Mosaic Monday

I loved flipping through the latest Pottery Barn catalog and seeing all of the touches of rope in their decorating.  The nautical rope accents are the hot trend right now.. this was certainly evident at the January Merchandise Mart show in Atlanta. 
Pottery Barn.. simple rope strips stuffed in clear jars
Pottery Barn.. love how the rope is attached to the glass cloche.
Pottery Barn.. notice the picture frame in the back with rope around it.
 You name it and it had some jute or sisal rope around it! Furniture, Chandeliers, even animals (not real of course).  I've seen many of these colorful rope creatures at Anthropologie and on Etsy.  One of my favorite sites, Honestly...WTF? does a fantastic tutorial on how to make one of these cutie pies.
Nothing screams Summer more to me than this gorgeous sailor rope bracelet from Aria Nero.

Time to get the glue gun out and start wrapping....
One of my favorite items for sale at Gillyweed are these whimsical Monkey Fists. At $15 each they make a great door stop and/or a serious paperweight.

Need more inspiration??  I found these wonderful images on Pinterest and Google that will get your creative juices flowing!  This mosaic has been linked up to Mosaic Monday at Little Red House.  Happy Monday!



  1. I've seen flowerpots covered with rope but your photos show that anything goes!

  2. What fun! Buy more rope! Lovely pinspiration, too!

  3. These are all so neat and so creative. i do not use rope much, jute twine is about it, but these are sure fascinating...hmmm, I may have just gotten some great ideas, and do you not just love Pottery Barn~

  4. Wow I love Pottery Barn too. Gives me an idea of how to use my left over yard. I like your taste.
