Burlap Beauties

While at Hobby Lobby recently I found this roll of burlap that was on super duper the cart it went.  Then I found a little tiny footstool and a burlap lampshade (for less than the cost of a cup of coffee)! 

Yesterday, Meg and I ran into a couple of thrift stores just for a quick break out of the house.  I didn't find anything spectacular but, I did come home with a heavy old brass lamp.  I was so excited to get my lampshade done that I forgot to take be fore pics but, you have all seen a million lamps just like this one.  Until now!!! 

Looky, looky!  My burlap beauties:

 I think they are absolutely too cute for words!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
