As a young mom, with my four little chickens gathered around me, all under one roof, I couldn’t even imagine sending my kids to middle school much less the thought that one of them might eventually move 1500 miles away.
But that’s what happened. A few months after my oldest daughter Courtney graduated from College she told us she was moving to California.
Wait. WAIT! Does this has anything to do with white pillows? Best read in the same voice as “Is this a kissing book?” 🙂
Well, I’ll tell you…
Courtney loves all things vintage and chippy, shabby and white.
Not long after she married she asked if I’d make her some big white fluffy pillows.
This pillow is about 24″ square with large ruffles cascading down the front.
The double ruffle box pillow is about 27″ square with a row of ruffles on each side.
They’re referred to as “box” pillows because of the band of fabric which separates the front and back of the pillow creating a boxed effect. Like a sofa cushion. This band is 2″ wide with 1.5″ ruffles on each side. Tutorial coming soon!
Both styles were made from a medium weight, home-decor cotton.
The apple green velvet pillow is from Urban Outfitters.
This lovely bedroom is Drew and Courtney’s guest bedroom.
Our guest bedroom this past Christmas while we spent a wonderful week in the sunny Central Coast of California for the holidays. We loved it!
And such a great place to visit!
But tell me truthfully, does a Mom ever become accustomed to the fact that one of her chickens lives 1500 miles away? 🙂
