to work..I wont be able to buy a new one right now..it hurts to say that! But, I know it will work out somehow..I had such big plans such as taking classes but I guess it will have to wait..
..I hope your September is getting you excited for baking and crafting! And that your doing lots of it! Thanks for stopping by! Love ya! mean it! Stephanie

I love burlap too. I'm using it on a french headboard in my guest room with white linens on the bed - can't wait for it to be finished...

I LOVE burlap, I love how versatile it is! I just made a wreath with it for my door too! And, yes, I've been baking, baking, baking! I have two loaves of rosemary bread rising on the counter right now! I LOVE FALL!

Love how they draped the burlap in that first photo! I use it a lot in making things, but haven't used it a lot in my decor! Must do that!
Hope all is well with you sweetie, and that you are having a good week. I know your harvest party will be wonderful! You gotta get things fixed so we can see all the neat stuff you do for it!!

Love and hugs to you Steph!

Very cool pictures of draping it, and especially with the lights above it..it looks very 'Fallish'. I might have to go get some and use it in my canopy for my last flea market this weekend! Thanks for sharing..always love to come to your blog ;-) Lisa
