Grain Sack Ornaments & Stockings

I saw these ADORABLE German grain sack ornaments and stockings over at 3 Fine Grains’ Facebook page. I really want those starfish. Aren’t they adorable?

I love that they are the real deal too, real authentic German grain sack ornaments! You might remember that 3 Fine Grains is the company that made my stork pillow, and another new pillow I have yet to show you! Kymberley does a beautiful job, everything she creates is high quality, lovely and inspiring.

    I am barely getting my Christmas decorating started no less a big project!! Though as I am decorating my dining room it makes me want to get the paint brush out big time!! It will just have to wait!


  2. {this is glamorous}

    hello melissa! and yes — taking on new projects as we speak — repainting walls, hanging new artwork, and another project that involves gold-leaf and high gloss white paint…

    happy, happy christmas to you!

    The day before Thanksgiving I recieved a visit from the “bank”… the man said that my Land Lord whom I have been leasing and paying payments to for 3 years decided 10 months ago to stop paying the mortgage… I am moving the week before Christmas!

    :) well…. i guess thats a good excuse to not break out the Christmas decor this year huh? :) Heck I am always up for a new adventure.

    I will just have to admire yours and pretend…

    Thanks always for the inspiration.

    Claudia ♥ ♥

    I’m working on oodles of new home projects too in Marrakech! I shared some my home on my blog this week if you want to have a peek, Melissa.

  9. Marianne

    These are beautiful! They fit right in with my desire for more natural tones and materials. If only I could justify buying all new Christmas decorations each year.

  10. Abbie

    Those decorations make me want to get the sewing machine out and make a bunch! Of course, since I already am in the middle of scraping wallpaper off my girls’ bedroom (which REALLY should have waited until after the holidays!) I better not start another project. But file it away and maybe in July when I have a minute, I’ll start early for next year!

    I love, love, love the colour palette here. So natural and warm. Very suitable for an Australian Christmas. Thanks for sharing! Meredith xo.

  12. cindy

    I saw those ornaments and stockings too *swoon*. And no, you are certainly not alone in beginning projects as the holidays are upon us! I just repainted my familyroom :) I think getting all the pretties out motivates us to get done those projects we’ve been putting off. And having a blog helps too….gives you an audience!

  13. Rene

    Yes! For some reason I am actually thinking of taking picture frames apart and painting them, starting slipcovers, etc. This makes no sense when there are so many other things that need to be done. Ugh.

  14. gina

    Um, YES!! I have my husband looking at desks for the guest room- he’s like really Gina, this can’t wait? But I think at a time we know our house is going to be filled with lots of friends and family we want to get those things done- instead of saying, well, I’m going to do this….

  15. Emily

    Love them. I made my son a burlap stocking this week and it’s pretty cute, considering I made it. Ha.

    I would love to link up one of the many holiday things i’ve blogged this week but my blog is dead. Woe is me.

    Happy painting, Melissa!

  16. Charlotte

    Luv the ornaments — simple and oh so sweet…

    It makes me want to start all over again! Love the simple color palate. Thank you for sharing.

    And I too want to redecorate, paint and demo the home this time of year. I think it comes with entertaining. :)

    So many great ideas already! I could spend hours reading through your blog and the links! Thanks for always inspiring us to bless our families by blessing our homes.

    Thank you for hosting these little parties, Melissa. I’m looking forward to the big home tours, but it’s so nice to find bits of inspiration along the way!

    I do find myself feeling crazy with all sorts of ideas for my home-I’m just filing those ideas away and practicing patients until the New Year!

  21. Jo - To a Pretty Life

    Thanks for sharing those ornaments! I think I just might make some…of course they’ll be made of dropcloth, and not authentic antique grain sacks…but the look will be similar!

  22. Christi from Charm & Grace

    You are so funny about having to restrain yourself from painting. Same exact thing here… I have decided to turn my living room into an art studio since I have 2 dens (well, I actually decided a long time ago). But I have been so busy with artwork that I haven’t had time to do it. I bought the paint 2 months ago; it is sitting in my basement. I still haven’t put up my favorite Christmas tree which goes in that room because I thought we would paint first. I may as well realize it’s not going to happen before Christmas… sigh …too many commissioned pieces to complete. So, I told hubby this morning to go ahead and put up the tree that goes there. :) It’s a good news/bad news situation, but now I am looking at the first of the year to paint and move into my new studio…

  23. teresa

    I love the stockings- wish I had made some like that, just picked some up that aren’t nearly as cute.
    Thanks for the link party and great ideas.

  24. lylah ledner

    how lovely and how simple…..i’m beginning to think that simple is most lovely….especially after a major move…of which you can relate…..

    so, how much did you “get rid” of before your major move? :-)

    love to u….lylah

    These are beautiful and would be stunning with the birch wreath I’m making (and hopefully completing before Christmas). Thanks for hosting another wonderful party.

    Hi Melissa,
    I just got my necklace from Julian and Co. I love it – it’s perfect.
    The decorations are wonderful. I love the neutral colors.

  30. Kristi

    Those stockings are sheer perfection! I went and joined (or followed, or became a fan of, or whatever the correct terminology is) the 3 Fine Grains FB page. Absolutely gorgeous items! Thanks for sharing. I won’t be decorating for Christmas this year…simply no time, and with my little condo so unfinished, there’s really no room. I’m enjoying seeing other people’s decorations!! I’ll have to live vicariously this season.

  31. Elizabeth

    Absolutely, but I sometimes get frustrated when ALL the projects don’t get done. I’m working on just letting it go sometimes. Our guests are mostly family, and they love us regardless.

    Thanks for hosting, I linked up. I think the Holiday theme is great!

    I love these things! Will have a look at the link

    I am taking your button for my sidebar, Melissa. I am moving so slow this year. Not doing as much. I’ll try to add a post, to your list, Friday.
