My Burlap Pillow Won at Bella Rustica’s Giveaway

Come, fill the Cup, and in the Fire of Spring
The Winter Garment of Repentance fling:
The Bird of Time has but a little way
To fly – and Lo! the Bird is on the Wing.

from the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam revised by Edward Fitzgerald

Elegant elegance is lovely, but rustic elegance is liveable.

And when the product is handmade and ‘all proceeds are donated to Those Who Do or someone who is doing for animals but needs a little help’, how can you resist being chic and conscientious?

Kim Kelly, the artist behind Bella Rustica Market, relays, “I personally make each pillow…I begin with cutting the burlap and then I surge the edges for a professional finish.  After the down & feather pillow form is placed I finish the pillow by hand.  Burlap is tricky to work with but the results are elegant yet rustic, a perfect combination.”

Want to get the look?   Be sure to check out Kim’s “The Elegance of Rustic Series” on her blog.  She’s redecorated her new Simons Island, Georgia home room by room in the Italian elegant rustic style, and includes her tips, sources, and breathtaking pictures from her inspiration file.

Mille grazie, Kim!

Until next time, stay shabby!

Hi Sandy
I adore Kim! and I have one of her burlap pillows as well :)

I created her blog header and page added her music and such just because she needed help and asked for all her kindness she gifted me some treasures :)

Your whites are just divine and an added bit of burlap adds just a little mistery to your design style ;)

Love seeing every bit of what you inspire when you pop up hear and there.

See you and your beauty soon, come for a visit and see the rustic side table I created saw horse style added with rustic elegance !

Have a beautiful weekend.
