Pillow Love and a Winner!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I have to tell you that I'm shameless, yes, the pillow maker nut!  I ordered a pillow from Pottery Barn!  Please don't tell anyone.
But it had shells on it.....I had to have it.  Okay, I ordered two, please don't tell, please
Don't you just love the script fabric on this one.....

And, it looks so good with my Restoration Hardware pillows, oops, I let that one slip.

I've shown you my mirror collection, but lately I've added a few more.  I have such a weakness.

The winner of my 1000 followers pink giveaway is
Allison.  She doesn't have a blog but she follows many of your blogs and always leaves the nicest comments.  She's a real Sweetie!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Sissieness! You bought pillows? Well, at least they're lovely pillows! You need to take a break every once in a while! :)
Hope you'll come to my favorite cupboard party on Tuesday.
Be a sweetie,

I bought some pillows today too Sissie and felt a tiny bit guilty! But I love the instant gratification. Your pillows all together look great on the sofa. I also covet your mirror collection.

Love your pillows, they are fabulous, and so are all of your mirrors. Sometimes we just have to go and buy one instead of make them. I won't tell anyone. lol Hugs, Marty

My congrats to the winner!

Denise said...

Well you naughty girl you! :) I've been tempted to order one of the pillows with pretty butterflys myself. Love yours. And I sweat I need to just go ahead and order one of those from Restoration Hardware before they run out. They're a great price.

One Cheap B*tch said...

You are so funny, Sissie! It's okay! Every now and then it happens to the best of us! I adore my pillow slips from Pottery Barn. I certainly can't make them and when you can't make them yourself, it's okay to buy! Even more so when there is free shipping involved!


Lisa's Creative Designs said...

I just found you blog and love it! The pillows are beautiful!

Vicki said...

I love that shell pillow! Allison is a lucky girl.

bj said...

Your new pillows are awesome, Sissie. You deserve to be able to buy some now and then....even tho you DO make the prettiest ones.:)))

CHERI said...

Congrats to Allison but sure wish it had been me!! Love your pillows but the ones you make are so much prettier:)

Olivia said...

Oh Sissie I think your pillows are darling! Ohhh and what pretty mirrors you have. I use alot of mirrors too, but I have yet to make a collage with them. Congrats to your winner.
Squishy hugs,

All That Jazz said...

Girl, you crack me up! We all have our addictions. I am joining you in your mirror addiction. I bought 2 this weekend. One already went to the shop and I can't decide if I want to keep the other one! I love me a good throw pillow. I say keep making $ on the ones you make and then you can buy all you want!

Thanks for stopping by the Jazz blog and entering our giveaway. I hope you win, as you are always so generous with your giveaways. Have a great week and I am sure I'll be back before the weekend!

Linda said...

Sissie, oh how I wish I had won the cute pink tote. Oh well, maybe another time. I love all your pillows. I have many addictions, one being magazines. I have a hard time getting rid of them but the ones I won't get rid of are Romantic Country (have everyone since I starting buying) and Jeanne d'Arc Living. Oh how I love these magazines.

Karen said...

Hi there Miss Sissie.
I just got back from RoundTop, Texas and just wanted to know if YOUR EARS WERE BURNIN? Everywhere I went I saw pillows, and I always said the same thing "Sissie's are better than this...and much cuter too!" I had to laugh.
So keep it up Girlfriend - your pillows are the best - and shhhhhh - nobody is going to tell you bought a few from Pottery Barn. We all have to splurge now and then...
Hugs! Karen
