Burlap vase giveaway

I am loving burlap lately and it's not just for pillows and tote bags anymore.I created some pretty vases to diplay ,these here are on my day porch . I used blue vintage mason jars and then sewed pockets to holds them with burlap. Added old ribbon and vintage photos and here are the results!I love the one with the horse photo on the front and then I added an old horse prize ribbon to the side with glass mercury beads hanging below.
I will create one of these for one lucky winner! You'll have to fill with your own flowers .Just leave a comment on this post and for a second chance to win you can follow this blog and for a third chance to win you can blog about it ! Just be sure to post each time .

A little sampler on burlap with my initial and little scraps of this and that.Not sure what I'll do with it now.


And remember my magazine post ,the endless piles.Well here they are now.
All the pages of inspiration pulled from them and in one binder now! So much better than trying to remember where I seen what that I liked and in what issue? It took a few days but i did finally finish them all. The only magazines I didn't do this too where my Somerset Life's and other Stampington issues. Those are like pretty little books to me.




Will announce the winner this Friday!I also will be adding some Barbie T shirts to the shop tonight! xo Andrea

Andrea...I have been tearing out magazine pages for years and even have them filed....of course, it is a constant "keeping up" with it as there is so many great ideas out there! I have two boxes full, in file folders. No, I would never tear out of Somerset, but I have found wonderful things in the old Ideals books, how about you? Love your creations!!! debbie

Your burlap vases are gorgeous and inspiring! I also love the sampler you created. You could put it in a shadow box and add some of your favorite things or make it a small toss pillow topper.
