SNS #50 brings you – pillows!

Hello friends!

My son and I are out and about this weekend, taking me away from the computer for the most part. However, I’m still very happy to host SNS.

I’ll be late for the party so ya’ll behave now, ya hear? 🙂

 Some think of me as a  pillow-aholic.

I have no idea WHY.


 (ESPRESSO is from The Little Green Bean)

I mean… do you see anything unusual here?

I do. They’re all in place in these pictures. Normally they’re crushed or on the floor. I’ve long nicknamed pillows as ‘floor throwers’.

Even so, I still LOVE the look of a bazillion pillows! Most of mine are from thrift stores. I even have a few authentic sandbag pillows in the mix. That burlap thing standing up is a $1.50 sandbag. (also see in the first 2 photos too) Even the seat cushion on this chair is ‘just a pillow.’

 Now, if I could  ‘find’ authentic grain sacks so I can make pillows like this one by Miss Mustard Seed, my life would indeed be complete. *sob* Come ON Canada, cooperate with me…

 Just a word of caution… google pillows at your own risk.


The kids adored the day the mountain tumbled into the house. And so the Pet Rock craze began.


“Now look Frank. I FINALLY got you off the computer to come sit with me. WHY are you suddenly so worked up about answering your email NOW?!?”

Frank didn’t listen and went to collect his 3057 emails. But no fear. His ‘late night workin’ pillow did get used that night. Right along with that right arm looking mighty spiffy while… emailing.


Sofas just aren’t made soft enough any more, so Martha came up with the perfect solution.


I simply couldn’t agree more.

What style of pillow do you favor towards?
Do you sew them?
Find ways to cheat so you don’t have to sew? (why ever would I write THAT in there)
 Let’s see your own pillow creations and favorites in this weekend’s 3rd themed linkup!

  1. I love pillows too! Lol, I always smile when you call them ‘floor throwers’…my boys throw them on the floor and stand or sit on them so they are rarely ever on the furniture.
    Have a fun weekend out and about with your son! 🙂

  2. Do you know that my husband will NEVER go to bed first because he doesn’t want to bother taking all the pillows off the bed? AND we don’t have near as many as you do, Donna! haha…thank you so much for hosting and you have a great weekend with your son!

  3. Thanks for hosting, Donna! There are two local coffee shops here that sell the burlap style coffee sacks for $2. I always end up spending 20 minutes looking through the pile every time I go in b/c I KNOW they make great pillows or slipcovers or something. One of these days I will actually do something with them. 🙂

  4. I am loving all the pillows!! Grain sacks are my favorite. I just scored a box…yes a large box…filled with coffee bean sacks. Loveeee them!!!!
    Coming soon to a pillow near you! Ha!

  5. I so appreciate your love for pillows! They are such a great way to add texture, color, fun, comfort … (the list goes on and on, doesn’t it?) Thank you so much for hosting and letting me play by sharing my Fall mantel. I’m off to get inspired by your other guests! Take care, *Becca*

  6. One of my favourite parts of the weekend is your SNS. So many great ideas. I love the variety of fabrics you use for your pillows, Donna.
    I was so happy to see my simple little dishcloths in your lovely photo on the sidebar. It is fun to see them in your home all the way across our beautiful country. I can hardly wait to show my boys!

  7. I adore pillows. Adore them. They make me happy.

    As I scrolled down and saw all the pillows….I was sighing and swooning and awwwing over ALL of them!

    I might have to go and make some today…after my tea! IF I do, I will link up…but I gotta figure out what color to pop out in my house for Monday. Oy! I’ve tried a few things and like you, I cannot “deal” with it. Isn’t that terrible?? I can’t find a color to just leave out in my home. I love the calm warm tones so much that color… scares me!!!! I’m too fickle or is it “set in my ways”? No. Can’t be that!!!


  8. The living room is very “Pottery Barn” looking. I love it! Also, the assortment of pillows is very funny. I especially liked the pillows that looked like giant stones. Very cool! Thanks for sharing!
