Feedsack Love

Feeling the feedsack love for sure... I just had to post about the love of feedsack fabrics. If only when we went to the market today, our dry goods were packaged in these great sacks, my grocery bill would be even more outrageous than it already is!! Can you imagine the time spent trying to decide which bag of flour or rice to pick?? ugh, I'd love it!!
google feedsacks or browse through flickr and look at all of the wonderful things people create with their feedsack finds... it's very inspirational!!

The patterns and colors will make you swoon!!

I thought I'd share some cute feedsack craft finds on Etsy.. like these feedsack covered buttons found here

And this cute feedsack pillow found here

And these coasters aren't the only things you'll want at this etsy store!!
Enjoy the hunt!!

Well, school is almost out here ( one day left ) and that means the beginning of summer vacation and time to work on my projects, more junking and garage sales, and lazy afternoons at the lake!
I have been very busy and my junking so far this year has been AMAZING!! I have so much to share, I'll be blogging a lot this summer!! I have a few pics of the garden and what I have added so far. I have to admit I haven't done much yet this season, but I'm working on it...

I found this cute chest by the side of the road, a TON of terracotta pots ( this is just a few of them ) and the door and wreath are also junk / garage sale finds.. not bad, eh?

I grabbed a couple of croquet mallots and balls out of the garbage, and just stuck them in the garden for now, but something creative will happen with them later..

And I love this teal birdhouse someone threw in the garbage.. perfect!! I just drove it home and stuck it in the ground.. it couldn't have been easier!!

Stay tuned this week, I will be adding more vintage finds to my etsy store as well as featuring a giveaway!!!
