Pillow Talk

I have been drooling over the gorgeous personalized pillows on Etsy that the clever creator made by sewing buttons in the shape of an initial. SO darling! But a bit expensive, too....

Then I had an idea: I already had a simple, striped pillow that matches our bed skirt, but it was a little plain and in need of something.... and I ended up with over 100 brownish and neutral-colored buttons for $1.00!

So, I made my own!

HERE is my "A" pillow, made with those buttons! (I think it took about 70+ buttons. I lost count after about 45!)


And HERE is my new pillow on our bed!
