Here's a group shot. I found the lovely floral box, cute little flower pot, vintage floral curtains, vintage floral fabric, and new fabric all at Country Roads. The sign holder was found at a funky junk shop/costume shop in Fallbrook. The textured/paintable wallpaper was found at Rusty Creek Boutique, also in Fallbrook. I got the cute pink and cream dish towels at Serendipty in Temecula. The stack of vintage linens came from my Aunt. Some I think belonged to my Grandma.

In my last post I mentioned that I was having trouble coming up with a giveaway idea to celebrate my 200th post. First off, I can hardly believe I've been at this for 200 posts (actually this is the 203rd post). So, since this was a special occasion, and because I really love to do giveaways, I wanted to make sure it was something special.
In the past, I've given away vintage wallpaper packets, crafting supplies, a little pretty tussy mussie, etc., but, I've never given away something I made. So, I decided I would make something special for one lucky reader of my blog. Here it is!
I made this pretty pillow using a bouquet of some of my favorite vintage Glen Court Barkcloth, a little ticking stripe fabric, antique lace and some creamy pom pom fringe. The back is a simple paisley pattern and I made this pillow cover to be removeable so it can be washed easily. I guess I should also mention that the pillow insert is made of feathers.
I think it turned out lovely and am thinking how easy it would be to just keep it. Doesn't it look cute in my little blue chair? Just kidding! If you would like a chance to win this pillow, just leave a comment on this post. I will draw a winner bright and early Monday morning, March 2nd. Wow, can't believe it's almost March. Where did February go?
FYI, Debbie over at My Shabby Roses is having her 100th post giveaway. Drop by her blog to enter to win a fab giftie.
I want to again thank you all for coming here to check out my little ramblings and pictures. Whether you leave comments or not, just knowing you stopped by to see what I've been up to warms my heart. Here's to the next 200!
