Pallet and Burlap Christmas Sign

A bunch of fantastic bloggers and I are getting our Burlap on today! Just how many ways can you re-invent burlap into a Christmas craft, anyway? Well, it turns out, at least 6.

Vintage Octagon Mirror

Look at this little beauty! Once again, I found this vintage octagon mirror, in a stack of old musty frames, and dusty mirrors, at the thrift store. Have I mentioned how much I love the thrift store? She had me at octagon. Didn’t hurt that it was only $10. Home with me, she came. Like […]

Headboards and Monsters.

I know now why I need a headboard. I am on week 3 of waking in the middle of the night to find my pillow slowly slipping down in-between the wall and mattress. Maybe the monster under the bed really does exist, and he wants to eat my pillow?? Anyway, time to get ours mounted… […]

Front Door Landing Strip

We need a landing strip. You know those handy little spots you throw your keys and mail down when you come home after a long day? It has to keep you organized. It’s the worst when you’re running late and have NO IDEA where your keys are! Everybody’s been there right? So, if we can […]
