When I saw this post from Kate a few weeks ago, I fell in love with her linen cross pillow cover.
I rushed right over to Sweet Tea and Linen's Etsy Shop and ordered one for myself.
I also ordered one of Carolyn's linen and canvas Union Jack pillow covers...

I love it Carolyn ~ thank you!!

I love how it looks with one of my favorite pillows, and helps to whiten up my love seat.

My lil' white pumpkins are turning a bit yellow.
I am starting to feel ready to deck the halls for the holidays...

My tradition has always been to start the weekend after Thanksgiving.

Which will give me time to finish up Jake's room makeover.
I think my new linen cross pillow just might end up in his room.
Jim is installing the new closet doors as I type, so tomorrow I can paint them.

I brought some wintery and holiday items in to my booth last weekend and I sold quite a bit this past week.
The two beautiful handmade hand hooked pillows sold quickly...

The left over Advent calendar I made last year sold as well...

 So, I have been busy gathering up some more treasures to fill in the spaces and am in the midst of making another Advent calendar for the Holiday Market Open House and Sale at the shop.
Here is a treasure I did find for the Open House...

This old beauty belonged to my friend's great aunt who was a flapper back in the day.
I love it!

I am sharing with Timewashed for Blissful Whites Wednesday.
Thank you for hosting Becky!!

As always I appreciate you stopping by for a visit!
Have a blissful day!

Love your new pillows! And the ones in your booth too! I'd have a hard time giving up that advent calendar. You've got some fun stuff in your booth!

I imagine you are keeping pretty busy at this time of year. I like those hooked pillows you sold. Definitely great for the holiday season without being too Christmasy. Hope you are having a good week. Tammy

Love your pillows! Isn't it amazing how much a few new pillows can change the look of a sofa? I need to change mine up, too.

Great pillow! It is so fun to get handmade things.

Burlap Luxe said...

Love the pillow sandi,
I too fell in love with kates designs when she painted a piece of wood with the union jack along with her chest of drawers. It was then I knew that I had to create one for my daughter Hannahs room, being she has French and english in her it would be a perfect statement piece for her quite room.

Perhaps you saw the post I did a few back...go see what I did with making a pillow shame with white and grey linen, being our home is white and grey.

You my friend are off to a good start, oh how I love how the pillow matches your sofa perfectly.

lots of holiday inspiration to you and all we take from you home with us.


Ps. come see my Union Jack and comment me on my latest post I may not remember to check my older posting if you comment there. its so much fun sharing Union Jack, Englands most popular design Trend for this year, its on everything from chairs, sofa, chests, clothing...everything you can imagine

love Kates CROSS pillow, its the next one I make, purhaps during the holidays when all is calm around here.

Gorgeous pillow!!!
Your booth is such a refreshing adventure each time I see what you've been up to!!! Much continued success, dear friend! My MoMa always put the Christmas Tree up after Thanksgiving dinner...but as for me. . .I wish we could have Christmas decor all year through! Oh, yeah!!! I'm busy already!!!

Unknown said...

Love the pillows Sandi!! I counted 13 pillows in my living room, never too many pillows.
I get my tree the day after Thanksgiving. Sometimes it's hard to wait but I make myself wait.
Your home looks so lovely.

Patti's Artful Design said...

I am loving your new pillows too...very nice. I, especially like those beautiful hydrangeas in your header...just lovely. I never tire of this flower whether fresh or dried. Thank you for stopping by, Sandi! It is always good to hear from you. Have a wonderful holiday season:)

Polly said...

fabulous pillow!! looks great on your sofa!!

Robin Johnson said...

Your new pillow is lovely. I like how it pops out at you from the color of the sofa.

I normally wait until after Thanksgiving to start my christmas decorating too but this year I'm having a hard time waiting. I may cheat just a bit and decorate my bedroom since no one will see it at Thanksgiving. LOL.

Susan EvelynAndRose said...

What a great Union Jack pillow Sandi! It looks perfect in your serene living room, but I can see how it would fit into your new look for Jake's room, too. I can't wait to start the Xmas decorating, too!
Oh, and I just love those advent calendars you make - fabulous!

Old Time Cindy said...

Like the style of your pillows! Like the whole room! And your Advent calendar is adorable.
