>Burlap Runner


My Jersey friend RJ made this beautiful runner for me. I met RJ online on a decorating site. Little did I know we would become very good friends. We finally met 2 years ago in her home.  I felt like I walked into a magazine. I’ve seen her home online. Yes, I loved it but in person it was so much more. The details in every room were so well thought out. Nothing was out of place yet it was so inviting. I felt right at home as soon as I arrived. We exchanged gifts and of course hugged. Her husband ordered us pizza and the time just flew by. RJ has not live in Jersey for a long time but she is still a Jersey girl to me. RJ knows that I’ve been sewing by hand and offered to make me a runner for my sunroom.

Little did I know the runner would be this beautiful! I asked her if she could add a ruffle and she agreed she would. Then RJ hinted she was going to do a little more to it and asked me if she could.
Here is the start to the runner in RJ’s home.
 RJ made it reversible so I could have two different looks. 

RJ made this beautiful flower from fabric!

She added a chocolate brown velvet ribbon. It matches my wicker furniture perfectly!

All Jersey girls need bling!!! Do you not love the rhinestone pin RJ added to the center of the flower? My heart skipped a beat when I saw it! 

 The runner makes my sunroom ROCK!

 It’s the icing on the cake!
I love it!!!!!
