Tabletop Display Domes

This project from Heather at Shades of Tangerine is for those of you who love unique trinkets and rare finds.

Wine Jute Bag

Alison from Classy Columbus Designs made some canvas wine bags to dress up some gift for Christmas.  She says, “I found these wine bags for $19 each in the December 2010 Wisteria catalog, and although they are burlap, and mine is from a dropcloth, mine were virtually free to make with items around the house!
