How was your weekend?  Ours was just swell. I’ve got a big story I can’t wait to tell! We worked through the weekend on our latest plan, with Skil Saw and Dremel and nail gun in hand. Tomorrow I’ll show all our hard work to you, together we built ourselves something brand new.

Till then, wishing you all a . . .

Decorative Pillow Giveaway

October 28th, 2011

Hello hello and happy Friday everyone!  Thanks so much for all of your kind comments on yesterday’s post on creativity and Why I DIY, I’ve read them all and appreciate all of your perspectives, it’s a great conversation so join in with your opinion!

When I posted pictures of my fall mantel a few weeks ago, several of you asked me where did I get those colorful floral pillows on the sofa and chair.  Well I’ll tell ya!  They come from a fabulous Etsy shop I discovered called Festive Home Décor. After I found Michelle’s shop, I had a hard time picking just one!  It’s filled with so many elegant and modern pillows made with designer fabrics.
