My New Pillows and Shams

Yes, I did order a pillow that I saw in a blog of a woman who was preparing some stuff for a garage sale. I just happened to spot the pillow and voilĂ  it hadn't sold so I emailed her and it's now on its way to me!!! I'm soooo blessed truly. I'll show it when I receive it. In the mean time..................

I found these 2 little cuties at WM of all places. They are nice and plump and I fell in love with it when I spotted it and knew it was mine! This one is blue and a kind of aqua also but the one below it is green. I love all the colors and don't mind a bit mixing them up, chickees.

Pintucked little soft cutie with little flouncy ruffles.

Hah...... I spotted these little paper plates and couldn't resist their lovely shocking pink color. I don't need paper plates but, hey, they were pink, only cost $1.00 for 20 plates and you little cherubs were worth it so I bought them to show you!! ;-)

Then we went back to Michaels to exchange the only 2 items I got there yesterday - a frame for hubby's new train print he bought in Riverside, Ca. and a repair kit for that little roses clock I bought for $2.00 in Calif. also. Yep, he should have come with me the first time because I got both items wrong! Sooooo we had to go back and exchange them. Just happened to drag that Love Bunny into Target and bought these little shams. He says, "Do you need new shams?" I tell ya, the man is clueless!!! Nuuuuuuuu, I say, but I want a "change" in our bedroom. He knew I was talking shams and not HIM! They're really quite lovely - white quilted with a flange of roses and a strip of pink ribbon around the ruffle also.

It's in this closeup of the shams that you can see pink threads running through them. I love that!!

And this is the headboard I've had for about 20 years that will be white before summer is over!! :-) It's got appliques already on it with dentil molding also. Isn't it lovely?!!?! And even lovelier in white.

These are the old shams. Nothing wrong with them. They look a bit tea stained and I bought them several years ago at Spiegel and love them, but all you chicks know we need change now and then, right?!?!?! Well, I'm putting these and the quilt that goes with them on sale on my other blog for a great price if anyone is interested.


  1. CHANGE, CHANGE, CHANGE...that's my mantra...always has been, always will be!! LOL!!!

    Us girls...gotta have CHANGE!!

    Love the pillows and new SHAMS!!!


  2. HEY!! I live in Corona just a hop skip and a jump from Riverside. SO SAD! I could of meet you. Next time your in Riverside just let me know! I can't wait to see the pillow. Everything I owned use to be pink and white. I had the most beautiful soft pink leather couch, I had it for a long time. Just a few years ago I changed to warmer colors. But I still have a white slip cover couch.
    Take care,

  3. HEY YOU! I just live a hop skip and a jump from Riverside. I live in Corona, so next time just let me know and maybe just maybe we can meet. I can't wait to see the pillow.

  4. LOVE your pillows! But I want the old ones AND the new ones! AND my old ones.......heck, I am always in need of a change, but don't want to part with the old ones! SO,I add new things, with the old things,....OH, that's why I sell in my daughter's shop! (so that show Clean House doesn't have to make a visit!) Hey, I finally learned how to add you to my blog, and I opened a new one too. Gloria

  5. Morning Connie! I'm feeling your need to want to change things. I love to do that. It helps us see our rooms in a different light. Love your new pillows and that little white tuffted one is so adorable.

    Can't wait to see it white. DH won't cave as of yet and let paint the bedroom furniture white. I am still working on him. He knows that I will if I really want to anyway so I am sure he will be OK. I'll just let him ponder about "When" I will do it!!LOL

  15. A change in the bedroom... You slay me. Love your new additions. Everytime I walk into the bedroom I take inventory asking myself: what do I love? what can I live without? what do I need? Always THINKING! Hugs to you from one rowdy chick to another!!!
