Tapestry fragment pillow…..


A couple of months ago I picked up this altar tapestry fragment.

I knew as soon as I spotted it,

it would make a gorgeous pillow.

Here you can see it rolled up with rosary beads draped over it.

I didn’t have the heart at first to cut it up into a pillow.

Life is short though and treasures are meant to be enjoyed not tucked away.

So, I bought an inexpensive

velvet pillow and applied the fragment to the top.




After cutting the fragment in half, I have just enough

left over to make a second  pillow.






I also picked up this little French

marble topped table the other day at an antique shop.

It has made in France stenciled on the bottom……

look at those cute little legs!!!




A little polish cleaned it up……

for $85 I think I got a pretty good deal?!?!




Have a great week!

This little table is exactly what I've been looking for in my living room. And the pillow looks so pretty on your couch, it's very unique.

Happy September!

How pretty! I love it on your velvet pillows. What a great idea that was. I noticed you scattered those around so they balance everything out. Very nice! Love your new marble topped table too. The tapestry and marble really complement one another.

Fantastic find on that table! Wow, marble top, great legs, and all for $85. The fragment pillow is also fabulous. Great find again! I like the way you sewed it to the top of the velvet. It will take less wear and tear since it's not seemed in as a pillow.

That is a beautiful pillow and using an all ready made velvet pillow cover was an excellent idea!
