.... and another home re-fashion for today
I made the two top pillows from vintage linens. First I embroidered monograms on them. My fave is the first one, the white-on-white. I am loving white on white and tone-on-tone embroideries. I picked out the monogram from a book or something, scanned it, blew it up, traced it onto the linen, and away I went. The other one I also got from a book. It's not my monogram (it's an "A", I think) but I liked it and used it. I use all letters in my embroidery. Certain letters just lend themselves to elegant embroidered linens, I think.
And speaking of elegant: There it nothing like Mommy's bed, full of cushy embroidered pillows, for my Precious Princess Splat Pun'kin to take her required feline beauty rest in high style on a hot afternoon after eating her kitty lunch from one of mommy's vintage Blue Willow saucers. Yes, that is my "baby"......
