FREE burlap pillows for this ole' gal

Lillie Mae knows a bargain when she sees one! When I first started noticing the popularity of burlap throw pillows with vintage prints and advertising on them I didn't fall in love with the idea. Then I decided I did like them and wanted a couple for my bed. But you know me, those crafty little wheels churn around in my head all the time and I knew what a bargain I was going to have my burlap pillows at. FREE! Yep, that's right, the word FREE is what you just read.

Living in the country and on a small farm has many advantages. One such advantage is that we have dirty ole nasty "treasures" all inside the barn and shed. You know yourself that one man's garbage is another man's treasure.

Take a look at my new throw pillows. I love them because it's just what I wanted, authentic vintage, and very affordable. FREE! That word is one of my favorite words.

And doesn't burlap just look and feel like fall weather? It makes me think of pumpkins and hay. It really does. I think when I'm through here and press the post button, I'll go light one of my Old Virginia candles and pretend that the weather outside is actually cooling off.

So whatever you call it, burlap or gunny does look so country and cozy covering a few pillows. I'm thinking about a couple for the living room.

I hope you enjoyed visiting Lillie Mae Acres today. If we all ban together and pretend it's fall maybe it will be real soon.
