Drop Cloth Pillow Case Knockoff

By |August 5th, 2011|

After discovering the Pinterest Challenge earlier this week, my mind immediately jumped to the beautiful grain sack pillows I’ve been seeing splashed all over the blogoshpere.  The warmth and texture they add to a room is absolutely delightful.  Another bonus (at least in my circus-like household) is that the material used is sturdy enough to hold up to a three-year-old and two large dogs, but still offers beauty and sophistication.

But as much as I like the look of burlap, I’ve found that using painters drop cloths makes for a much cuddlier pillow, as they’re a heckofa lot softer while still providing the wonderfully uneven, grainy texture of burlap.  And best of all, they’re available for dirt cheap at any home improvement store like Lowe’s or Home Depot.


Pinterest Challenge: Summer 2011 Edition

You may have noticed I’m now on Pinterest, and I’m totally addicted.  I can’t stop pinning things!  I find myself drawn to Pinterest a lot more than the other social media because by nature, Pinterest is a lot more personal.  When I make a friend on Pinterest, I’m not just looking at pictures of them smiling at the camera; I’m seeing all kinds of things that inspire them.  It’s a whole new level of knowing someone, and it’s wonderful.  You can check my Pinterest boards out here – I’d love to see you there!

I first read about the Pinterest Challenge while browsing around The Lettered Cottage, and was instantly curious.  Plus, it was nice knowing there are others out there (like me) who can barely pull themselves away from the computer because they’re too busy pinning everything in sight.

Once I watched this hilarious video (I was giggling enough to make my husband walk in and ask what I was doing), I was hooked.  ^_^  I mean c’mon, how cute are they?  And by they I mean these girls:

Sherry, Katie, Emily, and Lana.  And yes, their blogs are all totally adorable and fun, so go check them out. […]
