If there was one thing I wish I could do, it would be sewing. My grandmother has been a seamstress all her life. She made my mother and her two sisters clothes growing up and would even make their barbie and doll clothes. She can sew curtains, dust ruffles, pillows, prom dresses, knit scarves, crochet, etc. You name it, she can sew it. She even made Henry’s bedding and the curtains in his bathroom and bedroom. When I look back, I wish I would have spent more time learning to sew from her instead of playing Super Nintendo. Hindsight is always 20/20. Back to the topic … PILLOWS! I am a pillow hoarder. I will even buy random pillow cases at target on the clearance shelf if it has a pretty pattern. Even if it’s a lonely case with no partner. I.just.love.cushions. I saw a gorgeous set of Bee Cushions the other day, they would make a lovely gift for someone! We’re running out of room in our living room and bedroom so now the pillows decorate Henry’s room. My poor child … So check out these amazing pillows from Etsy, some come only with the cover so make sure you can locate an insert in the size you want before ordering. I prefer a down feather fill which is more inviting than poly fill. You can get poly fill inserts at your local JoAnn’s, Michael’s, Ikea or Hobby Lobby. Crate and Barrel and Nordstrom online sell down feather inserts in most standard sizes. I hope everyone has a great weekend! We have our neighborhood garage sale tomorrow and then we may check out the Inman Park Festival. Henry also turns 10 months old on Sunday … sad face 🙁 I will post a recap on Monday!
Anyone that knows me knows I have a slight obsession with shopping. Okay, maybe not so slight (just ask my husband). There are so many amazing products out there that I want to share so I’ve decided to start a weekly column with five of my favorite Etsy finds. This week is all about blankets. Henry has so many blankets and I sometimes wish we lived in Alaska so I would have an excuse to buy more. My favorites usually always include a pattern … I think everything should be covered in pattern and I am slowly incorporating it into all aspects of my life. Check out these fun blankets from these Etsy sellers:
