How 'bout a FUN GIVEAWAY...???


OK....sounds like a plan to me !! 

But first, I want to visit a few photos from my archives, if you will.






Last year, I won this great
 BURLAP COFFEE BEAN BAG
and I was thrilled....


I walked around my house, carrying the bag and wondered "WHAT CAN I DO WITH THIS CUTENESS...?"










 THEN, I saw this at SAVVY SOUTHERN STYLE
the chest and hanging coffee bag on the left belongs to her sis, KELLY. 

Now, I, too, have a ROOSTER chest....
..........so, of course, I had to COPY .....
...what can I say....?...I was BORN to copy !!...
and if you don't believe ME....ask DEBBIE DOO....:))

Mr. Sweet made this cute foot stool several years but we had never covered it.

Are those not the sexiest legs on a stool EVER !!





How cute is THIS....using another burlap
coffee bag...

...this is the top of the stool...and Mr. Sweet added that cute button to make the top "tuff" a bit.
You can click HERE
to read about "us" covering this little  stool.



 Burlap Coffee Bags are so fun to use because they add TEXTURE ...
plus the WRITING is amazing and adds another level to your decorating.

 I found these cute STOCKINGS and  PILLOW somewhere on a blog...
sorry...I don't remember which one.

There's a ton of things you can make with these bags...

That little footstool is adorable! I'm glad you showed this post. I won a coffee sack too and couldn't figure out what to do with it.

NanaDiana said...

Darling-bj! Love what you did with yours. Good luck to everyone!!! xo Diana

Patty Patterson said...

I never knew so much could be done with a burlap bag. We've used them for sack races, but that's about it. Now you've got me thinking!

Jackie said...

Lovely choices to decorate with those bags.

Enjoy your giveaway. I hope whoever wins does something fabulous with their bag.

God Bless

I have a cute little burlap coffee bean bag on my fridge. It's held up with some magnets inside. I like it a lot. Please toss my name into the hat. I'd make something for my sis who remembers her mission trip to Brazil so fondly. You do the cutest things, BJ. I'm always amazed by you!

BJ, as you know I am a follower. Love what you have down with your coffee bags - they are great. Your
window box looks very good with the plants you put in there = great crub appeal.
