Ring Around the Rosie

A pillow full of posies

It all started with the cushion pictured below...

I made this one for my Momma for Christmas.
{As well as this Christmas-y one.}

They were so much fun to make that I had to make a couple for myself.

I had some aqua daisy grannies left over from another project so I added some pink & white to them & voila! a daisy granny cushion!

I love the pink tassels so, so much!
We'd had some very grey weather for quite a long time & these colorful makes were just the ticket for keeping my mood cheerful. They're like Vit. D for your eyes! 

When it's so grey & colorless out-of-doors the bright little things indoors are that much more dear.
I had to pause and snap a pic of these pretty dishes drying on a cute towel.

A Dollar Tree store recently opened up in my neck of the woods & I couldn't resist this confetti-like multicolor glitter nail polish! So fun! I can't wait to try these nail sprinkles over all sorts of base colors.

Unfortunately, we have all been quite sick in my house.
Mom made us some delicious chicken stock & soup.
Thankfully the sun has come out this week & I've been happily soaking up its rays like a cat sunning itself in the light streaming through the windows.
{And, unfortunately coughing up the human version of hairballs, but ewwwww! you didn't really want to know that. Sorry.😝 It sounded funnier in my head than it probably actually came across to you poor readers.}

One good thing about convalescing is that you can pick up a poor neglected project that was left languishing in the to do pile for some reason or another. Hopefully I'll be able to finish this pastel Victory Jumper in time for warmer days in Spring.

Another good thing is that you have time to write a blog post which you had been meaning to do for a bit. πŸ˜‰

Stay cozy & well!

  1. Michelle,

    Your crocheted cushions are delightful! They remind me of pillows my Nan crocheted for me when I was little. : )

    So sorry to hear you have been under the weather. Chicken soup is always the best this time of year. I made some this week and it is a truly cozy dinner.


    1. Thank you, Sarah! I love their old fashioned charm. 😊 You're right it is such a cozy dinner.

  2. i'm sorry you've been unwell..
    hoping you're in tip top shape soon!
    beautiful pillows! happy things.

    1. Thanks, Sherry! I seem to be on the mend now. I think the cheery makes might be helping too! 😊

  3. Everything looks so cheerful! I can't wait to go to the new Dollar Tree. And I just love all your pillows!

    1. Thanks Aims! πŸ˜™ You'll love it! πŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ

  4. What a great way to keep your spirits up during our particularly dreary January! Hope you're all completely recovered soon! <3

    1. Thanks, Lily! 😊 Hope you're all doing well!

  5. TMI kiddo. :D Sorry to hear that y'all have been ill. Chicken soup really does help. I love it. I'll be spending the week of Valentine's up north a ways with A and kids. But I'm up for an antique store trip next week if anyone is willing and able. And well! Share that idea and mull it over.

    1. Heehee sorry! πŸ˜† Ooo! I'll pass that along for sure!

  6. Hello, I have browsed through some of your posts. You have a lovely blog. I thought I'd comment on this post because tea cups are so sweet to me, and I am a collector of them. These pillows are delightful, especially the rose one.

    Me and my daughters also have a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow, and I would certainly follow you as well. It's nice to meet new friends. I see Sherry on here and Stephanie, both dear blog friends.

    I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
