What I have to show you today isn't anything spectacular and I don't even remember who I "borrowed" the idea from, but when I seen it, I knew that it was something I could do with a sweet pillow I found at a garage sale.
The one I seen actually had their pillow wrapped in a piece of cellophane and, as stinkin' cute as that was, I thought it could be somewhat noisy and easily finger printed up. You would need to replace it yearly. Since I'm basically lazy &
I came up with what I thought was the perfect solution.
I wrapped the pillow in a piece of tulle and just tied it on the ends even though I thought the pillow was darling just by itself. My daughter wanted to keep it, but unfortunately, you can't make any money if you keep everything you like and you will run out of room in your house too. Trust me on that one. And as tempting as it is to cheat and just sell it the way I found it, it helps to add some little something to kick it up a notch. I like to call it "simple with a WOW factor."
It turns out that my daughter must have the same taste as many other little girls close to her 9 years of age because every one of them that walked by it at the craft show wanted it. The one that ended up with it must have visited it 4 or 5 times before finally making it hers. I felt kinda of guilty for not letting my own daughter enjoy it, but goodness, she gets so much as it is. You have to draw the line sometimes. I'd like to believe it's in good hands.
I'm linking up to the following parties:
