A Really, Really, Really, Cute Giveaway for the Table!

 

image

I love the burlap, feed sack craze that started a few years ago.  Here, in a living room I did for a client, I bought old burlap bags and had them made into pillows.  I also had covers made for the pillows out of the curtain fabric for when the client wants a change, but I think these burlap pillows give the room a little trendy edge.

 

image

On the other side of her room, for her French chairs, we did lumbar sized pillows out of the burlap bags.

 

 

image

In my own breakfast room, for my Kooboo chairs I opted for reproduction feed sack pillows from Restoration Hardware.

 

 

This burlap runner was handmade by Laurie Blaswich, an interior and textile designer who also runs the Etsy shop Bella Inspirations.   This dining room was featured in Fifi O’Neil’s book “Romantic Prairie Style” HERE.

 

 

image

At Laurie’s Etsy shop, Bella Inspirations, she sells both old and new things.  Items like this feedbag style pillow – perfect for the bed or the sofa.  So cute!

 

 

image

She sells vintage pieces – like this beautiful silver vegetable dish.  I would use this for a jewelry tray on a vanity.

 

 

image

This numbered hanging basket caught my eye – it would be so cute in the kitchen or the office.  I really love Laurie’s  Etsy shop Bella Inspirations, so I was thrilled when she offered to do a giveaway!

 

 

image

And here is the giveaway:   Bella Inspirations has graciously agreed to give away this beautiful fringed burlap runner.  It is pictured in the dining room of the popular blog A Country Farmhouse  HERE.  This picture shows you can use the burlap runner in a fancy dining room or in a casual breakfast room.   So pretty!!

 

image

Here is another view of A Country Farmhouse’s dining room, showing the giveaway runner.  Such a beautiful room!!  The runner is perfect here – linking its color and texture to the seagrass rug and also as a mid range tone between the deep browns and whites.  Perfect!   A side note  - the owners bought that portrait for under a $100  - without a clue as to who it was.  It turns out to have been painted from a Life Magazine cover of the mother of actress Angelica Huston and the wife of her father John Huston.  Sadly, she died quite young in an automobile accident.

And, the dining room this year at Christmas.

Each page on her ETSY has MORE THAN ONE THING I was uber interested in, but I must admit I DO have "JUST THE RIGHT PLACE (!)" for the grainsack pillow... And those RUNNERS annnnd pillows w/ the German printing (we lived in Germany, off and on, for 18 years while my husband was in the Army) NATURALLY speak to my heart's memories of all our uber-wunderbar times n' trips there!!!

    Such a lovely and generous giveaway!!! Thanks for the smiles!

    Thank you ladies, we have a beautiful 5 1/2 foot square table our daughter built in shop class. It's based on a Pottery Barn design with a cross-braced pedestal so no one bumps a leg. We have a church pew on one side, a railroad bench on another and chairs to finish it out. We've had 12 people around it feasting and visiting. The runner would look beautiful on the table.

  101. I don't want to enter the give away.

    I wanted to make a suggestion for your beautiful breakfast room. The seat cushions on those wicker chairs are square foam. This gives something of stiff look to and otherwise casual setting. Maybe the same covers could be fiber filled or even down so they looked squishy and soft. You have done a sensational job with your house and with your client's houses. My hat is off to you. Ann

  114. I'm always on the look out for antique burlap or canvas sacks, linens or any vintage French material. While living in Paris this spring/summer I happened upon 2 canvas postal sacks from the 5th arrondissment at the Porte Vanves brocante for only 10 euros each. The salesman was amazed at my hysterics as I snapped them up before he knew what happened! Now I just need to figure out what to do with them! As for the adorable Etsy shop--I'm entranced with the blue seltzer bottle.

  115. I have been a long time fan of Laurie's she is so talented!

  138. Ciao bella, The table runner with that create, long fringe makes a statement but I decided not to choose the give-a-way gift and to give myself permission to have anything so I choose these two favorites only because I cannot make something similar - Crossbody tote (for dog beach - balls, bags, & morning flashlight, Starbucks card) and the BLVD enamel sign.

    Having said that, am interested to know the length of the pearls. I love pearls and denim...Laurie, how long?

    2. What a great website! I would pick the French Country Hanging Plate Rack. There are so many wonderful things! I am tempted to order that today, however under shipping it states that she would rather have it picked up since shipping charges are a bit steep.
      I love your blog! I especially love it when you show pictures of your home! You have a beautiful home!
      Thanks!

  176. How to choose? How to choose? There are so many beautiful items. With great difficulty I narrowed it down to the 19th Century Table Runner and now (gulp) it's gone. You lucky person. Second choice is the plaid footstool. Just the right height for a curl up in my favorite chair with a book. pbecker@ix.netcom.com

    Thank you, Joni, for introducing me to another great blog and a yummy Etsy store.
