Mittens always finds the cozy corners

Black and White

Pillow Note:

Karen-- I think this is kind of the first time I have been able to see your lovely home--

You are always so great about showing us your new projects...but your home is just as I thought it would be. Lovely like the person who lives there.

Gorgeous.
I especially love the black and white. (would go great in my Paris Bath) :)

Have a great week!

I love pillows too! You sure have some special ones, they are all beautiful but the one with the hare is a tad more special to me. Love your cat acting! If there was a play with a pillow character in it, he sure would get the role! Have a great day!

Vee said...

I love the look of pillows, too. So I enjoyed seeing all of your pretty pillows. What I don't enjoy about them is that they seem to multiply and what does one do with a pillow when one doesn't wish to use it? See the dilemma I'm facing. There are seven pillows in the living room, which I retrieve from the floor on a regular basis. Your Mittens is a very sweet pillow.

\Oh I love all the pillows and the black and white one that matched your spread..You can't say you have no place to lay your head.. A beautiful blog

Sharon said...

I love all your beautiful pillows but the one that won my heart was the one with the bunny. Did you paint that one? Sharon

Beautiful pillows..it makes sense that Mittens thought that she was one too!

These are gorgeous! From one pillow lover to another. I especially like the one that's in the set. How pretty they are together.

I can tell you like pillows. The black and white quilt with the beautiful pillows just took my breath away! LOVE IT!

LOL! Cats sure do know where the most comfortable places to sit are!

Charlene said...

Pretty pillows! I wish I had that lap cover right now. My legs are freezing in this office. Grabbing a pretty lap cover like that is so much prettier than thinking "I wish I had my silk long johns on". Have a great week.

Hi Karen
When I saw that you had joined my party I couldn't wait to see what you would create and I wasn't disappointed. I LOVE that pillow with the bunny on your table and of course having one made by your sister with a quilt to match....well it doesn't get much better than that. Thanks for coming to tmy pillow party.
Hugs, Rhondi

Karen! I LOVE THE PILLOW WITH THE BUNNIES! What a very fun event! How is New England fairing under this cold blanket of chill? We are hunkering down, but still chugging along! Bisous to you dear friend, Anita

Annmaree said...

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

They are all so very beautiful. Thank-you so much for the gifts for our daughter's family. They are so very nice. The kids will love them all...m.

Dearest Karen,
Thank you for always coming by to leave encouraging comments! I have to tell you that my blog, just as like most people, has evolved. Writing is like that, especially for those of us who enjoy it and try to improve it. But I want to tell you that you influenced my blog writing "style." When I first started, I just depended on my poor attempt of photography and long narrative. Now, from YOU, I learned that the RIGHT photos are worth 1000 words, and that the words I do choose to write must be few, exact, deliberate and powerful. YOU taught me that. Have a beautiful, winter day! Bisous, Anita

Hi Karen,
The pillows are all so pretty. I really should make some. Most of mine are ones I embroidered. Really like your new card too.
Thankyou for the link to Fairy Graphics. I have used up a truck load of ink already.
What kind of glue do you use for your cards?
Know what you mean about missing your kitty, I still mine and its been ten years. Should probably get over it pretty soon. NOT.
All that lace I got on my site? Well I'm off to start rolling it up, I got the box ready for the give-away, now I have to roll up all that is left. Alot!
Nancy Jo
