Skeleton Keys and Answered Prayer

Now that all of the Christmas decorations are down, it's time to clean the house and bring in some clean, wintry decor.

I switched out our Christmas centerpiece for a simple arrangement of candles, a bowl of pinecones, and a new table runner made from burlap.

I found this burlap fabric at JoAnne's, and fell completely in love. Skeleton keys are definitely making their mark on home decor, and I don't mind one bit. 

In other not-so-related news, Josh has been really encouraged at work lately. I've been praying for him ever since he started this job; it's a job with a lot of responsibility and a huge workload, and very little appreciation. It was hard to see his job situation slowly wear him down the first couple of years. All I could do was pray for him. Within the past year, however, he's been encouraged at work so much. His newest supervisor is so supportive, and really recognizes the hard worker that he is. Isn't God great? I love seeing Him answer prayers, even though the answers aren't always in my timing.

Also, I'm excited because he is getting sent to California for training soon, and I get to tag along! California in the dead of MN winter? Yes please! I can't wait to escape to the land of glamour and sunshine.

Somewhat Simple

  4. OOps, I should have read the entire post! I love the look of this table runner! Thanks for sharing! I don't think I have seen printed burlap!

  5. Bridget- haha, I do that all the time. =D Yup, it was as easy as trimming the fabric to the size I wanted, and pulling out threads until I got a nice fringe all around the edge. So easy and fun!

    I got the burlap at JoAnnes, I can't remember the exact price, but it was definitely under 10 a yard.
