On the bulldog pillow I learned that the spray on fabric paint runs, haha. But, I still think it looks pretty cool. To pinpoint more of an outline, I took yellow fabric paint and lined around it to make it sharper.
Chubby would be proud :)
The grey and pink pillow is a gift for someone special and was pretty easy to make. The flowers are made out of felt and sewed on to the pillow form.
I'm loving my sewing machine!

I'm currently working on a big pillow and I'm trying to decide if I want to do a bulldog silhouette on the grey pillow. I think they always are a classic look that adds personal touches of things you love. Here's some examples of what they can add to your home decor.

This pillow was super easy and fun! I bought a piece of an old sackcloth at the flea market yesterday, and filled it with some polyfill and it turned out so chic! I like the old printing that is faded and the softness of the fabric. I trimmed it with grey threading and I adore it !
I love French decorating style. I'm going through a phase where I love burlap, linen, and greys. Its Comfortable, chic, and has feeling of history in every piece. Here's some examples of things I am in love with. Enjoy!

I've been wanting a sewing machine for a little while now, but I just hadn't committed to one yet. After researching I picked a great beginner machine, a Brother 50 stitch. My husband was sweet and let me pick it out! I love it!!! I have never used a machine before and was a little nervous. It took me a couple of hours to get it all set up with the manual. Ha! But alas I made my first stitches tonight. It's so fun and filled with so many possiblities. I can't wait to go sewing crazy!
I'll go and check out Ross for Less every once in a while. Sometimes I don't find anything, and sometimes I find a treasure. Well, the other day I let out an OH MY GOODNESS! I was in the sheets aisle and I spotted this bag with a tan linen bed skirt in it and since it was stuffed in an open bag I looked at the tag to see what size it was. To my surprise it was a Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams bedskirt! Wooohoo for 2.99!!! I need to iron it, but I threw it on to check it out and it goes perfect with my Anthropologie Duvet! High five!

I have two of these vintage broyhill chairs from the Provincia line that my sweet Aunt and Uncle gave to me from the home they moved in west Tennessee. They are currently restoring that historic plantation that made it through the battle of Trenton in the 1800's! I will definately be posting pictures of that process. So they are pretty special to me. I finished the first chair this weekend, I'm pretty happy with the results. Its kind of has a french feeling to it with the creamy textured tan fabric and yellow paint.
