Sprucing Up

On Sunday I had to park a couple of blocks away from the church building because of the School hosting their Country Carnival.  I parked the car in front of a little house that just made me stop and admire.  It had the sweetest front porch with 2 little red rockers just like mine.  But what was captivating were the turquoise chevron pillows on the chairs.  They just made the porch "pop"!

So on my way home, I made a little stop at the fabric store and came home with 2 yards of this:

Making little envelope flap pillows takes about 15 minutes if you don't do any fancy trimming. For outside, I didn't.

Come and sit and join me for a cup of Pumpkin Spice coffee?


  1. Excellent, they really look great on those red rockers too!

  2. Wow! They really do make those red chairs pop! Great job.

  3. that looks great! yay! so lovely!

  4. I would LOVE to join you on the porch; I love porches, love rocking chairs, and would no doubt love pumpkin spice coffee too, if I could get it. And it's the little surprises/adventures that are so satisfying, like seeing the idea, finding the fabric, and creating the effect so quickly.

  5. You had a great idea! The fabric is very pretty and goes well with red. Yum, the coffee is great, too. HA!
