Home Sweet Home Pillow

This past week we went up to my dad’s lake house in Michigan. Oh how our family adores being on a lake.  IMG_0402Boating, tubing, knee-boarding, swimming, fishing, basking in the sun…I love it all.   There is no other place that I would rather be.   Every time my hubby and I are on a lake we dream about buying lake property one day.

But the minute I came home and walked into the door of my house, I said “Ahhhh, home sweet home.”

Home.   I love that word.

Last week I told you that I had one finishing touch for the serene spot I created in our master bedroom.   The newly upholstered couch needed a finishing touch.   I embroidered a “home sweet home” pillow to complete the space.   The little birdies on the pillow complement the bird lamp makeover I showed you last week.

i used some leftover fabric from the couch and added cording around the edge to give it a tailored look.

    I used to live in Michigan too. Everyone has a house on the lake there?! Don't blame them. It's beautiful – just like ur pillow!

  8. Wow, that space came together amazingly. I would love to be able to do such amazing reconstructions!

    You're so right! Your pillow really does pull everything together!! :)

    I think your special corner turned out beautifully. I especially love that you used the chair fabric as cording. It just ties it all in and makes it look complete. My other favorite is the bird lamp. That little bit of blue paint made such s huge difference.

    If that corner was in my house, I'd be sitting there right now :-D Thanks for sharing another beautiful space in your home.

  14. Love your corner spot! The pillow is really pretty.

    I love how munchkin-ey the whole corner is – perfectly mini. And the accessories look great! I know how you struggle with accessorizing at times. Well done.

    Love your cozy corner!!! love the pillow…mind sharing where the embroidery design came from?

    It's very pretty. What about some sort of a larger brown pillow behind the embroidered one to really make it pop. Very sweet and serene corner. Like it.

    Perfect. What a nice spot to curl up with a good book and a cup of cocoa. The pillow is such a nice addition.

    Hey Beckie,
    Are you going to start selling the Home Sweet Home pillows in your shop? I have a pillow that needs a new cover and that would be PERFECT for it! Same colors and everything. Just let me know. I would have to do special sizing to fit the pillow since it goes with a chair.
