from honduras, with love

I recently made a purchase off of craigslist for a now out-of-state friend.  Boo.  I miss her!  I purchased burlap sacks.  Ten of them...for her to make these awesome shades for her porch.

In searching through the stash of burlap bags to find 10 of the same color, I found a treasure.  A burlap bag from Honduras.  On the front was a photo of Honduras with the words "Washed Honduras Coffee".  It sat on baby girl's bed for the last few weeks waiting for some inspiration.

                                                           Yesterday the inspiration came.
I took my scissors to the bag and this is what I came up with...
 This chair was donated for our garage sale fundraiser.  It didn't sell.  
I kept it in the garage unable to part with it.
 I'm feeling like the chair needs something else.  A pillow?  A coat of paint and some distressing?  Any ideas?
This I love.   My treasure from Honduras.


  1. absolutely love that frame of honduras and the heart!!!

  2. The pillow is beautiful! The frame is darling!!! Come visit me and my burlap shades! I miss you!

  3. Meg,
    Little did I realize when I bought the burgundy flower pin from you(right before Christmas) that you were adopting from Honduras. My husband and I are traveling there this summer(our 1st time ever) for a short term trip where we'll be teaching in Bible Schools and churches on the historical books of the Bible. Its a small world, isnt it?!
    May the Lord richly bless you as you seek to bring this little one home to you!
