A Pillow Story

I just had to share a fun little blogging story with you!  A couple of weeks ago I did a guest post as part of  Classic Casual Home's Pillow Addict Series.

My post included a picture of a needlepoint pillow I had purchased on Ebay for our guest room.  I mentioned that I was still on the hunt for another one.


Well, I was contacted by the sweetest lady, Sandy from Connecticut, who happened to read the post and also happened to have two needlepoint pillows for sale. (Very reasonably, I might add!). She sent me some pictures of them, and they were perfect!!

Long story short... Sandy's pillows are now residing comfortably in my house.



Aren't they pretty?

This blogging thing is an interesting beast! You can make new friends all over the world, and you never know who might be reading. So, I'd really like to meet Jason Bateman. Just sayin'. In case any of you happen to be close personal friends with him...

Don't forget to enter my giveaway before Friday!!

  10. This is great! I'm with you... it's an amazing world!!! I feel so grateful for having a blog and know so many great people.

    I really understand what you're going through. My 6 year old had the same problem last year. The doctor wanted the same thing and we decided to wait a couple of weeks to see if it would go away. He had "bumped" his had at school and that's why he was having these migraines. We just found that out after talking a lot with him and he finally remembered. The migraines went way and we didn't have to do any exams. But I get how you're feeling. I'll be praying for him and be assured that God is protecting him.

    Many hugs to you, sweetie.
