Pink Saturday-Pink House Pillow

Welcome again to Pink Saturday. Don't you enjoy getting to know so many neighbors through Pink Saturday! Beverly started it all here@ http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/
She has changed Pinkness as we now know it! Big smile. My hubby actually pulls over now for me to take a picture for Pink Saturdays! He knows all about it!
Way Below I posted a lovely site that has the most adorable house pillows.
Each one is decorated differently with different fabrics, laces, buttons and trims. This is right up my alley, I love to sew pillows and embellish them with little bits and pieces of trims from my sewing stash!

Don't you love cute little buttons? I adore buttons and have been known to throw clothing away after I cut the cute buttons off of the top or baby outfit. Entire projects can be thought up by just looking at one adorable button!

Here is my version of the pillow. Handmade lace adorns the window. I bought this lace at an antique store in Boerne Texas when we visited for my son's wedding last year. Below the window, is floral fabric for a window box finished off with rick rack. At the bottom of the pillow is pink daisy trim which I'm so disappointed you can hardly see! And be sure to notice the lace chimney at the top of the roof.

Below is the cute pillow that I started getting ideas from. This gal has the Keutest blog! I love red anyhoo.
Be sure to see all the house pillows (Maisonnettes), you will surely get inspired! Woohoo!
thanks for dropping by!

Love that pillow, Debbie! That's the look we have in Joy's room and I just love it! How sweet that your hubby will pull over for your "pink" pics! :)

Have a great Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday! I so enjoyed seeing your pillow creations--I am a button lover, too! I especially love really vintage, intricate ones.

Hope you're having a great summer! Dana

Oh Debbie! How sweet are these house pillows. That would be a wonderful idea for the girls for their homes for Christmas. I could do them fairly quickly, and it would be just for them. THanks for the wonderful idea. Love this Pink post. Just beautiful! Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you visit. Country Hugs, Sherry

Hi Debbie! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your pillow! But oh no!.. You have found me ANOTHER project I just HAVE to try! Can I squeeze it in?.. Well, I'll just HAVE to! Just food for thought, but with Fall and Halloween just ahead, this might make a cute Haunted House pillow too! What do you think? Happy Pink Saturday, and hope you have a wonderfully pink week! ~tina

Great pillows! I love to sew and make pretty accessories for my home, and pillows are a favorite. I want to make one like Rachel Ashwell's Home Sweet Home, since I can't fine one...decided to make my own, just as soon as I practice my embroidery a little more! Happy Pink Saturday to you!

Your pillow is just adorable but the thing I just "luv" on it is the bird button. How cute is that?
I'm a sucker for a bird on anything.

My husband has gotten to the point where he looks for blog potential without my even asking. Sounds like we both have sweet husbands.

I love that little pillow! I wonder if pillows like that would make cute wedding favors, in the shape of our new house (my fiance and I just bought a yellow house and I am picturing the pillows already). We are trying to find nice thank-you favors for the friends in our wedding party, and between http://www.gatheringguide.com/ec/party_favors_decorations.html and the cute ideas on your blog, I think we may have found it! Thank you!!
