Don't just sit there like a sack of potatoes....

Get up and decorate!!!!! With BURLAP. Yes, burlap as in potato sacks.

Lately, burlap is showing up in places you wouldn't expect. This durable FABRIC can be used for many different applications and can add charm and personality to a causal home.

Not sure if burlap is for you? Start small, wrap a clear glass cylinder vase with a strip of burlap, like the picture above. The rough texture of burlap juxtapose to the modern smooth shape of the vase is an eye catching affect.


I love these place mats! These were handmade - to get instructions visit pickles and cheese blog page!

Or how about a throw pillow or two or three....

a table runner is a good place to start with decorating with burlap.

Lampshades are a great place for this versatile fabric.

Bet you never thought of using it as part of your bed linens.

The casual dining room above is beautifully decorated and the burlap roman blinds look great.

Hmmm, now that I'm done with this post, I think I'll grab a baked potato with butter, sour cream and chives.

I want to wish EVERYONE A Happy Thanksgiving!
