Pretty Pillows...

I love pretty pillows in all shapes and sizes and I thought it would be fun to show you the pretty pillows I currently have on my bed.

This one is a butterfly shaped pillow made of chenille in a few of my favorite colors of white, pink, yellow and blue. This was so original that I just couldn't pass it up.

A small pillow made from yellow & rose chintz handkerchiefs.

Of course, I have to have a pillow with my favorite Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Fabric.

This last one is just a basic white crocheted pillow that I added a vintage handkerchief to, just using safety pins on each corner. When I find myself tiring of the blue, I can easily switch it out to a different color.

What lovely things to give me sweet dreams at night !!

Very pretty pillows! I love pillows too. My Mom teases me whenever she visits that pretty soon I wont have room for a bed in my bedroom I have so many throw pillows! Actually, I have 4 on my bed, and 4 more scattered around the room. I love pillows, and I lovvvve the little butterfly pillow. It is very original!

Lovely pillows, the one I adore is the one with the roses! I have all my pillow cases made out of her fabric, Rosalie. In fact I am making 4 more! Beautiful work, thanks for sharing!

I loooooove my pillows too. I think the last pillow you did by adding the handkerchief, was a wonderful idea, it looks gorgeous. In fact I think I'm going to give it a try myself. - Thanks so much!

Enjoy your day-

Your pillows look soft and lovely. I especially like the little hankie pillow and the pillow with the hankie attached. I've never seen that before.
