holiday craft from an un-crafty gal......

Don't get me wrong, I love gettin' my glue gun on as much as the next gal...... what I lack in patience, I make up for with desire.....I wish I was more crafty!  I am results, not process, oriented.

My friend Jane Hall, owner of Mustard Moon, a crazy good occassional sale shop, is more optimistic than I when it comes to my crafting skills.  When Jane heard I had broken my ankle and may have some spare time on my hands, she asked if I would create some burlap products to include in her holiday sales.

  After purusing the internet for inspiration, I headed to the thrift store for supplies.  I was lucky to find canning jars and some vintage lace.  I paired those items with the burlap sacks I sewed myself, thank you very much, some 18 gauge wire and voila!

These little {vases} can be hung on a cupboard like I did above, on a window sill, on a wall and filled with winter greens or fragrant herbs {like the rosemary in mine}.

If you are in Minnesota, Jane's December sale begins this Thursday!  Check out her blog for details!

  6. Very cute bags...I am not so crafty myself; I can I just don't usually care too saying every art needs those who appreciate and those who buy. That would be me! Except for scrap booking; I like scrap booking. :)
