Pillow Parade.


Pillow covers crocheted by my Great Grandmother.

A very bright pillow given to me by my Mother.


A pillowcase that I made featuring Australian product advertisements. I know it is upside down, sorry, but it is Down Under after all!



A lavender pillow bought for $1 at the school fete.




My sister in law made this pillowcase for me for our anniversary as I love Australian animals.




The top pillow was made by my Godmother to bear our rings in our wedding ceremony. The bottom pillow was embroidered by a family friend for the birth of our first child.




My Great Aunt painted and made this pillow for the birth of our third child.

You know, I was looking at your post thinking about how I do not have hardly a pillow, especially one that means something....and then I started giggling to myself about how you don't have an alligator egg either. I know they don't really compare but it is kind of funny isn't it? Thank you for sharing your pictures.

What a lovely collection of cushions & pillows you have ! What makes them even more special, is the fact that each one tells a story and means something to you. Thanks for sharing them with us :)
