from trash treasure

i've been scouring the thrift stores for weeks now looking for two small bowfront chests to paint for bedside tables - haven't found any chests yet, but yesterday i snagged a large ottoman for $9 at goodwill - great shape, just ugly!

nothing some vintage fulton feedbags couldn't handle - i whipped up this cover today - now i have a place for a tray, my laptop, my feet or the kids!  :)  yeah!

then, i got carried away with the yarn - did someone say squirrel?  lol!

grainsack market totes

We love these market totes. They are crafted with vintage domestic grainsack bags... bemis, chase, fulton - all heavy duty cotton bags. Bemis originally made their bags to hold 100 pounds of seed and grain back in the 20s. After making pillows for years, we've accumulated quite a few stacks of remants, so in the spirit of "waste not, want not", we are happy to offer these bags.
