Linen and Burlap


I'm having a love affair with these textures and colors. The cool grays and browns, the graininess, and the coarse weave of burlap and linen have me swooning. I love how they wrinkle and fray. I love how my gray linen curtains are. How they elegantly drape all the way to the floor. I had an extra wreath frame laying around from when I made my paper wreaths, so I decided to make a wreath out of burlap. You can buy it here

I'm coveting these linen tunics, too. They're so breezy and French, I'm fantasizing about my future life on the riviera as I browse. On wearing linen: you can't be a particularly fussy person if you want to wear linen. It gets very wrinkled, even if you just sit down for a minute. I think that's part of its charm, but that drives some people crazy.
