Playing Around In The Dining Room & A Tip For Grain Sack Storage

I picked up some great spring bouquets at the grocery store and wanted to spruce up my dining table.


I hadn’t used the two French themed pitchers that I picked up at TJ Maxx after Christmas so I decided to use them as vases.


They go great with the grain sack that I picked up in Normandy on the Brocanting Tour last fall.


It has a gorgeous shade of blue on the triple stripe and I love the hand stitched initials.



Here’s a tip on storing your European grain sacks…ROLL them don’t fold them.  Folding them creates creases which are hard to iron out.  Here’s the grain sack before I steamed it.


I have begun rolling all my grain sacks and they store so much easier and it’s better on the fabric and less ironing.


Everything feels so much fresher in the spring.  What are you doing to your dining table?

Lovely, Kim! Great tip! I wonder if that works on linen tablecloths? I'm going to have to iron the square one I have and try rolling it.

Love the pitchers and the grain sack, and what a fabulous tip on steaming them and then rolling for storage. Great idea. I would love for you to link up to my Inspire Me party that will go live this afternoon at 3 PM. www.astrollthrulife.net. Hope to see you there.

Your table looks lovely, and I know I need to do that with my grain sacks instead of folding and stacking.
