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 :)

Kristin, your pillows are gorgeous! I really like adding a splash of black in any room, because it makes things pop. Loving your whole color scheme...very well done, very classy! Thanks for sharing.

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
