Totally awesome jute weaving! This would make a stunning wall hanging with just a few flowers and a simple curtain rod!

My second most favorite material in the world is burlap! I adore this little burlap flower tutorial! Remember that burlap comes in many colors and dyes very easily too so you can really get a nice variation going with these.

I'm a firm believer that everything in this life happens for a reason. It's not always easy to see it when you are in the midst of it, particularly if an event is a less than pleasant experience, but when the dust settles and youire able to sit back, you can see the purpose like a blaring neon sign. And then everything makes perfect sense ...
