|These pillows are on my living room sectional. I really adore the bird pillow.|

I bought this pillow at River Market Antique Mall in Kansas City, Missouri. I think I paid $4 for it. I love the fun style plus it represents another one of my obsessions - bingo - not so much playing it (I only do that on cruises) but collecting bingo cards and games. More about that in another blog.
This is one of my splurges. I have been eyeing this pillow for 2 years. I actually asked for it for Christmas one year but didn't get it. I would go every once in a while and look at it online at Uncommon Goods but wouldn't buy it because it was $50. Finally, I decided I just had to have it and I am so happy with it. The cool thing about this pillow is that it is an image of a vintage USA map puzzle - this pillow was made by Found Images out of Wichita Falls, Texas. When I discovered that of course I had to have the puzzle, too. Oh, yeah, USA maps and globes - another obsession!
I picked up this pillow at a garage sale in Saint Joseph, Missouri. I love this pillow - it sits in a vintage wooden chair in the corner of my dining room. The folk art needlepoint and the colors blend perfectly with the decor of that room. Remind me someday to talk about St. Joe, my hometown - they have the very best garage sales EVER!
This patchwork beauty came from the Copper Top Flea Market in Warsaw, Missouri. I paid $7 for it. The pillow was made by the owner's mother. I love the quilty feel and the blend of fabrics and was drawn to the piece of ribbon at the top which has the Cancer and Pisces astrological signs - I'm neither but I thought it was cool. My cat thinks it is pretty sweet for snuggling, also.
