Adding some cottage charm to the Family Room

Hi there Lovelies,  I have a quick little new post for you this weekend. I purchased this little grain sack this summer. I wasn't sure on how to decorate with it at first. But this weekend I got to it...
 


 I ended up just stuffing it with pillow fluff  and I added a string to dress it up a little.
  
I think it looks pretty good in between the fireplace and chair.
  Some of you may know that my Mom is here visiting from Germany, and she has been sewing me a bunch of new pillows and table runners. I will post about that later but here is a sneak peak of one of the pillows she made for me.
 
 I feel like I added some cottage charm to the Family room with the grain sack and burlap touches!!!

 Well this pretty plate on my fireplace is not exactly "Cottage Style" but I love it all the same !!!! Got it in Spain last year and showing it off!!
Do you want to see how I used another grain sack in my home?

  5. I like your grain sack with the little cow on it! That's so cute tied up like a sack. Your mom is very talented to be able to make that cute pillow with the buttons on it. I bet you're enjoying her time with you since she lives so far away.
