Love of Pillows

Jana and I started this last fall making pillows for the store. Burlap is really in right now and we even used coffee bean bags. "Nest" is one of our favorite words, but we also do several others. As soon as Jana gets back from Atlanta we'll be stocking the store with them (get ready Jana!). I don't know about you, but I love pillows on the couch, in chairs and tucked here and there. They just add something!

I just couldn't pass up this pillow on a recent shopping trip. I know Jana and I could of made it ourselves, but by the time we acquired all the stamps for stenciling, etc., well, lets just say it probably wouldn't get done.....

I have been collecting little handmade pillows for some time now and I especially like heart shapes and ones made from old quilts. So I am always on the look out.

Pillows are one of the best home acccessories - instant gratification and easy installation! Your collection is charming.

I love burlap and am having a table runner made of burlap with our initials on each end.

Happy Sunday!

I have always loved pillows. My poor husband feels smothered by them as I keep piling them on. In fact, I made 2 new pillows for our bed this Sunday that are more like floor pillows...just love having big fluff to lounge upon. Love your pillows. And you are very right..burlap is SO in right now. I plan to make one too. :)

You are so will have to be my guest blogger more often.
We have been ordering like crazy and still have one more day.
Looking forward to making more pillows.

I love pillows; to buy, to cuddle up on, to make. They make me happy somehow! I have an idea for one I want to make using my stash of antique pearl buttons when I can go get the fabric for it.
