this weekend’s theme

~ burlap ~

It’s itchy to the touch. It’s difficult to wash. What’s to love about the stuff? Plenty. 🙂

The material is wonderfully organic with the most amazing texture, and works so well with rustic and upscale interiors.

I just know the following images will have you snipping away at some burlap scraps in no time!

All photos are linked to Pinterest.

aren’t these coasters darling?

the flowers dress this plain lampshade right up!

LOVE the bold graphics in black. I’ll take the black box too please.

how cute would these be as mini pin cushions?

oh my. i just love the juxtaposition of the organic with the frilly. the bright white ruffle is truly the icing on the cake here.

bows! and crumply. love it.

aren’t the ivory bows the perfect finishing touch to the antique white letters?

and let’s also add a pallet wood background to the mix… swoon!!

 this little number couldn’t decide whether to go to the local yokel barn dance or a wedding, so she dressed up for both! isn’t this awesome? i want my wing chairs to resemble this! all scrappy like to the max.

 the sign reads right. you do need this. ask me how i know.


My friend Denisie whipped up this little sweetheart for me.

And  lucky for you, the pattern’s avail to purchase if you so desire! Click HERE if interested.

And don’t hate me because I have this pillow but I do. I’ve featured it many times on FJI. It was a gift from Missy over at The Little Green Bean.  Missy is infamous for all of her burlap creations she sells in her Etsy shop.

i don’t exactly know what this is, but i don’t care. i want it! wouldn’t this be a wild curtain, quilt cover, lampshade, shower curtain, anything?

i’m not much of a purse person but i would proudly tote this around! funky. 🙂


coolest headboard ever. i think i may have just inspired myself towards a new bedroom makeover…

oh how cool. imagine these also on your Christmas tree!

Was I right? Are you convinced you can no longer live without burlap?

  1. LOVE all your burlap choices and always love the birdies. Ya know I’m 3 hours ahead of you with the time. I’ve been without power for a while now and my eyes seem to be playing tricks on me…Thanks for hosting a fabulously fun party.

  2. Hahaha I can tell those who read the post and those don’t. For the record, I changed the link up in reverse in case you think you’re going crazy! Let me know if you like/hate/don’t care either way about it. I’m listening. 🙂

    I just liked the idea of everyone being #1 at some point… Nester tried it and I thought it was cool. 🙂


  3. BURLAP LOVE. all the way! You hooked me in, Donna. While I still don’t get the chippy wood and all that rust, I do love or should say, fell in love with the rustic touch of burlap! LOVE THE CHAIR! And that wild curtain thing! Oh my gosh….swoon all over the place. Can one do that? Love all the lamps and well, just about everything you posted!

    And Denise’s birdies are THE BEST!!!!


  4. Oh, I tried to get my post on burlap ready..just couldn’t get it together.:(

    Come over and comment for a chance at a cool Danish enamel house sign…really nice.

  5. Hi Donna I’m linking up. I love burlap and want to use it on everything. I’m obsessive like that LOL. Thanks for hosting and feeding my obsession. I love the burlap mixed up chair OMG. Love the reverse order although I almost posted the same thing twice …thought I had messed up linking up. Have a great weekend.

  6. Donna, your blog is such a haven of fun and comfort. Don’t know why I haven’t left a note telling you before. When life is just too crazy I fix myself a cup of tea and love visiting to see what adventures you’re having.

    Not sure about the decorating book world, but I hear in the romance book world, sometimes those contracts can take a while…:)

  7. Hey Donna, I have had that burplap hanging shade in my files for a long time now but didn’t know who it belonged to. I don’t think it is storiesfromatoz. When you click on that link it takes you to the shades she did for her kitchen, totally different. It seems everyone is copying her link for that shade but it doesn’t match up. Any ideas who’s it really is? I would love to use it for an inspiration I am doing but want to give the right credit.

  8. I love the burlap theme…although I don’t have anything made up of burlap at this time I use it a lot for in my photos for my designs. It makes a great back drop and adds great texture to the photos.

    Thanks for hosting this fun party…I love looking at all of the awesome links.

  9. Thanks for the great fun! I love being challenged to create new projects, and these have been fun! It’s great that you keep me cleaning out my attic looking for supplies! 🙂

  10. I love the look of burlap, but I think I am doing something wrong–like when I cut burlap, it makes a huge mess! And its so rough rough rough! How can you sit on it or even use as a pillow? Is it just for deco only maybe? Can you wash it…maybe that makes it softer? Oh help me! I bought 10 yards of it when it was on sale, but I just can’t get past it’s flaws….

  11. I love the crumply shade and the headboard. I always appreciated the texture of burlap but only used it for upholstery. But this post has opened my eyes to so many more possibilities. Thanks so much!

  12. UPDATE: Your eyes are not playing tricks on you. I started the linkups to go up in the reverse order for something new to try. It wasn’t working out, way too much confusion. So, I changed it back.

    This party is officially deemed out of control. Wow… check out all those linkups!

    Thanks so much everyone. You make this party what it is.
