Burlap Pillow Wrap DIY (No SEW!)

I'm actually ashamed to post steps for this "project". I had a bunch of large square scraps of burlap and some pillows I was tired of looking at so i decided to do a little wardrobe change on them. As I scrolled through my fave bloggers' posts this morning, admiring the sewing projects a lightbulb went off. Maybe I could just giftwrap and pin the pillows? It's not as if anyone ever sits on this bench and snuggles up with the pillows.

So that's what I did this morning, snapping pics all the way (had to find another excuse to play with the new cam!).

Here's what I did, the final results, and few more random pics from around the house this morning. Make sure to check out my goatmilk soap pics. The soap is made by my mom's friend, who also sells fresh eggs and other farm fresh goodies. I fell in love with the look of the soaps. The one pictured is cucumber. Pretty and functional!

So there it is. This would be best for pillows in a no-traffic area that are for looks only. It's a fun easy way to change up the look of a seating area. Why didn't I think of this sooner?

Here are the random shots...

Have a great day friends!

A few more shots around the house...

We're all kids at heart right? And what do kids want to do with their new toys? PLAY!

Our holiday was pure madness this year, fun but hectic. This evening has been my first chance to really be alone with my thoughts and new "stuff" from Santa. Here are some of the best shots with the new camera. Just stuff around the house that I know you'll like. I could've taken pictures of the dirty dishes or black lab hair tumbleweeds on the floor but I think that would only disgust you.

I'll clean house later...promise.

Mad that this one came out fuzzy...

Thanks for looking!

I got a new camera for Christmas! I can finally keep up with you guys. : D

It was time to bring out the big guns and stop posting such shameful camera phone quility pics, or so my dad (camera expert of the family) told me. So glad he gave me exactly what he knew I needed.

I recieved a canon rebel XT. I like it so far! Here are a few snapshots from around the house today...

In the bathroom...
I created a little towel shelf area this morning. I can't stand a plain room and my bathroom was pretty much empty and neglected. This adds a little chippy personality and function I think.

And some others of the kids and the yard...

I hope you all had a restful and memorable holiday break. I sure did, and with the wonderful pictures my new camera allows me to capture I can remember every wonderful detail forever!
