Who doesn’t love PILLOWS?!!!! They are like jewelry for your home!  Pillows are an inexpensive way to change the look of a room.

They are a home decorator’s best friend! Pillows can add different styles to a room.

Be aware that pillows can be bought as a pillow cover with a separate insert. Many advantages of pillow covers. Save the inserts.

Choose down inserts for indoor use. Great places to find down inserts- Ikea, Pottery Barn, Calico Corner

Don’t just think about pillows on the furniture, think about floor pillows for a pretty decor punch!

Barb, a blog reader and podcast listener reminds us not to use detergent with phosphorus if we make pillows using fusible webbing. Thanks, Barb… you are the best!!!!
