Pillow Talk

About a month ago I noticed that the pillows on my couch and love seat seemed to be talking to me.

“Dress me up for Christmas, please!”

That was all it took and I started pulling vintage items from my stash. Then a quick trip to Wal-mart for some burlap. Found a few items there to help dress them up.

After a few hours of racking the brain as to what to do- this is what I came up with.

Rustic meets vintage

no Christmas pillow collection would be complete without at least one bird. I made the yo-yo’s, but the buttons are vintage. The crochet lace once belonged to my mother

To create the snowflake I used old laces and buttons. The center decoration is just something I had picked up a year ago at the Star Mill. I didn’t know what I would do with it. Just thought it was kindof funky!

Wool and fabric flowers. The center of the black twisted flower was another of moms earrings.

very nice mom, but now no one can use those pillows to take a nap, unless they want to wake up with a funky imprint in their face.
