Pillows~

So I have a bit of an obsession with pillows. They add such softness to a space. Here are a few of the old softies around my house...
In the kitchen...


In bedrooms (of course!)

The Princess' room...


The boys' room...




Recognize the little birdie on this pillow? One of my latest drawings...you will be able to find him soon in my Etsy. He's in the library right now on the hubby's chair (I haven't heard any complaining...yet)...





On my mudbench...



In the boys' room again...



In the living room...




Pillows are a great way to bring a cozy feeling to a room, and to keep it looking "up to date" without investing a lot of money.
Do you love pillows?

Your pillows are all very beautiful and I agree, they go along ways to warm up a space.

Jeanneoli said...

I am starting to think I have a problem!:-) There are so many beautiful pillows out there lately and I somehow feel like I need to purchase them all! Love your little bid pillow.

Barb said...

I'm looking forward to another frugal Friday this week!!

Melanie said...

I love all the pillows you have. I like how you mix patterns. I have no ability whatsoever to do that. Yours look great!

I have to know who makes, and where you purchased the sheets in the princess' room? Those just make me want to take a nap! You know, I love pillows, but I am seriously pillow challenged. It seems easy enough to throw some pillows around but mine always end up too matchy-matchy or not the right size. I'm working on that though!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Did you make all those pillows??! They are fabulous! I love all of them, esp. the toile one and the one with the buttons in the boy's room. Too cute!

I've got my 100th post giveaway going on today. I hope you can stop by to sign up in the drawing! ;)

I love pillows! Love to fill them with down inserts so they can be perfectly poofed.

Betsy said...

I have pillows upon pillows upon pillows. I am sure my husband hates pillows. But I LOVE them.

Oh yes, pillows and pillows. I can't get enough of them.

I have seen so many beautiful pillows around blogland that I have started a bit of a pillow obsession. Your pillows are ALL GORGEOUS! I received my nest pillow from you and I absolutely LOVE it!!!!! My biggest problem is that my hubby hates pillows on the couch so if I put some there they end up on the floor...UGG

The Graves' House said...

love your newest drawing! so glad to know too that someone else has this many pillows about. hubby sometimes thinks i've lost it!!!

Glitter and Bliss said...

Your home looks so inviting and cozy. I love all your pillows.

Doris the Great said...

I love pillows too. Thankfully, I don't spend a lot of money on them as I get most from the various thrift stores in my area. But I simply cannot resist a good pillow.

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Joanna: The sheets in the Princess' room are from the Simply Shabby Chic line at Target. (I love them too...I wish I could put them in my room, but the Hubby has a bit of an aversion to sleeping on floral sheets. ha!)

Amanda: I did make most of my throw pillows... I think the only one I didn't make happens to be the one with the buttons in the boys' chair. I just love to be able to customize, and this is one of the least expensive ways I've found.

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Amanda: I lied I didn't make the bee pillows on the mud bench...they are from IKEA.

Victoria@WhimsybyVictoria said...

I too have a pillow obsession!! There can never be enough anywhere! I have the same red dragonfly fabric that I made pillows from. They went from my family room to my office. I love the Whimsy of them. It doesn't matter how many pillows you have to move to sit or sleep, I just could never have too many! Thanks for sharing your pillow obsession too! Oh, love the birdie pillow!!

Hugs to you,
~Victoria~

I have a thing for pillows too. They're the first thing I start thinking about when I want to decorate a room. I have waaay too many.

I love all of your pillows, especially the one on your hubby's chair. Your house is beautiful!

Tammy said...

Yes, I do LOVE pillows. And I really love my Spring nest pillow that I recently purchased from you. It's gorgeous!

Nora said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one! My husband gets so mad at me for always buying new pillows. He just doesn't understand... :)

Simply Dandy said...

I truly have a pillow fetish. When I am in a store, that is usually the first place I go, to check out the pillows! I purposely bought a slipcoverered cream sofa so I can change my pillows out frequently.

The Johnstone's said...

Love the pillows with the buttons... can you post a "how to" on these (or re-post)? I'd love to do this for my master bedroom.

Brenda@View From The Pines said...

I do love them! And I have many in the linen closet with nowhere to put them for some reason. I have ones I've made of patchwork, crazy quilting and yo-yos.

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Oh yes, pillows are one of my favorite accents! I've been changing out mine in favor of a "lighter" look. I just bought some new linen pillow covers and I'm thinkin' of painting something on them or doing an iron on transfer. Any suggestions?

LuLu said...

I have a love for pillow as well. I actually need a couple more for a few areas in my home... hmmm an Etsy visit is in order..

Angie said...

Okay - first off, I love, love, love the bee pillow on the mudbench. How long ago did you get it at IKEA? I need a couple of those. Secondly, I love your dragon fly pillows on your couch so much that I have the exact same ones! Well maybe similar anyway. A friend made mine and the back of my pillow is gold to make it reversible. I love that fabric!

Shelia said...

Evening, Wendy. I just love your pillows! You can never have enough.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Crystal said...

I saw your mud room in BHG Decorating magazine this month! I knew it looked familiar when I saw it and could not remember where. How cool are you?

Tiffany said...

Yes, I have a love affair with pillows. My Mom has made nearly every pillow in my house. I just go pick some fabric and give it to my custom designer...it's great! : ) Gorgeous pillows you have in your house!
