Burlap provides a great caramel color and adds texture to any room.  Here are just a few of many ideas for your home.  Maybe you wont want to snuggle up on the pillow, but it definitely adds an awesome look.


Vintage Maps

Vintage maps are fun and affordable decorating ideas.  I recently found a map of the Pacific Ocean that has “Caroline Islands” (my name) written in the middle.  It also shows where my grandfather was stationed in WWII.  This is definitely going to be art for my new home.  I’m searching for the perfect frame, but hope it has the impact these maps have!

Weigh the Options

I recently purchased an adorable teal kitchen scale from an antique store.  As of now, it is sitting on my kitchen shelf waiting for a purpose, so I decided to explore some options and found these brilliant ideas!

The practical option – eggs, fruit, vegetables.

The artistic option – a fresh flower from the garden.

Playful option – sweet treats for a party


Wake Up Smiling

Why not add a bit of cheer to your morning wake up call?  Here are some amazingly adorable alarm clocks that I would love to wake up to!  In fact, I actually own the first one.  It wakes me up with light instead of sound – so peaceful.

Affordable Ottoman

Ottomans are not the cheapest piece of furniture out there, so why not try out a cheap alternative.  Buy a coffee table with unique legs, add a big piece of foam, and pick out amazing fabric to place on top as though you are covering a chair seat.  Such a perfect option when you are looking to find the fabric that fits!
