Dazey Churn and Burlap Sacks

Hey my friends!
I hope everyone had a nice, long weekend.
We have been finishing up some inside projects, because the weather has been horrible.
I made this "herbs" sign for my kitchen, and I've been painting our den.

I wanted to share with you two gifts I received recently.



This amazing, and very old, Dazey Churn was a gift from my husband's uncle.
His great grandmother used it to churn butter.


It was patented in 1922.


It even has all it's original parts, and works like a charm :)


I bought some fresh tulips for our table, to help brighten this dreary winter weather.
Do you notice the cool burlap sack on the table?


I won three burlap sacks from  Donna's 3000 follower Giveaway !
She is amazing! Burlap, just for me :)


Should I make pillows with the burlap sacks?
Or maybe chair covers?


I can't decide, just yet.
So, the burlap sacks will proudly move around the house,
from room to room, place to place,
until I figure out the perfect way to use them.


I've still been cleaning and organizing.
Must stay focused on my goal:
to live with ONLY what I Love, get rid of the rest :)
I'm joining Tuesday's Treasures with Kristin.

How is your resolution coming along?

Thanks for stopping in to visit. I really appreciate all of you.
Thanks for following me, and leaving such sweet words :)
Blessings

Oh I love your goal! I have been trying to do that, too. I've been doing a lot of cleaning out. Unfortunately I've also been doing a lot of shopping, so maybe I'm just making room for new goodies??
I love that herb sign! I have almost the exact same piece of wood, painted a pale blue with black border.....waiting for the perfect saying. I think you just inspired me! ;-)

I love the way your sign turned out. It looks great next to the fabulous butter churn. I think you should try it out :) !

Tricia - A Rosy Note said...

I love that butter churn. Growing up there was a little grandma that lived next door to me and she had a butter churn like that. I would always beg and beg her to make butter. Of course she never wanted to because I would do about two cranks and be sick of it...LOL.

You have such a cute kitchen Becky...your herb sign looks great in there :)

Cat & Cricket said...

I think I am in love!

What a great gift. I have my husband's grand-mothers as well. They were made to withstand the test of time.

I love the daisy churn, and your style is very welcoming, I cannot wait to see the den colors!
I really could use some curtains just like the grain sack ones you have for my kitchen that is a wonderful idea!

resolutions are going great ... I resolved to get rid of the flour and the sugar .... the white stuff!
oh and I resolved not to lust after burlap ... that one is not going so well.

Your home is so beautiful, Becky! And those white tulips are so simple & pretty.
