And here we are... the crowning project of Nanny's visit! What a perfect slam-bang finish to a wonderful time!
Mom was really feeling the need for some new pillows out of one of her favorite fabric lines, Ava Rose. A little change every once-in-awhile is good for you! SOOO....
What can we say? We got sewing. Ahh... perfect. Just what the doctor ordered.
Remember the quilt? And now, everyone is probably wanting a little more background on "everything"... okay, we'll let you in on a few little secrets.
::the "mr. and mrs." pillowcases are vintage. We thought a little simpleness would be so pretty. Too much pattern is too much of a good thing!
::the floral pillow (on the left, second row) is actually a tablecloth. Faded and just right. (We were really amazed at how the faded one matched the Ava Rose fabric so perfectly!)
::you've probably already guessed... the lace on the front, long pillow is vintage too! Couldn't resist.
::the big pillow (right in front of the mr. and mrs. ones) is patched just like one of our brooke bags! We added a couple lace pieces to it too!
::last, but not least the velvet. Actually, a curtain from Target (Shabby Chic line). Mom had such a remarkable idea to buy it! We added it to the patched pillow, the front, long pillow, and the one on the right is COMPLETELY velvet. Ruched (or gathered, right Nan?) all up perfectly. Personally, that almost seems like the crowning point of all the gorgeous pillows!
