Pillow Parade


Today I am also joining Kari & Kijsa's Pillow Parade!

To see more of the Pillow Parade or to participate, be sure to stop by there site! Thank you Kari & Kijsa for hosting.


I only found out about this late last night and did not have time to take photos. I had this photo in the archives. And it has to be one of my favorite decorative pillows. I bought it at Civil La Tea in Gettysburg, PA about 13 or 14 years ago. Someone made it to sell in their gift shop/boutique section. I fell in love with the pillow as soon as I saw it. I know it would be easy to make. I have made tons of pillows, but a girl can treat herself to something special can't she? :-) My mom mad the pillow that is underneath. I have a runner around here somewhere that matches.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment.

I hope that you go byKari & Kijsa's to see the rest of the Pillow Parade!

Hugs,
Melissa

I can see why you wanted to buy this one; it's so creative! (I had a pair of gloves like that for Easter.)

Oh that pillow is gorgeous! So different. I love the doily and glove. I may have to use that idea sometime...I am lovin' it! The one your mama made goes perfectly with it too. Love your chair too! I have tons of pillows too. I wish I'd known about this pillow parade sooner...that's a fun idea for a post!
Big Hug,

Sometimes you just have to buy a pillow someone else has made. :)

Thanks for sharing!

Not only is it a brilliant pillow I think where you have it really shows it off and compliments the chair.

What a pretty way to display some vintage treasures ~ wouldn't this be a fun thing to do with Grandma's doilies and gloves? Hmm... you've got my creative wheels turning now!
