I can make pillows but I want to buy some romantic ones!! Someone point me in the direction puhleeeeeeeeeeze! I'm too lazy today to surf for them. I want pink and girly and a good price.......Help!!!!!!!
Connie........weeping hysterically..........and begging for help........


  1. Oh, now poor poor one - here's a tissue - wipe your first and then blow your little nose. It's okay. If you lived closer to me we would go to the fabric store and pick out fabric and I would make you some girly frilly pink and cutesy pillows! Oh, and then you could pay me!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. It's funny that you mention PILLOWS, I have some on my latest post...5 Things I Love.

    Check 'em out (don't know about reasonable prices though)...


  3. CONNIE! You have already made TONS of GORGEOUS pillows!!!! Wh cant you use those? They are prettier than ones I see for $100.00!!

    Love you and glad you are home safely :)

  4. Connie, this is what I would do: go to Ebay and put the words "shabby pillow" or "pillow roses" on the search window, they have lovely pillows starting at $10... Some of them available for Buy it now!! Good luck!

  5. Connie, I have found some really pretty ones recently on Etsy that are really reasonable priced! You could try there.


  6. Hi Connie ~ I found this page and I think you will LOVE it!

    Some of the pillows are quite pricey though... I would use their ideas and get my sewing machine out. HA!


  7. Connie...Sweets!!! Dont cry!!! I just got the most darling...shabby chic pillow from e-bay!! $26.00!!
    Which I thought was a great price!!
    E-mail me & I will give you the info!!!!

  9. Thanks for your email, I'm glad you enjoy my blog. It is nice to meet you! I hope you find your pillows!

    Happy day,

  10. Hi Connie! I hear ya! I came across your wonderful blog and thought I would send you on a pillow chase (yes that is chase, not case!) I know you love PINK, have you ever looked up Make Mine Pink? There are wonderful on line boutiques there, mine being one of them. One person makes beautiful needlepoint pillows:
    Good luck on your romantic pillow search. I would love to add you to my blog of wonderful blogs to visit. Please let me know. Thanks.

  11. I always find great pillows at TJ Maxx... Jen R

  12. Oh! I'm just having fun looking at all the links left for you! I know you sew. I'll bet you could make yourself some gorgeous pillows!

  13. Well, well, well! Now you and I have such different problems. I've been wanting some homemade pillows but I can sew a stitch!

    Guess we always want what we can't have.

    But, I look on all the wonderful blog sites and see which ones have stores and go there. I found a darling little pillow and love it.


  14. I have bought sooooo many pillows over the years from Susy on ebay. She goes by Suedels. Most of my pillows are soft pinks and blues - real shabby. I also have some she made from vintage tablecloths. She is very reasonable. She also does custom orders.

  15. Hey Connie, hope you had fun in Calif. Most of the girls I know sell mainly white pillows, but here are their links just in case: & and I have recently seen some pretty ones at Home Goods and TJ Maxx.

  16. Did you find your pillows??
    I have WAY TOO MANY and am going to sell them in my new soon to open shop/store. However, if you want I can put them on the website....
    Hugs and Love, Amy (Mom to the Four Sisters)
