(January 4, 2010 - Post Update on Burlap Runners) Due to many requests, I am now offering these burlap runners for sale in my Etsy shop, www.eabdesigns.etsy.com. Thank you!
I finished my burlap runners for our dining room table, complete with screen printing, and really love how they turned out.
I created a custom silk screen with the address of one of our favorite streets in Paris on the Ile Saint Louis near the Cathedral of Notre Dame. We discovered this street years ago on our honeymoon and always revisit it whenever we return. The street is beautiful and it's home to a favorite restaurant, florist shop and gelato stand that we love.
Flowers from the garden, placed in mercury glass votives, brighten the table.
My favorite summer flower is blooming right now, our Paniculata Hydrangea. They grow in a tree form and make beautiful arrangements. I used the smallest blossoms for my table setting, as some blooms reach over eight inches in length. Right now they are a lovely shade of white, but as fall approaches their color will turn to shades of rose, bronze and soft greens. I cut them in the fall and dry them to use in my holiday decorations.
