Vintage Inspired Pillow Covers

We decided to try our hands at something new. We have been busy in our workspace a/k/a "Shannon's Hallway" creating our new line of pillow covers. These covers are great for changing your look as they fit any 18" x 18" pillow. Just slip them on and your old look is transformed. We always have collected vintage photos, postcards, calling cards and anything old. We are using them to create a vintage inspired look. Shannon being the seamstress of the group got busy with her sewing machine and there you have it. We have several designs in the works, the possibilities are endless. So check out our Etsy site to see what we will be listing on there. Here are some more snaps of our pillow covers.

"Our Family Tree"

Well the "Holidays" are over, hope everyone had a wonderful and memorable season. What a job taking down all of those Christmas decorations, it is almost as much work taking it down as it is putting it up. Many of you proably saw natural decorations being used this year such as the tree branches that were used in Pottery Barn and Ballard Designs. Well I just couldn't bring myself to throw those branches out. I had used the branches to display my vintage christmas ornaments by placing them in a sap bucket on a table behind my sofa. Sooo..... I decided to make a family tree. I just kept the branches in the sap bucket and I'm using clothes pins to display some of my family photos. So if you still have your branches or if you want to run out and get a branch or two, this is an easy way for a new and unique display in your home. If you don't want to use photos you could use old Valentine cards as Valentine's Day is approaching.
