Paper Bag Floor Covering ~ I saw this technique for a floor covering in a friend's home the other night ~~ it is gorgeous and MUCH more durable than you might think. . . hers had been down for years and it still looked GREAT. Hers looked like flagstone by using larger pieces and crumpling then straightening them before they are laid.
Suitcase beds are really cute, my problem would be finding a good place for it. Especially in a smaller house/apartment, you really can't have a bunch of things like this just lying around. Maybe if one was on top of a bookshelf or cabinet or fridge as decoration and elevated cat bed? I don't know.
