Wonderful Burlap Christmas Garland

Jen from Magnolia Junk made this wonderful burlap garland to be used during Christmas time.  It's fabulous!  

She always makes fabulous stuff, so no surprise there!
and she made it an interchangeable message banner by NOT attaching the "letters".....
Those are just hanging there with clothespins...!!
Isn't that a brilliant idea!

Love it!
Good job, Jen!!!

Burlap is Great "Green" Curtain Material

Goedemiddag iedereen!!!!
{That's Dutch for "good afternoon everyone....!!!"}

These "burlap"curtains are fabulous!
Love the rope tie-back!

Before I started my fascination with burlap and potato sacks, my sister-in-law was way ahead of me and made burlap curtains in her kitchen, including rope loops and knots.... They were just plain out adorable! But she moved on to bigger and better things before I caught on, so I don't have a picture of them....
The picture of these burlap curtains came from here.
Very cute!  Looks awesome!
