Tatertots and Jello

I have since met Jen from Tatertots & Jello and she couldn’t be any more humble.  She is one of the sweetest gals I’ve ever met and I’m so glad we’ve become friends.  She has also changed her entire home since the time of this post. She’s amazing!

Oh My Stars! Apparently I’m not the only one in love with burlap. Apparently I AM the only one who hasn’t sewn anything with it………BECAUSE I DON”T SEW! But if I did, I would make this……..even if I don’t have a round table…..but I do have a chair with this exact fabric!!! I’m cool, I’m cool, I’m cool. another angle
