Vintage Towel Pillow still available - 35.00 plus 5.30 shipping.
Handmade piping with vintage heart fabric coordinates with the hearts in the design of the towel.
The little vintage floral print coordinates with the flowers, too.
The back of the pillow slipcover has more of the towel fabric. Red and white polka dots and white pom pom edging adds adorable cottage appeal. A new 12 x 16 polyfill pillow form is included.

If interested in purchasing this pillow, just leave me a comment by Tuesday, November 27th.

Duhgall is supervising me whilst I perform my Turkey magic.
"Dad, mom isn't kicking down any tid bits!"
"Ok Mom, you need to remember that Martha Stewart said to tie the bird just so!"

Hello everyone! Just wanted to leave a few words to say thank you to you lovelies who purchased my handmade things and to those who took the time to leave me a comment on my last post.

This weekend was busy for our family as we not only had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, but went on a three day Christmas decorating binge. Deep sighs....and we are just about done.

I also want to thank Jenn and Jacqui for the Rockin' Girl Blogger award - HUGS TO YOU!! Later this week, I will be passing on this and two other awards that have been recently given. As far as I am concerned, each and every blogger is just wonderful - how you open your hearts, your home and share ideas, stories and life's happenings with all of us.

We hope that you have a wonderful week! Stay warm and toasty - except for you gals who are experiencing summer right now!!

Hi Duhgall!

You sure make some cute pillows!

I haven't started my holiday decorating yet. Sigh. Better get on that.

Happy Monday!

That dog does look like he is saying what you posted. He is very cute. I hope you finally dropped something for him.

Heidi said...

Gee Becky! I really missed out on some great buys this weekend. That is what happens when I go away to my retreat in the woods.

I love the photos of Doogs! He is just too cute for words. Good thing he was reminding you how to cook and hey he needs to taste test doesn't he?

Thanks for your comments on my handwork blog. I have neglected it for CTS while I was renovating. You know my mother still has my "Hi Heidi" doll in the attic. I loved mine too! And my brother says hello by singing Hi Heidi, da da daaaa. :)

Hugs ~

Dear Becky, nice to hear that you've had a good time with your family.

The pillow is gorgeous. You know I love me some roosters! Looks like Doogs is feeling better. I'm so glad! Give him a big hug for me!!

That is some mighty fine kitchen help you had there during the turkey prep. I bet it came out perfect with that sideline coaching ;-)

Would you become my personal seamstress? Your work is so beautiful!

Congratulations on the award. You do rock!

We haven't even started decorating yet, so you are way ahead of us.

That Doogie looks like he is expecting a tidbit or two. Was he successful?
