A burlap vase on a quiet afternoon...

 Hello everyone, I hope you have had a great week so far. 


It rained today, but the sun peaked right at my favourite time - when the light is soft and gentle and it slowly glides through the window filling the room with a dreamy glow. 

We enjoyed a little bit of this today.  Tomorrow is another day...I wonder what it will bring...

Not a lot of words from me today.  I hope your day is wonderful.

much love,

I used an old tin can, covered it with some Canvas Corp burlap and a Sharpie for the text.

  1. Not a lot of words needed, Lu. Sounds like kind of a reflective day for you. Love your burlap project...and the shoes that are made for walking- xo Diana

  2. So cute! We are redoing our basement and I've bought 5 yards of burlap and bought already made burlap vases on clearance at Michaels. Now to figure out a window covering using the burlap for my basement windows..... ; )

  3. This is so sweet & beautiful! I love white flowers! ~ Carrie

  4. Love it! How did you do the handle? It looks great.

  5. I have been seeing quite a lot of writing on burlap at the moment and it looks good but I love your idea of using a marker instead of a stencil, so much easier and quicker :) have a happy day sweetie

    Bee happy x

  6. How did you do the trim and handle?

  7. Hey guys...thank you for taking the time to leave a message...for the handle I simply hot glued a thick rope on one side and then again on the opposite side, prior to wrapping the burlap around the can. I knew I wasn't going to be hanging it,so I just wanted the illusion of a handle. The trim is the same think rope just hot glued around the opening. Hope that helps!....thanks again...xo

  8. The entire arrangement is just beautiful! Thanks for sharing.
