Three Amigos

It was with great anticipation that I awaited the arrival of amigo #3.  The final addition to my front porch pillow pile.

Amigo #1 had been created on a lazy summer afternoon when I hadn't felt like doing much.  The super cinchy bandana pillow took it's place on the front porch that day.

Amigo #2 was a loving gift from my dear friend Kathy.  She and Teena run the super successful Vintage Market furniture shop in an old milk barn.  Kathy had run across a rusty coffee can tucked away in an old foundation.   It had been stashed with neatly washed and folded 10 lb. sugar sacks that some farmer's wife had likely put away thinking they just may come in handy... 

...and handy they are.  Kathy has fashioned them into all kinds of wonderful things. 

 Some left over quilt batting and twine at the top were all it took to create Amigo #2.

 But I was beyond excited when the box arrived brining the final Amigo to complete my pillow trifecta.

For months I had  been drooling all over the pillows in Linda's Etsy shop.  I finally gave in to their drop cloth perfection and ordered my very own custom made lumbar pillow.

It was so fun to open up the box with its little paint chip tag.  

And I have to say that I am completely smitten with these adorable rosettes.

The pillow patiently waited on my desk for it's big front porch debut.

The amigos are together at last, playing nicely on my front porch lounge.  

An all I can hope is that we have a few more days of front porch weather around here.

Because it won't be long before the three amigos will be taking up residence inside.

Have a pillowy day!

PS:  This is not a sponsored post.  I just really love the Drop Cloth Design pillow collection and Linda's blog it all started with paint too. 

 (But bless you if you even though my blog was big enough for sponsored posts)
