These winter days seem to be dragging on and on and on!! One of the kiddos had another bout with the stomach flu last night. The carpet in the boys room fell victim to partially digested pizza and a hot fudge sundae~sorry if your eating while reading this!! At 1:30 this morning the boy woke me up to inform me of the mess. With one look and one whiff...I thought screw it!! I tended to the boy, tucked him in on the sofa, closed the door on the mess and went back to bed!!! Gross...right?? I just couldn't deal with it. I was x!#!x# tired! First thing this morning I went in to town to rent the good ol rug doctor. It took all stains out of the boys carpet and I ended up cleaning the rest of the carpets in the house as well. It feels so good.... and I can check that off my spring cleaning list. To freshen things up a wee bit more I decided to whip together some spring like pillows. I ran across this waverly print at the fabric store a few weeks back. It wasn't cheap, so I just picked up just one yard and made these pillows.

There are hints of blue in this pretty little picture and I thought the two would compliment each other well.

We purchased our cream sofa a few years back and I am still in love with it. When I grow tired of one look, I can just switch up the pillows for a whole new one. Anything goes with cream....right!!

I think this pillow is just what this wicker rocker needed...

Do yall think it would be to much if I added ball fringe to these pillows??

Am so glad you are feeling better and were able to eliminate all evidence of your illness. I do remember the results of my needing to burrow down and catch up on my health. UGH ;-).
Your pillow is so cute...I vote for the fringe balls.
I also have a picture like yours, however I emphasized the color green.

I love the pillows and I think the balls would be the perfect touch! Sorry to hear about the dinner and dessert reappearing on the boys' carpet. I hope everyone stays healthy now!

I thinks the balls too!!

Thanks for your comment...Chickens are so easy to look after, no matter how much research you do on them you find you don't take any notice and go with the flow!

Take care...Amy xx

Add the fringe! Good idea about the rug doctor - better than trying to scrub it out yourself.

Your spring pillows are very nice. I'd say either way with or without the fringe balls, they look great!

So sorry to hear your kiddos are sick. I hope the sickies are out of your house and fast. Whenever I've been faced with puke in the middle of the night and I'm too tired to function myself, I'll throw baking soda on it and let it sit. It neutralizes the odor and soaks up any wetness making for easy clean up in the morning.
The pillows look great! I'm a waverly fan myself. I like them without the ball fringe, but I know they'd look cute with it also :0)
Hope you have a great day!
