10 Fabulous Burlap Projects

10 Fabulous Burlap Projects
If your home doesn't have a burlap item or two, I feel sorry for you. Why? Because burlap is earthy and full of texture and so inexpensive it's almost sinful! It adds such appeal and warmth to a space! Plus it's so easy to craft with burlap and make fabulous accessories for your home! I wonder what our great-grandmothers would think about our obsession with burlap...I can hear them scoffing, "Decorating with burlap? Why on earth would you want to do that dearie?" Because...dear grannies...the possibilities are endless...and in this post I'm setting out to prove that. I pulled together a few of my favorite projects that use burlap. It's wonderful for seasonal decorating, as well as everyday projects.

Stress-free Simple Fall Decorating

My home was filled with the smells of Fall this weekend! Even though it was 90 degrees outside, I made my  White Bean Chicken Chili and Gingerbread (Pumpkin) Muffins . Comfort food! It was so good and the smells infused our home in much the same way that decorating makes a big impact. I used to spend days decorating for every holiday. I'd have Mr DIY haul all the related boxes down from the attic, and while the kids were at school, I'd sort and purge and dust and decorate to my heart's content...until the whole house was transformed. But that has all changed.

Happy Labor Day! I hope you're enjoying the long weekend with your family, however you choose to spend it. We are planning to have some friends over and grill. I was really hoping we could have a cookout on our outdoor fire pit, but it has been too hot and humid here! Please fall...hurry up! I wasn't really sure what to call today's post. It's not really a canvas...it's not really a poster. It is a wall hanging.

It's Friday! The beginning of a long weekend! Lots to be thankful for!! I hope you don't mind, but today on the blog it's 'leftover' day. Remember when you were little and it was leftover night? Your mom would pull out all the leftovers from the fridge and make a meal with it. You might have a little meatloaf with a piece of pizza and some chicken noodle soup. It didn't really go together, but it satisfied. Today I'm sharing a few leftovers with you,
