Outside the FRAME!

You know those are heading to bed and there's a pile of crafty things sitting on the kitchen table?  You take a look and think, "I could do something with those leftovers!"
(it's the kitchen table over here after all, right?)

So you grab the burlap pieces, a few twigs, pine cones, an odd frame that has NEVER been used in OVER 20 years and you make something.

I leaned the frame up here, against the dining room window.  The placement was not inspirational at all.  So it may move.

But for now, it adds to the earthy simplicity of the Christmas decorations that are slowly taking over my home!

Thanks for coming over tonight!



  1. Sooooo cute! Burlap and sticks are just a few of my favorite things! I may have to hire you to do my projects. I need a holiday. :)


  2. Oh Kolein!!! THAT is genius! I love that and how beautiful!

  3. You are on a roll my friend. You are so catching Donna's junky vibes.

    I got a tree and free branches tonight and thought of you :)

  4. What can't you do with twigs? Seriously?!

    Love that little burlap tree!

    Happy weekend to you!

  5. I love that burlap tree. That is one of the cutest ideas I have seen. Love!!!

  6. "NOT inspirational,at all" You say? Huh, if that isn't inspirational then what? What,Kolein?

    You're so dern crafty...
    PuH-Lease. You were just headed to bed...
    girl! I don't know how you come up with cute stuff you do, seriously. You crack me up.

    I need inspiration to get out of bed some days... you make me laugh.

  7. Love the burlap! Never seen anything like it.. so creative! Thanks for sharing a brilliant idea!

  8. I'm afraid if I got crafty with my pile of stuff, I'd need a lot more than a window sill to prop it up against. :) Love it!

  9. It takes a very creative soul to see all that cuteness in a random pile of things sitting around.
    I need to send you some photos of random piles and let your imagination soar.

  10. Geez Girl, you are so crafty. I love the burlap and twigs. I still can't get over the cooking vanilla. I want to try that one too. Must find cool bottles first... Hope you are having a great night.

  11. Nicely 'thrown' together! I don't think I would have seen a tree in those scraps. I was thinking of you as I went out in my yard this weekend cutting boughs from our pine trees. Wreaths and garland for free! Yay!

  12. Leftover craft bits are the best, they bring to true creative out in you. Your earthy and natural Christmas is looking really good.

  13. Very pretty! Love the cones :)


What you say means so much
