Shabby Country Pillows & Sachets

There is nothing like the feel of a well-worn quilt for snuggling up when there is a chill in the air. It was 49 degrees yesterday morning about daybreak - this inspired me to run for cover, literally! LOL! I found this wonderful old quilt remnant in my stash and made these super soft comfy pillows and a couple sachets. Someone else had already cut a corner off of it, so it was easy for me to cut it! I made some for me and some for the shop.

Thanks for stopping by and hope y'all have a fab day!

Featured Artist - What White Rabbit...

...I am in love with this quirky little rabbit. He lives in this limited edition print made from an encaustic painting that won the “best of show” in a California juried exhibition. The artist behind the art is Julia Heatherwick of Breaking Ground Studio.

And what is encaustic??? I surely did not know before I purchased this beautiful piece of art...encaustic is a painting method where color-pigmented beeswax is melted, applied to a surface and reheated to fuse the paint into a smooth or textured finish. The word encaustic comes from the Greek language and means 'to burn in', which refers to the process of fusing the paint. Sounds like it is terribly difficult, but the result is delightful beauty. Julia creates lovely art - here are a few of her other pieces.

Held Still



Julia is a delightful person and is very witty and funny - I met her on etsy. And now I have her addicted to vintage chenille bedspreads! LOL!! I am happy to call her my friend!

Well, girls, guess what??? This little ring bearer's pillow is going to be in an upcoming issue of Southern Weddings Magazine in the "fab finds" section. Although one of my pillows was in a magazine several years ago, I was not credited, so this is the first time to see my name in print - I am so excited and so thankful! I will keep y'all posted! Yippee!
