I'm Still So Shabby!



Hello Dear Ones!! We've been redoing the bedroom ~ painting and changing the colors, curtains, and pillows. Blues and browns. I'm not quite finished with the decorating but I couldn't wait to show you some of my pillows!

This is a really pretty shade of blue, looks kinda gray here, but trust me! :)

Pillows on the bed...


See? I told you I was still being Shabby! I've made a new pillow with Shabby Roses! Isn't it pretty?


I made the pillow to sit in this little rocking chair with my little sea shell throw.


I made four rows of ruffles and then three shabby roses! She's so pretty, isn't she? I don't mean to be bragging on myself ~ but she is just so lovely! :)


More pillows! Now I'm didn't make these two pillows. I didn't want you to think I was this wonderful! I could have lied and told you I made them, but no, no Nannette, I wouldn't do that! :) I popped into TJMaxx and was looking at pillows and found these! The fabric is almost the same color as my shabby pillow! So I had to have them. The pattern on the front is so pretty the way the fabric is turned and sewn! The binding is a dark chocolate brown. Oh, they're pretty! Then...

I turned around and saw these! Perfect! The same blue and chocolate brown!! There were two of these!
Then...

From the same fabric as my shabby rose pillow, I made this little long pillow. Actually the fabric I used for the pillows is from my curtains that I'll show you later, and the border was there and so it made for a perfect longie pillow.


Well, shoot! Do I keep my shabby rose pillow on the little chair or on my bed? I'm kinda loving my shabby rose pillow on the bed! I love this! Can you love little shabby rose pillows on the bed? Well, you bet your sweet dreams you can!! :)

So...
I guess for now I'll leave my little shabby rose pillow on my bed! I did good, didn't I? :) You know I'm just teasing, but this time I think I really mean it too! :) My so bad! :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Sweet Dreams
(I have no idea what this song is about and I hope it's not about bad things. I always think of the chocolate commercial that used this as their theme song. Chocolate is always good! )

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something.

Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused.

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something.

Hold your head up - Keep your head up - Movin' on
Hold your head up - Movin' on - Keep your head up - Movin' on
Hold your head up - Movin' on - Keep your head up - Movin' on
Hold your head up - Movin' on - Keep your head up.

Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused.

Hold your head up - Keep your head up - Movin' on
Hold your head up - Movin' on - Keep your head up - Movin' on
Hold your head up - Movin' on - Keep your head up - Movin' on
Hold your head up - Movin' on - Keep your head up.
