Happy Monday! We’re back from our little getaway to the mountains. We all had a wonderful time although I have to say I was a little disappointed. I would have thought that this time of year would have been the peak time for autumn colors but it wasn’t. We were a little too early. The trees were just starting to turn.
While we were there, my daughter-in-law and I did manage to sneak away for a few hours to go to some antiques shops in downtown Luray Virginia and I did purchased a few things. I bought two burlap bags for $5 a piece. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them because they stink to high heaven! I know burlap has a smell but these burlap bags have a strong burlap smell. Do all burlap bags have a strong burlap smell?
I also purchased a little burlap peanut bag for fifty cents. Now that doesn’t smell and it sure is cute
I bought two wooden cheese boxes for $8 a piece. I already have Christmas plans for them.
And I bought a tin rooster! I couldn’t resist, I knew immediately what I wanted to do with him. I’ll be sharing him real soon as I’m already working on him.
If anyone knows how to get that strong burlap smell out of the burlap bags, please let me know. I would hate to get rid of them, but I don’t want that smell in my house.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
