A Romantic Touch.

When I was a girl, my grandmother used to make these pillows.
I've always wanted one, but have not seen them for years.
Just in the past few months, they've been showing up on blogs, and online shops.

I ordered this gorgeous plush velvet pillow from Vintage Rose Collection.
I love it paired with the pretty throw from Shabbyfufu.
Both pieces lend a romantic touch to the room.
I like it!
Enjoy your weekend!
I'll be joining Courtney at French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.......and
Kerry Anne at Shabby Art Boutique for Shabbilicious Friday.


  1., so pretty and SO YOU! Looks so great with the throw! Good for you!

  2. I remember that pillow and even think I made one at one time. It is just perfect for your romantic touch. I love throw pillows and have way too many here, but I like to switch them around almost as much as I like moving furniture.

  3. I remember those! Looks so pretty, Debbie! Luxury in the shabby realm :)

  4. That pillow is lovely and does look perfect with your ShabbyFufu throw! I guess that old saying is true, something like "everything old is new again". Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Hi Debbie, my grandmother made these pillows too. I remember how my mother did the markings for her and then nana sewed them beautifully. I have a few in the square design to this day that I bring out in the fall because they are corduroy in a gold and burgundy color. She did rounds too and I wish I had a few of those but sadly don't.
    I do have her original pattern packet from the 50 or 60's. One day I should give it a try.
    Love yours in pink. So shabby and romantic for your pretty home.
    Have a nice weekend. Blessings, cm

  6. Beautiful Debbie. Looks great with the throw from Janet. Have a great week end.

  7. Debbie,
    Romantic and lush ... Ahhhh Velvet, textural joy. I remember the round velvet pillows andI have always loved them. Like in the old 40's period movies often seen adding personality. Yours is beautifully detailed. Thinking one might look pretty in my French inspired guest room on the chair.
    Debbie your Pink is so pretty, enjoy the weekend.

  8. I don't believe it. I was looking on you tube for some ideas on table runners and came across a video on how to make this pillow. I saved it so one day to make one. Great minds think alike.

  9. This pillow is absolutely a such beautiful romantic piece. It looks perfect in your sweet corner.Enjoy your weekend.

  10. Hi Debbie
    I remember those pillows!!! I love them. Love velvet so much. The color is so pretty and it looks great in your space. I haven't seen those pillows since I was a kid. So glad they are coming around again. I would certainly snatch one up if I saw one
    enjoy your weekend

  11. Wow Debbie, that pretty pillow is gorgeous! I'll have to check out her site.
    BTW, Hobby Lobby has fabric that matches your throw. I just had to grab a couple of yards to cover a round table in my booth.


  12. Oh my goodness, Debbie, I haven't seen one of those pillows in ages. So very pretty! I'm sure my grandmother had them as well! Beautiful with your Shabbyfufu throw!. Enjoy a beautiful weekend! Blessings, Cindy

  13. This is so beautiful--I just have to get one of those throws from Shabby Fufu--every time I see one they look so beautiful!

  14. Wow - I absolutely adore the pillow, and I've never saw them before - where have I been? Your arrangement with the throw, pillow, and chair are stunning... I know it brings you much joy to have such pretties gracing your room! :)

  15. That pillow is so pretty. I wonder how they make them?

    Enjoy your weekend sweetie! xo

  16. Janet the hopeless romantic, and her throw is no exception to the romance she shares. It looks great with the pillow, and YES! My grandmother had these same pillows in velvet and silk Iin her two guest rooms, so nostolgic, and by adding a bit of heirloom to a rooms space it tends to soften the harder edges of what it's in company with.

    The throw debbie was a perfect choice for you, it blends beautifully with your angelic feel of wings.

    A week ahead of you where all that you touch inspires your home and the new season.

    This was a good start here to my early waking and long drive, love to take I'm a bit of beauty when starting out my early mornings.

    Fine day to you to.
