Pillow Talk...

Welcome to Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound!

(click any photos to enlarge)

Pink roses on pillows... a match made in heaven!!


This is the sofa in our family room, and it's the most comfy spot to lounge, watch TV, or read a book...


Last month, on my way home from a dental appointment, I happened to drive by a Marshalls store....



Since I needed some foaming hand wash for the bathroom, I popped in... Now I know I should have picked up the hand wash and then made a quick exit...



... but I made the mistake of doing a quick walk around the store. When I spotted these pillows, I was absolutely smitten!



All my favorite colors... perfect pink, cottage blue, spring green... These pillows are as soft and comfy as they are beautiful... (some women have a handbag fetish... I think I have a pillow fetish)...


And one of the best features is that they tie in the back so they can be easily removed for washing!


So you've seen my store-bought pillows, but if you'd like to see a very unique pillow, you must visit Mel at her Country in the Town blog (which is delightful!)


Just look at this embroidered "envelope" pillow she made, complete with a pink rose "stamp" in the corner!!! Is this not the sweetest pillow you've ever seen? How perfect would this be as a housewarming gift with the recipient's new address embroidered on it? I asked Mel if I could share her very special pillow with you in today's post and she graciously agreed!


Please click on either of these two photos to go directly to the pillow post. Mel has beautiful photos of this pillow as well as others. (My pictures do not do her pillows justice! I used my camera to take photos of her blog pictures from my computer monitor... trust me when I tell you that makes for very bad quality photos!!) Thanks again, Mel, for letting me share your unique envelope pillow!!


Now be sure to stop by and see Beverly's beautiful Pink Saturday post, where you'll also find a list of all the other pink loving bloggers participating in today's Pink Saturday!!!

I love all things patchwork. Patchwork or sampler items definately have their place amongst the more organize and precisely thought out items. I think patchwork screams... comfortable.

Lovely pillows.

Claudia said...

Great pillows, Donna! They are your colors, aren't they? Perfect for your lovely home. By the way, did you see the birdcage photo I posted on my blog this week? It made me think of you. Happy Pink Saturday!

Your new pillows are soooo pretty. I think you were destined to have them. (Did you remember the soap after seeing these beauties?) Love that "letter" pillow. I'm going to check out her blog. laurie

Hi Donna

Thanks so much for featuring me!!! Did my email ever arrive? You should have had the jpegs on it but never mind if it didn't, I think your photos look quite cute and soft focus!

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Those are gorgeous and just my style! Are they by Rachel Ashwell? They remind me of her fabrics and products. So pretty! I love that the cover comes off so easily too for easy cleaning.

Love your pillows, they are gorgeous! I am really commenting on your post of carrot cake. I have a recipe for the best ever carrot cake. I am not really a cake person, but it is scrumptious, even those who don't like carrot cake love it! Too long to include here, but email me if you would like it for your daughter's future cake requests. meribela@sbcglobal.net

Hi Donna, oh my! what gorgeous pillows those are!! aren't you glad now you kept looking?! :) I say the same thing when I go in those stores, but it never works that way :) I come home full handed , but love everything, so it's worth it! :)

Glenda said...

Marshall's gets away with making me but things too I don't need. Love the pillows they look soft and comfy.

Love your windows, they look like there from a English Tudor am I right ?

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

Great pillows! I have the same problem when I go in TJMax...their pillows hop right into my buggy and ultimately end up on my screened in porch. :-) Love the ones that came home with you! Susan

Donna Lynn said...

Love the pillows, I make the same mistake when I go to Ross or TJ Maxx...scary sometimes for my poor wallet!

Have a blessed Monday!

What would we do without pillows? We'd all still be trying to rest our heads on rocks! Thank goodness someone invented the soft fluffy headrests we have today!! LOVE the pillows you scored, they are awesome!

And be careful, you're going to become known as... The Birdlamp Lady!! You are so nice to research the lamps for everyone Donna. You are sweet that way to all of us.

Big hugs, Sherry
