thrifted burlap transformation

Here's a thrift store transformation that seriously took me all of a few minutes. 
I have contemplated buying this teddy bear in a burlap bag for a couple months now, 
but each time I would talk myself out of taking it home. 
I figured it was more than I wanted to spend... seeings I only wanted it for the burlap.
Well, yesterday I actually picked it up and was told at check-out that it was only 98 cents. 
So it came home with me.


Within minutes I put together this autumn centerpiece for my farmhouse table-scape.
It's weighted with fine stones in the bottom half, 
so it's perfect for keeping anything I fill it with upright.
Don't know why it took me so long to make it mine.
The ideas are limitless!
And the best part... it's burlap.


Speaking of my favorite little thrift store- 
has the most HUMUNGOUS selection of Halloween costumes!

Racks & racks & racks of adult & children size costumes.
AND GUESS WHAT?
All costumes are half-off Oct. 14th & 15th!!
(and most costumes are $5.98 or less)
So hurry for best selection!
