30 Burlap bags...what to do, what to do?


It's a very well kept secret, I know, but I love yard sales!! Actually, it's an addiction, that I am not ashamed to reveal. I love saying it came from a yard sale and love saying how much I paid for it! I am proud of it...no embarassment, I brag, I gloat! So... I bought these bags at a wonderful yard sale and...drum roll please...they were all put together in a stack with burlap thread and they were...

wait, wait...

I'm hyperventilating...better now, thanks...

they were all $2. That's not EACH people! That's for ALL 30!

For more on the story of these bags go to my blog: More Powerful Beyond Measure at http://artteachergirl.blogspot.com/2010/06/favorite-yard-sale-finds.html. I'll warn you, however, I am not proud of some parts of the story...I've prayed over it now though and I've vented so I'm over it! All in fun ya know?

Where else but this wonderful site can you get so into burlap bags and yard sales? LOVE IT!!

JunknStuff writes: O.K. Every time I see burlap, I think of the A-MAZING curtains that a friend of mine made for her dining room. Her taste is really hih scale, but with a definite CREATIVE flair. So, to see burlap on her dining room windows really surprised me. She hung them on either side of her grand windows, letting them puddle elegantly on the floor. Then, she swagged purple-ish, blue-ish silk as a valance in between. it was absolutely beautiful! It really took the common, & made it pop with the "Wow! Factor." So, there's a neat idea for you! Have fun! Posted: 4:39 pm on July 25th

oldnews writes: I totally get it! I get excited everytime I go out into my workshop and see the big roll of burlap that I found way in the back of a storage closet. Probably been there 20 years but when I found it you would have thought I's won the lotto! It's the little things in life... Marie Posted: 10:32 pm on June 12th
