I think it's the ribbon around the bottom edge that just didn't work for me. Or it could be that Mike is just not thrilled with any of my burlap projects in general. He just doesn't get it.
(this ottoman has a "sister" too, someday I'll get around to showing her)

Just thought I’d show you what I’ve been working on this weekend.
It took up a lot of my project time.
She’s a retired racing greyhound.
Isn’t she pretty?
We’re fostering her until she finds her forever home.
She is such a sweetheart.
Katy is 8.5 yrs old and was a top racer for a long time. She ran in 169 races!
Poor girl, she worked hard all her life and is just now looking for a retirement home.
She was fostered locally the last 6 months, but not adopted. Her foster mom couldn’t keep her anymore and very reluctantly let us take over her care.
So far she is fitting in with my two girls just fine.
She’s pretty nervous and confused.
It’s like having a new baby, she needs lots of attention right now.

This curb shopping expedition down memory lane is a bit challenging for me.
Mostly, because I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t repurposed ANY of it yet!
This was all picked up from the curb after a garage sale. You can see some of the items are still tagged.
I do use the doggie bowls.
They get used whenever my grand-dogs are over for a visit.
My own dogs are too big to use these.
These photos are hard to see. It seems I took a lot of different angles though.
See the clock? I kinda like that.
The wrestling figure I gave to my grown son who still watches that stuff. (I just don’t get it)
The nails have been added to my hardware collection, but honestly, I use screws for all my fastening.
But the carriage bolts may come in handy someday.
I thought the metal waste can with the step on lid was the coolest thing ever.
It’s in my garage right now.
It used to be under my work counter in the garage.
I loved that space, where the heck did it go?
It has to be out there somewhere…under everything else. Hmmm, I should probably clean it out and get back to this lovely workspace come spring.
And the cowboy boots! I so want to make a couple birdhouses out of those. I’ve seen it done on the Gardenjunk Forum.
Wouldn’t that be neat?
With license plates for the roofs?
This bike is waiting to be spray painted white to replace my old leaning bike.
I threw the old one away last spring because it was just too rusted out. (Shhh…Don’t tell Donna I said that, ok?)
This one is waiting behind the shed to step in as a replacement. All I need to do is strip off the wires and spray paint.
I have a metal basket for the handlebar, and a very old child’s seat to attach to the back. Won’t that look cool with flowers added?
This a a picture of the first bike long before I threw it away. It leaned against that tree by the driveway for at least 3 years.
Thanks for taking a walk down memory lane with me this morning!
