Spring Pillows that are SEW Pretty!





These pretty Spring inspired pillow ideas 
are from Better Homes and Gardens.

Yes, I am still having camera issues,
but wanted to share something
with you anyway.

I hope they brighten your day.

Enjoy!






Aren't these colorful tulip pillows
just too darn cute?!







The next pillow is "slipcovered"
with linen napkins.








This stylish tweedy pillow reminds
me of a pink Chanel suit!








Is your name Madison?






These last two pillows reminded me
of one of my favorite blogs,
Cozy Little House.


I think this colorful little yoyo pillow
would look at home anywhere in
Brenda's "cozy little house!





Years ago, in the 70's, I had a box
full of old yoyos and cut circles
given to me my my mother.

She had just moved out of her
home and into a mobile home and
just didn't have room to store
extra boxes of "old stuff".

(She was in her mid 60's and
lived to be 97 years old.)


Anyway, they were made out of old
dresses in small prints and calicos.
They were from the 1920's and I
believe she and her sister made them.

Well since I was in my 20's I just
didn't understand their value...
and so after we moved a few times
I was "convinced" to give them up them.

I am not even sure what
really ever happened to them.
Were they tossed or given away?


Such remorse... and guilt!!!

Oh, those pillows are too cute. I want to say thank you for remembering my friend Jan in your prayers and I've added your son-in-law and his father both to my prayer list. Thank you again!

You're right! They would go perfect here! I have one yo-yo pillow. Don't fret over the bygone yo-yos. We all do stuff like that and kick ourselves a million times over it.

Cute pillows...I have a bunch of yo-yo's that I did a dozen or so years ago, maybe enough to make a pillow cover.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I found my blue stemmed glasses at Goodwill. I see them occasionally so will look for a few for you. I could kick myself for not picking up some green ones awhile back.
