Stripes and Flowers - Pink, of course!

Spotty asked if he could show you this little throw that we use on our loveseat.


It's fitting that he should show it to you since it covers up the slipcovered seating area that's all pulled from "pussyfooting" kitty claws...


I found this at a second-hand shop when I switched over from prim to cottage...


It's actually a reversible, ruffled baby crib comforter... (I don't remember sweet little crib comforters like this back when my girls were babies!!)


I have always loved stripes and florals together, and the colors in this comforter are cottage perfect!!


I think I'd use it even if I wasn't trying to hide kitty damage!

Be sure to visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to see her Pink Saturday post and to find a list of all the other pink-loving bloggers who are participating in today's Pink Saturday!!

How lovely that you "switched from prim to cottage" - it all looks delightful and Spotty looks really at home as only a kitty can!

Your recent snow pics are great - I remember the snow like that when I lived in Mass. We just had some this week in NC - it was pretty around the cottage, and 6" was more than enough! Soon you will out snapping Spring shots of the same views - lovely thought.

Happy Pink Saturday.

I have a few kitty throw cushions myself . . . It's a small price to pay for their cozy company.

Donna, what a clever idea. I love it. I'll have to keep this idea in mind, as Mr. Ming does some pussyfooting around himself. Have a great week-end, and Happy PS hugs

Joy said...

I love it and it looks wonderful on your sofa!

Claudia said...

I love the cover - so charming and especially beautiful with your sweet kitty sitting on it. Spotty reminds me of my Scout; somehow they know just where to sit and 'pose.'

Donna, thank you so much for your kind words about my Mom. Your support means so much!

Envoy-ette said...

Cute cats need cute places to sit!

Donna, What a pretty pink comforter.. love the ticking look.
Great idea to use for a slipcover..
Thanks Spotty for show it to us.
Have a lovely day ~Mary~ :-}

Jean said...

The little cover is so cute and goes so well with your decor. I just love pink, but I also love red, so I am constantly torn as to which way to go. Because I have so much red, I guess I'll stick with that. Spotty (so cute) has good taste and must love the cover, too!

TattingChic said...

What a lovely throw! The beautiful kitty did such a great job of showing it off. ;)

I also enjoyed the "balance beam in the family room" post! Oh, your kitty cats are adorable!

Hi Donna, I've tagged you for 7 random facts about yourself. If you can't or don't want to participate, it's OK, but it'll be fun and I'd like to get to know more about you. Go to my blog to get the rules. Thanks. Jean

Llyn M said...

"pussyfooting" LOL! I like that better than 'makin' biscuits'! How sweet! Happy belated PS!

Nola @ the Alamo said...

How sweet, I love the idea of covering up the "pussyfooting" area. Every fabric I have has been pussyfooted to some degree.

Cynthia's Cottage Design said...

Soooo pretty Donna! I love stripes and Florals too!

Hugs, Cynthia

Shabby Addict said...

I am totally a stripe/floral lover too! It just seems to go so well! The comforter goes so perfect with your decor!
