PINK SATURDAY!

Welcome to another Fantastic Pink Saturday! Where ideas abound, Pink devotees lurk, and creation is everywhere.
Recently while looking at http://marleyandlockyer.blogspot.com/
I noticed they had pillows or table runners that looked like they were made from feed sacks, grain bags, seed bags etc.
Hey I live on a chicken ranch/farm and thought "I know I have something like that out in the BARN!" So I trotted myself out to the barn and sure enough, here was a Burpee seed bag ready to be made into something! Farm chic! My hubby would bend over guffawing~laughing hysterically that anyone would ever think to make a pillow out of a grain bag or feed bag!

I tried to add a little spring in my living room with a pink rose vintage tablecloth over a round table....

Thank you for visiting...I'm off to the barn to see if there are more grain bags around!
Blessings

How great to have decorating materials in the barn! I have some feed bags on pillows on a bed upstairs, and I love them! Your tablecloth is so pretty, and it does look like Spring. laurie
