Mini Burlap Sack - A (simple) Place Setting Idea

This week, my mind has been a little preoccupied with 'things' and I've had a tough time focusing.  I feel like I'm in a loop and continue to go around and around in circles not really accomplishing much.  But what's funny is that I'm not standing still, I am doing and doing, but not doing...ugh.  Does that make any sense? 

  Nevertheless, I have been meaning to show you this cute
little idea you may want to use for a Thanksgiving table....
I've had this in my 'idea file' for a while now.  It's beyond simple - a little burlap sack filled with some rice and some wheat stalks.  I wrote the No.2 with a Sharpie marker and placed it on a plate.  Like I said, simple right?  I imagine several placed along the table would look so cute.

How's your Thanksgiving planning going?  I'm hoping you can come back later tonight and share what you've been up to at our HAPPY HOUR linky!  

Okey dokey, looking forward to seeing you later on tonight! 

much love,

  1. Burlap is one of my favorite textiles to work with. This is lovely...

  2. Did you make your own sack? Love the wheat stalks.

  3. I love it. I still want to know where your inspiration comes from what if you add essential oil to them for scent? I have been feeling down because I have not done anything creative lately.

  4. So simple and sweet! I love something made out of burlap :). I totally have those weeks where it feels like my head is spinning but nothing is getting done.

  5. Oh for cute!!! Love your burlap creations!

  6. Unlike Nicolette at the top of the Comments List, I loath working with burlap. Still, I LOVE the results when I'm done (which always includes vacuuming up threads for days and days after everything is completed).
    Your little project comes just in time for me. I'm working on a woodsy theme for Christmas Eve dinner, which includes a burlap and gingham tablecloth. These little puppies will be just the thing to hold little gifts for my guests. Thanks!

  7. love the simplicity - perfectly wonderful for an humble tabletop adornment!

  8. That looks soooo pretty!!! How do you get your linkWithin to change? Mine keeps showing the same three posts! I love looking through all your posts.


  9. So cute and creative, just love your ideas:)! Have a good one!
