Aye Carumba, it is too HOT!

 

     I haven’t been able to move much in the last few days because it is so hot here. Seriously, I am spoiled because our average temperature, all year long, is 70 degrees. I don’t know one person here that has air conditioning, you just don’t need it. Yesterday, it was 100! Today was cooler, but I was lazy.

  There was no way that I was garage saling, no thrifting, no going outside, no well, moving. On the bright side, I have gotten to wear some cute sundress that never get to see the light of day.

     Where was I? Oh, Thrifty finds! One of the great things about having a boyfriend that manages a grocery store is that you can call him and ask him to bring that one thing you forgot to get home. The other thing? Well, he brings the coolest freebies home!

     Yesterday, he came home with a garbage bag full of ………

Burlap bags! These aren’t small either, they are like twin size bed big. They sort of smell like the beans and coffee that was in them, but once washed they will be grand.

     Also, these weren’t really for decorating, but they were 50 cents a head and too pretty not to share.

Can you believe the colors? The one on the left is actually a bright yellow, but went wonky with the picture for some reason.

 

Murphy Grace wants his dog food in pretty colors like that. Too bad!

OMG Gwen, I love your burlap bags! What are you going to do with them? You are a fortunate little girl for having that store mgr. as your schweetie. I am always on the lookout for some kind of burlap bag. All I ever find are torn and rotting seed bags... ICK My dream is to have a replica of one of those old Swedish ones.( cuz I could never afford the real thing) all pretty and stenciled. Dreams can be fun...
hugs, Sue

What fun, except for the heat of course! Are you sure Murphy Grace isn't thinking "Those bags smell great, now how can I get my paws on them if she keeps taking pictures?

We had similar weather in the Bay Area this weekend: Saturday was really ridiculous!
Love your cauliflower pics - I was in the store and saw a green one but didn't dare buy it. :)

Those cabbages give a whole new name to cabbage roses. Beautiful. Can't wait to see what you come up with for those bags.

Have a great week and stop by and say hello.

That is some serious burlap bag heaven. Wow, how amazing.

Love the colorful cauliflower. We love to roast cauliflower in the oven. Do the colorful ones taste the same? We haven't tried those yet, but at 50 cents, I sure would.
