Sweet Dreams

With Valentine's Day soon approaching I thought that I would make some little "sweet dream" pillows. In the center of each pillow is a little cross stitched heart and the word LOVE that I designed. Inside the pillows is fresh lavender and polyfill. Just tuck the little pillow near where you sleep and you will be sure to have "sweet dreams".

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Hi Laura ~~ The cross stitch takes me about an hour or so to do and then to assemble the pillows about another two hours or so. Thank you for asking.

Barb said...

Your little pillows are adorable.
Thank you for sharing.

Mona said...

MY PILLOWS ARRIVED TODAY!! And..they are the cutest things ever. I have them in my living room mixed with some photographs.
Then...I rushed to Etsy looking for any more that might be posted and..came up empty handed..so far...
These are just the sweetest little addition to my Valentine collection. Something you really could leave out all years if you LOVE red like I do. Back to my search. :)

Elizabeth-Plain and Simple said...

Love the pillows. You do beautiful work and I like the idea of adding fresh lavender to them.

Blessings,
Elizabeth

Mona said...

Becky..I will be SO happy when I learn my way around. I found the links you were talking about I think. I feel a bit foolish...well..a lot foolish. Not sure if I found the pillow or not. Is it red..with a bird on it?
Anyway..I was overwhelmed by both places where items were posted. I realize they are not for
sale..but.. :) Just still cannot find the ones you spoke of in your note.
Will wait to hear from you.
Hugs,
Mona (other wise knows as Ms. Clueless!)
