My New Pillows~ and New Frames are on their way!

Hey guys! I'm in a better mood now after finding out the good news about my hubby! Thank you all for your uplifting comments, I really appreciate your concern. The whole family feels like a weight has been lifted!

Now for some decorating... As you can probably see I took the zebra pillow back (the one in my header). I bought two of them and I just wasn't satisfied. When Kevin and I were up north for one of his appointments we went to the Mall. I found the black pillows and leopard and zebra pillow at Dillard's and the round ones at Tuesday morning. I was thrilled to find these! Most of you remember the black "B"pillow I made, I felt like I needed black on the sofas to tie everything together and balance out the room. Plus I am loving black right now!

The room is much more tied together now. I was hoping the rug and pillows wouldn't be to much pattern in the room. It's alot, but for some reason I don't mind it. I think it's because the sofas are solid. I bought this glass bowl at Hobby Lobby because I thought it was really neat and had a zebra look to it. That's what made me want some zebra pillows!
I feel that touches of black really ground a room and adds a little bit of sophistication, it also makes a statement. I have read that every room needs a little bit of black to sharpen everything else. I guess that makes since!

I wanted to give you a little peek at a few new frames. I will be listing around 35 in my Etsy store in the next couple of days. I have been busy! I look forward to showing you all of my newest creations!


This is just a peek! Be sure and stop back by on Saturday. I should have them listed by then if my schedule goes as planned. I will be decorating a house for Christmas tomorrow so I will be sure to take pictures. Can you believe it's almost that time! Over the next several weeks I will be showing you some of the homes I decorate, frames, how to make a tree topper, and much more so be sure and stay tuned....




Thanks for your visit!!

Kristen I am truly so relieved and happy for you two. I would give you all a big hug right now if I could. What a relief!

Your new pillows are just amazing! I LOVE them and you are so right about the black. Zebra print is everywhere right now it seems. It really looks so classy and pretty in your living room. I adore that bowl too!

Well you knew it would happen again...LOL! I must have another frame. The first one you have shown is just PERFECT for our home office bookshelf. Can you put an "M" on it for me? I want it for sure. You don't even have to list that beauty. I'll check them out and see if I want any others. I may want a Christmas one as well.

You can email me when you have time. ~Melissa :)

Oh, and your frames are gorgeous.

Hi Kristen. I love love your zebra pillows! I am a fan of zebra decor here. :) I currently have a zebra table runner in my living room and one of my bathrooms has a zebra theme. I used to have our bedroom in zebra theme but I changed that to a more romantic theme. So yes, I love zebra. :D Love your frames too!
Blessings,
Sandra
