Saturday afternoon I decided to make some pillows. I used some left over floral fabric from my dining rooms chairs to make two small pillows and I used the thrifted blue linen that I had used to cover my other chair I showed you last week. The large pillow insert came from Ikea. They have feather inserts for $3 or $4...what a deal! The smaller inserts are also feather filled. Angela~Cottage Magpie has a great tutorial on how to make pillows (click here if you are interested).

Pin It Now!
I'm home this morning. My car wouldn't start last night so I had to have it towed to the shop this morning! I'm so bummed, it's going to cost me about $500 between the repairs and the towing! I consider myself a strong, independent woman but when car problems come along I really wish I could just pass this off to the man of the house to handle but since there is no man of the house here, I had to handle it on my own. I do call the most important man in my life...my dad, so he can tell me what it could be so I can act like I know more than I do when I speak to the mechanic. The only positive thing is that I had to walk a little over a mile back home from the mechanic and when it's ready I have to walk back so at least I'm getting some exercise today...see there is something positive in everything!!!
Don't forget...I'll be on the HGTV show "Rate my Space" this Thursday night!!!! We're on the countdown now!!!
