A grain of inspiration. . .

During a recent (and rare) afternoon of visiting blogs I discovered Kathleen over at Musings From A French Cottage. How many of us long to fill our cupboards and linen closets with beautiful, old French grain sacks? What IS it about this simple textile that causes a lot of hearts to pitter patter when they see it?But they are one of those splurges that drains the wallet quite a bit...hmm, big, beautiful grain sack pillow or a weeks worth of groceries? Well, Kathleen has devised a way to create faux ones! I knew after reading her "how to" post that I just had to share her creation with you. With her permission, here are Kathleen's step by step photos...be sure to visit her blog for detailed instructions. Thanks Kathleen!
