Whatever Floats Your Boat.......


I am so incredibly in love with this pillow...
Maybe because of the luscious velvet, or
Maybe because of the intricate silk embroidery...

Regardless......it melts my heart :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And not that it's at all related, but I started making these
Chicken wire table top mannequins about a year ago and posted about them then.

Aside from the chicken wire being awkward to work with,
The little forms go together very easily.

I always surprise myself when I come up with a different way to
Use something I make, when it is so obvious in the first place??

I think these little ladies look perfect used as a lamp shade over a
Stick type lamp......allowing just the right amount of lighting,
and wonderful whimsy.

Dress them up, or dress them down
for whatever look that floats your boat....


Thank for stopping by today,
You know I love it when you come...

Back to getting ready for the Dolly Johnson Antique Show
March 9th in Fort Worth....

See you later :)

  2. Love that pillow. It looks like it might have originated in the 70's as I kind of remember that pattern.

    Your chicken wire forms are soooo cute. Love them-xo Diana
