Spring Pillows~It's All In The Details

I'm so happy that Spring is finally here!  
I have been doing a bit of Spring transitioning 
in the Kitchen and Hearth Room.  
I was browsing through the Ballard catalog 
a few weeks ago and I spied 
these adorable floral pillows.  
What made me look twice was the 
edge treatment on the pillows.  
They reminded me of the 
pillows that I saw at Nell Hill's.
These were the pillows at Nell Hill's...  
I love going there but...
their pillow covers are expensive...
And here are the Ballard pillows...  
Not as many pleats but still adorable 
AND they were only $33.00 with my discount. 
They shipped them really fast too!
Sooooooo, on my to do list 
was making envelope pillows out of 
the fabric that I had left over 
from the chair and ottoman that I had recovered.  
It didn't take that long to make them 
but it always seems like such a hassle 
to get the sewing machine out etc...  
In my next house I am determined 
to have a room where I can keep ongoing projects 
out and be able to close the door.  
Oh wait...  
Is that a Craft Room?  
YES, I want a Craft Room!  
Miss Beaux and I went to Target 
on Saturday to get her a few things 
before she headed back to school.  
We have a Target Ritual...  
First you get a Starbucks 
and then you cruise EVERY aisle.  
As we were cruising, 
I saw these Initial pillow covers.  
Of course they didn't have an "R" 
so we kept walking and sure enough 
we saw more of them displayed 
on another endcap.  
They had an "R" and in the right color!  
 And look at the fabric on the back!  
My Pottery Barn throw that I ordered 
after Christmas coordinates as well.  
I have washed this on gentle a few times 
and just hung it dry 
and it comes out just as soft as when I first got it.  
I bought a potted Hydrangea at Costco 
this weekend for my olive bucket.  
I buy one every year 
and keep it in the house for a while 
before I plant it outside.  
I had it by the French Doors 
that go out to the deck.  
I just put it here for the pictures...  
I caught someone with four paws 
chewing on the leaves 
so now I have to find a place up high 
where puppies can't get to it!  
All of the pillow fabrics 
go so well with the rug...  
We spend a lot of time in this room, 
I mean a LOT of time...  
So it makes me happy 
when I am surrounded by 
pretty colors and patterns.  
Now when we pull the ottoman up 
to the sectional to put our feet up 
the patterns all make sense together!  
I don't know why I put off 
making the Buffalo Checked pillows!  
I think I am going to make a few more 
while I have everything is out!  
Don't forget about the Spring Giveaway 
from Nana's Bungalow!

I am a sucker for pillows and have SOOOO many it is crazy! I wish I had known about pillow covers a long time ago, I wouldn't have so many to store! Love your pillows and the ottoman! Happy Spring! I have to go to Costco now and get a hydrangea!!!

Julie said...

I love your mix of pillow patterns! That throw is really nice, too. Our dog tends to chew on furniture rather than plant leaves :(

All of your pillows look beautiful!! I love the birdy too....he just looks like spring on a pillow :^)
I don't have a craft room, but I do have a place for my machine to be open all the time. It is wonderful because I can sew any time I have 15 minutes free.
Blessings to you and happy Easter!

Your ottoman definitely coordinates well with those pillows and the soft blue coloured ones look fantastic as well!

Good morning Cindy~
Your pillow are so soft and so pretty. I have a question ~ Did you recover your ottoman ??
If so was it difficult ~ I have an ottoman very similar in size to yours and would love to recover it.
Thank you
