I Heart Saturday AND....pillow covers from mom!

My mom can sew. Me - not so much. But, I have so many ideas that just need a stitch here and there... nothing MAJOR. So, her having a new little machine works out PERFECT for me :)
I wanted to add this fabric somewhere.....I thought covering my favorite throw pillows would be a good use.
My mom surprised me with some really cute touches! She used velcro to attach the one of the sides so that I could easily take out my former beloved pillows.

But, what I did not know she would do was to add these buttons - which were my grandmothers.....


and she picked out this cute ribbon for the inside.....


more buttons...each pillow is different...I love!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! The name came from a former home of ours--we had this adorable wooden door set in brick all covered in ivy. It made us think of a hobbits home. We hope one day to have another "hobbbit home." :)

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog. In response to your question, my walls are "Montgomery White," a color from Benjamin Moore. It looks like cream on the swatch but is actually the most beautiful light warm yellow. I love it and it seems to be a great background for anything.
