~Pillows from (The French Elements)~

New pillows from Barb at The French Elements . Barb embroiderers the prettiest pillows! they are so soft and family friendly.
I fell in love with the cream and white french floral. I couldn't decide what flower to choose so I purchased one of each!.
They are so similar but different and they seem to complement each other very well.
This pillow is in Italian and says "Bless our Home".
I have been wanting a monogram pillow for sometime now, I love Barb's work so I decided to ask her to design one for me. She said she would and here it is.
I adore it and it's just so soft and it added the touch to our bed I was looking for. Now of course as you all know me so well by now, I will probably move it around the house as I do all my pillows. I love how pillows add the touch of whimsy around the home. What one little pillow can do for a old comfortable chair or couch.

Thank you Barb for making the monogram pillow for me.



Until next time, Forget the days troubles and remember the days blessings! Elizabeth


P.S. My scanner has not been working well, so just as soon as it's fixed I will post the pattern for the white heart crochet afghan and the white and red plaid. Thank you for inquiring about the patterns.

Hi Elizabeth,

Thank you so much for the shout out.
The pillows look beautiful in your home. I love when I am able to see where they will be living-hehe.

Hubby and I also appreciate your words of comfort. I have been trying to get the last minute funeral details worked out, add to the shop and just tie up loose ends.

Have a blessed weekend and again, thank you.

big hugs to both of you,
Barb

Beautiful cushions. Such lovely new editions to your home.

I loved your new monogramed pillows. They look so good with all your other pillows. I love pillows too and you literally have to move them to sit anywhere in my house. I always rush to take them off the bed before hubby gets there...well...cause you know where they would go if I didn't. Loved the one in Italian. I'll have to find out how to say that in French. As always, love the pictures of your home.

Looks like a trouble pit stop over there. I can see myself going crazy and buying pillow after pillow, or worse yet, redecorating a whole room around one. We still have our master bedroom to work on here at Acorn Cottage, so the possibilities are endless! Thanks for the link!

You had asked what brand my paint was, it's by Behr paints, sorry it took me awhile to get back to you , its been a crazy month, but I'm so glad I stopped in , what a visual treat!!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Cynthia

Good morning Gary and Elizabeth, I love the photos of your master bedroom. It looks so relaxing...just like a favorite B&B! So you live in Modesto? I'm a Modestan born and raised! Living in Turlock now, but my folks still live in the same house I grew up in for over 50 years!
I hope you will visit my blog, Marcia
