Burlap Inspiration…

8 Nov
Our Super Saturday went really well yesterday. We made some really fun projects including scrabble tile pendants, adjustable watches, scalloped wooden frames, giant family ruler boards, some cute tiles with vinyl sayings and long magnet boards. I will put some pictures up tomorrow.
 {Bienvenue — see link below}
I had been fighting off being sick all week — well today I crashed and since I’m sick and in the house, I started thinking about projects and burlap…
I love the simplicity of this flower arrangement from Snippet & Ink:
This is so simple and cute, burlap coat hanger tutorial from Bienvenue:
Another simple, but striking arrangement by Fern Creek Cottage, I love the stenciled initial!
I am in love with burlap RUFFLES — so delicious! This chalkboard from Bittersweet is amazing:
Wouldn’t a slipcovered ottomon with ruffles be wonderful? From Ballard Designs:
I saw this bag and imagined it in burlap – hmmmm, so cute! From Blue Moss on etsy:
This market tote is amazing at Urban Farmhouse:
And I think this burlap tablecloth would be to-die-for on my Thanksgiving table {Velvet & Linen}:
This Anthropologie jacket really reminds me of burlap — I love the shape and layers:
And maybe someday I might be brave enough to wallpaper my room in burlaplike Kara’s Cottage has:
or this wall at Anthrooplogie:
what a wonderful little reading nook over at The Lettered Cottage!
Thanks for sharing my Burlap Daydream!
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
