I gave myself a deadline of May first
to get my pillows in my booth!
Didn't quite make it,
but I did get a huge first load installed today.
I finished stuffing 53 pillows today...
and 49 went in to the booth!
Plus...this adorable wall hanging...a vintage classroom
find from a local thrift store. I couldn't pass this up...50 squares of burlap with the outline of a state and either the state bird or flower...it has so much charm.
Its looks as if the students made it. It is barely hanging on...dry rot has taken its toll, but I had to have it!! Perfect for a backdrop don't you think?
On to my day in the basement...
Two orders of bulk feather and down pillow inserts...
waiting in my basement.
The stack of boxes was over 6 feet tall!
Huge boxes almost 4 feet wide.
Here they are! Bagged and ready for their trip to the booth!
Put a few more fixtures in a couple of weeks ago....
trying to get everything ready for
my vintage and antique finds and of course "the pillows"!
I have beautiful German grain sack pillows in production now, along with some adorable printed
vintage French flour sacks,
which are similar to our American sacks.
I also have found some
awesome Burlap style bags from Canada!
All coming soon!!
Hopefully one day soon, I'll figure out how to take a good pic,
and transfer it here with better resolution!
There is a lot to learn! :)
Don't forget the victims of recent tornadoes!
They need our prayers and assistance!
