Pillow Talk

ONCE UPON A TIME, long long ago,
there was a blog and Etsy shop, run by
THE SISTERS, KARI AND KIJSA
and they LOVED DIET COKES

They also loved ART and one day, I happened into their ETSY shop
and fell head over heels in love with their 
RABBIT....... KIJSA'S artwork.
I purchased their little linen towel with THE RABBIT, sitting on it, all smug and cute...
and if THAT wasn't enuf,
the cute sistahs  added a saucy little black bow to it all.




Right now, the rabbit is  looking cute as can be
hanging on the china cabinet door.










 and, then came the matching PILLOW from a sweet blogger, KRISTINA.
(I have lost KRISTINA.....when I find her again, I'll be sure to list her blog link)
After I stopped bawling and squalling and blew my nose,
I popped that little rabbit right in this black chair.
Heeey, Rabbit ....(your first name isn't EDDIE, is it?)
you look mighty fine there.
In fact, HE shows up all around SWEET NOTHINGS.

Well, folks, KIJSA is making more adorable pillows...
out. of. burlap
O HONEY

 If you saw my post the other day, you may have noticed that cute pillow back there in the black chair....
79416
I actually meant to publish THIS post about the pillow BEFORE the one about the coffee tablescape...
but, remember, I am OLDEN...
and tend to FORGET THINGS...:( 
She will put ANYthing you might want on it and I chose my
ZIP CODE....
I am so in love, I can't stand it !!!!




 I am ROCKIN' this pillow all over the place.



I can't wait for you to see how cute the BACK is.....








Are you lovin' it, too ?








All buttoned up so cute....
in the KIJSA  STYLE......








What would you put on a pillow like this?
Mr. Sweet was REALLY impressed with the ZIP CODE and thinks it is pretty
awesome....
me, too. ♥♥

We are now thinking ADDRESS....or a favorite Bible verse...(JOHN 3:16)
an anniversary date...
so many wonderful things can go on these awesome pillows.....
go to her site and check it out
IF YOU LOVE BURLAP......
 You will be blown out of the water, they are so cute.


I am going to enjoy this pillow just as much as I have 
EDDIE  RABBIT.
Thanks, KIJSA......you did an awesome job on it.
xoxo bj

What a great idea- love the zip code on your pillow...and when you get REALLY olden you can strap it on your back when you go out so that someone can return you to the general area you live in~

I love your bunnies!!!! How cute! xoDiana

laurie said...

beautiful photos, what a lovely job you do, that is a lovely pillow, the rabbit is so sweet , and the zip code is a great idea, I love the graphics, so bold and are perfect on that pillow!

Vee said...

Wonderful idea to select your zip code. I'd never have thought of that. I'm thinking a favorite radio station's call letters or one's old telephone number. So many meaningful ways to go with this. Aren't you glad to have Kari back in Blogdom?!

Kelly said...

Oh my goodness! I remember reading her blog. I didn't realize she was still out there! I read Karianne's blog all the time. I'm going to check out her site. I LOVE, LOVE your new zipcode pillow. I may have to indulge myself with one. Thanks for sharing!
