HIT PAY DIRT


I wanted to share my recent yard sale finds.
This burlap was $3, yes I said three dollars.
I am not sure how many yards are here but I would guess about 8-10 yards.
I am thinking I want to make some sacks with drawstrings to send some of my swap items to my swap partners in.
I am also thinking after sewing up the bags I will embellish with vintage bits of lace and trims and offer them up for sale.
I am also thinking I will dye some of the burlap, burgundy, pink, purple.



Look at this lot of lace and such.
This was found at yet a different yard sale.
For those that yard sale you know what it means when I say I hit pay dirt this one day of shopping, sometimes it just works out that way.



Fantastic don't you think?
Thanks for stopping by.
