Rain and Burlap.

It's my kind of day..


Since I'm home alone today thought I'd treat the dining table to a new runner.
Love all the linen and burlap(hessian to us aussies)that I've been seeing lately.
Found a big bunch of it at a charity store.
I added a sweet frill,some candles and pretties..

I love it..

Goes nicely with my chair covers that I made out of vintage tablecloths.

Thanks for visiting.xx


  1. Gorgeous Tara! You are a clever girl. Enjoy your rainy day - I am enjoying blue skies here (for now)!!! Christine xx

  2. I love what you have done! Do you think that our hessian is a looser weave than burlap? I wasnt sure, I always wondered about that.. Beautiful chair covers too!
    Hope you are having a gorgeous rainy day!!
    hugs, Lauraxx

  3. That looks lovelt Tara, its amazing what you can achieve when you have a day to yourself... Enjoy!!!

  4. Hi laura,yeah I think it's looser, but it's about the closest we've got.Thanks for visiting.xx

  5. It's charming Tara!! Now for the menu choices...teehee!

  6. I can only imagine what would happen to your home if you had a week on your home....YOu could make us all one.....well done on your creative vision.

  7. I love hessian too Tara. The runner looks gorgeous and finished off with the frill - very creative. Love the chair covers too.
    Have a good week.

  8. Thanks tara. I have been looking EVERYWHERE for a similar fabric , just a little bit softer to the touch maybe. My family are a bit fussy and complain about how scratchy hessian is!! Dont you hate that!!!!
