~ Games ~
Hot burlap tip
You may remember this post awhile back. All those lovely burlap things on this chair are burlap sand bags. They sell at the local hardware store for $1.50 each. So I stocked up not knowing what to do with them.
Quite honestly, the obvious choice was pillow cases. I mean, they’re already sewn! All you have to do is throw your pillow inside and you’re done! They’d look really cute with some stenciling too, wouldn’t they?
I use them all over the place!
I’m addicted! Is there such thing as Sand Bags Anonymous?
But just a cautionary note…
Don’t wash and dry them in the machine. It looks like it’s got a perm! NOW WHAT?!?
Oh! Perhaps a dog saddle blanket! That’s always handy to have.
Or how about a George Washington style cat wig?
No no no… this is best. Dear Dog, wipe yer OWN feet! In style.
Indeed go out and buy sand bags and create major pillow mayhem to your heart’s content! But do not wash them like I did. Ok, maybe even NEVER.
For some additional craziness… caption this!

Another SNS #28 entry, this is from Santa’s Workshop And Ideas, and these guys are called… ready?!?
Chocolate Mini Bundt Cakes with Peanut Butter Frosting. Doh!!!!!!! Where’s the fresh coffee?!? Maybe we should do away with the food category. This is painful. Are we full yet?!?

Antique grain sacks! I mean, who doesn’t LOVE them?
You’ve seen them all over and wanted them. Antique grain sacks are gorgeous but generally the prices are not. Well, I have a treat for you today.

Miss Mustard Seed is offering you a custom designed replicated antique grain sack in the design of your choice! She uses a fabric called Osnaburg. It’s a nubby, natural fabric with a loose weave and is an inexpensive substitution for linen or hemp.
Acrylic paint is used, making the item washable and the size of the panel is also customizable so you can use it to make a pillow, mount in a frame, or even upholster a chair!
The value of this offering ranges from $15-$30. So even if you don’t win, if this is something you desire to have, I can safely say it can affordably happen! Please contact Mustard Seed Creations to inquire about your own replica!
And do check out this blog. It proudly displays her decorative furniture painting passion, awesome photography, amazing staging skills, plus an Etsy shop with hand painted items and antiques! It is a complete pleasure to get lost in the pages of Miss Mustard Seed’s Creative Blog.
