pillow update

IMG_1701

i know i should be doing a post on fall decorating, but i just can’t.  really.  i can’t.  not when it is literally the most beautiful time of year here on the central coast.  fall is our summer.  mid 80’s every day, light breezes… not fallish at all!

but.  that didn’t stop me from redecorating!  my pillows really needed an update.  like i-had-the-same-ones-for-the-last-5-years kind of need to update.

so update i did!  i have slowly been collecting pillows here and there for the last few months, and then i took a couple days off work and made a bunch – it was so fun!

i made both of these pillows.  super basic with a zipper on the bottom.

i got this turquoise fabric a couple years ago from walmart!  i’ve been sitting on it for just the perfect project.

this turquoise pillow is from target and the most fabulous pillow in all of the land was made by paisley sprouts.

look at the stitching!  it is amazing!  i want 100 of these pillows.

i got this granny square pillow at our holiday stitch market, and made the other pillow.

isn’t the gold polka dot burlap so much fun?

i’ve been hoarding this yellow trim for a bit and finally found a great use for it.  only bummer was that i had to hand stitch it on.

these alphabet pillows migrated from the playroom.  i’m hoping to replace them soon with black & white awning stripe pillows (i need one more day!).

this itty bitty pillow may just be my favorite.  lily thinks it stands for ” silas + lily” ;)

it was super easy, made with thick yarn for a bigger impact than embroidery floss.

    IT’S JUST SO COLORFUL! I LOVE IT! AND THE FRONT DOOR IS MY FAVORITE. I WANTED A DOOR LIKE THAT SO BAD WHEN WE BUILT OUR HOUSE BUT IT DIDN’T HAPPEN! I’LL GET ME ONE, ONE DAY! EVERYTHING LOOKS GREAT!

    How are all those terrariums on your coffee table doing? Mine are all dead. I planted cacti and I think I over watered them. oops. May need to get some more ferny type plants next time. Your pillows look great, love all the patterns and colors!

    I love how you have a neutral couch and back ground so you can spruce up your space and have fun with different themed and colored pillows. If you are looking for more great pillows at a reasonable price check out Home Goods who partners with TJ Maxx. I have found some great deals in this wonderful store.
