I am loving the Purple Roses and Cream Lace Pillow with Secret Pocket and Purple Ribbons Pillow. I think it would look lovely in pink or red or really any color would be beautiful! I loved looking at all the things you have been working on-they are all wonderful!

What lovely pillows! My favorite is the Cream Lace Heart Shaped Pillow with Handmade Roses and Vintage Touches, because i love shades of white and cream AND vintage touches. I am a follower, but I'm afraid I haven't been visiting anyone much lately. Sometimes I have to make myself stay away, or I'd be at the computer all day! I always love checking in to see what you're up to though.

I think my favorite pillow is the Cream Lace Heart Shaped Pillow with Handmade Roses and Vintage Touches. I usually go for square or oblong pillows with pockets, but I liked the colors and the crocheted roses with the buttons on this one the best! I am a new follower of your beautiful blog.

My favorite pillow is the white lace pillow with the cream and brown lace!! I am a new follower~~ although I have always followed your blog, just not officially!

Simply Debbie said...

MERRY CHRISTMAS DONI AND WHAT GORGEOUS PILLOWS YOU CREATE.
MY FAVORITE IS THE LAVENDAR AND PURPLE WITH THE SECRET POCKET BECAUSE I COULD LEAVE LITTLE LOVE TOKENS IN THERE FOR MY HUSBAND BUT
THE GARNET HEART PILLOW WITH THE BOW WOULD BE WHAT I WOULD HAVE TO CHOOSE BECAUSE IT IS IN THE COLOR PALETTE OF MY GUEST ROOM AND YOUR GUESTS SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE THE BEST. IT WOULD BE NICE IF IT HAD A SECRET POCKET AS I COULD LEAVE LITTLE TOKENS FOR MY GUESTS EACH NIGHT THEY WERE HERE.
I AM YOUR NEWEST FOLLOWER BUT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO A FRIENDSHIP IN 2011.

My favorite is the pink and chocolate pillow that can be used as a ring bearer pillow. I too love your crocheted roses. They are such a neat embellishment. Congratulations on opening your Etsy store!

Deborah said...

I also like the one where you used vintage embroidery and vintage floral fabric. Putting it all together makes fabulous pillows.

I'm a past follower. My faovirte is the http://www.etsy.com/listing/63248093/cream-lace-heart-shaped-pillow-with because i like the way the perfect heart shape isn't disrupted by lace edges on just one side like some of the others, which makes it asymmetrical. I also like that everything (the lace, the buttons, the details) goes in one direction (save that rhinestone) and that there are less colors on it; maybe stick with just two colors for each pillow so it's easy to coordinate with room colors? And I also love the huuuge curlicue lace!

My favorite colors are light blue, pink, and white.

Oh Doni- your pillow creations are fabulous! And what great news that you now have an Etsy shop!
I am a current follower, and love you blog. I also love your pillows ;-) My favorite (although this was not an easy choice to make) is the one entitled "Creme lace heart shaped pillow with handmade roses and vintage touches". It is perfectly lovely, and the vintage touches are so pretty- my very favorite being the fabulous rhinestone and pearl button; I just love that!! The pretty pink and brown floral material on the back is awesome, too. Just a gorgeous pillow!!
Thank you for another chance to win GREAT blog candy! Your giveaways are amazing!

I have been following your blog for a while now. I love your pillows. I was drawn to the cream pillow with lavender and black roses but do really like the mostly cream, oh I don't know they are all beautiful. I would love to win your giveaway. My bedroom has brown and lavender one with those colors would be amazing.
