Whimsical and Pretty

I decided to look for something different this time when I went to my local thrift shop. I wanted to look at pillows and pillowcases. I usually don't because It just gives me a weird feeling of where it may have been. But I found pillows with covers that were removable and pillows that could be washed in the washer.
I love the detail on this pillow cover, it washed up so well. 
I don't know what pattern you call this. It's not battenburg ????
And look at this cute little doggie. It reminded me sooo much of my girls I couldn't leave it behind.
This too was a little white pillow with removable case. And the whimsical pillow, it just says it all.
 
I met with a Realtor on Monday and she suggested a termite report for disclosure for the house when it goes on the market and so she can quote me a marketable price for my parents home. This is going to be interesting. The house is livable, but has a lot of things wrong with it. So, it's going to be done with a lot of fingers crossed.

Well I heard from the Realtor regarding the termites. There aren't any. YAY !! 
The House will go on the market at the end of this month. Enough time to clean out the furniture I left behind. Now I have to get off my butt and refinish the dresser Ugh. The house will be sold AS-IS, due to it being an Estate/Probate property. That means no painting.

I love the pillows! I look for down pillows when I'm at the thrift store and then I can make my own covers for them. It's a lot less expensive.

I am cracking up at this post. No I'm not laughing AT you but I'm laughing because I always felt the same way about the pillows and cases. Then one day I thought, hey, I'm sleeping on the same things when I go into a hotel so why not buy them and wash them up.

It's hard to find cute ones at the thrift stores in my area.

You found some darling ones.
Hugs,
Joanne

Hi Glenda :)

Thank you ;)

I love that pillow. I have a lace bed pillow that is almost in shreds, but I can't give it up because it's so beautiful to me. Cute fishing pillow too and I love tha little doggie :)

I'm so happy to hear about your parents house. It must be hard to deal with though. Good luck with it.

I remember my mom having those kinds of pillows. Whenever I doze off in our sofa and use those kinds of pillows, it always leave an embedded marks on my face. :)

The pillows you found are great. I don't know what kind of lace the first one is, but the second one is battenburg lace. Good finds!
