.... 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"......

The pillows are beautiful, and the kitty on the bed looks right at home. I think your blog is very nice, I love the polka dot and flower border.

Hosanna,
Your pillows came out so pretty, and the sewing machine drawer was a good idea. Cute little feet you put on it.

Simply lovely! I can't wait for the Etsy shop!! What's up with that? You given the idea up?

Hosanna said...

No, I haven't given up, I just got discouraged about my shop name being taken by someone else. I am trying to think up another name for it, take photos, and set it up... before the Holidays, at least, is my goal....
