Real Men Love Pillows.....

Or at least they fake like they do.
The bed takes a little longer to make, and it takes a little longer to get into, but so far I love it and I'm thinkin' TL is a very patient man because he's never complained about the plethora of pillows on the bed.

I like it because my bedroom isn't big and my bed is pretty much the focal point and so hey, why not emphasize it? The real thing looks better than the photo, but there's lousy light because of rain.
And I made these pillows all.by.myself.
They were super easy. I just googled, "How to make a pillow cover"
And I found a great tutorial.
See, I have been doing something besides blog....

So save a little money and make your own designer pillows.
'Cuz we all know our men just love them!

Wow. First of all, I love that you kept that red and white quilt!
And second, I'm a pillow gal too! I love 'em!
Your handmade pillow turned me a slight shade of green...I need to learn how to do that, as I've volunteered to make 4 floor pillow-covers for my daughter's class.
Thanks so much!

Your bed and pillows look great! Don't you just love all the tutorials and directions on the internet to do stuff?! It's great! My hubby is patient with all the pillows on our bed too but he does tease me about it sometimes. Funny how guys aren't so crazy about lots of pillows. I've seen jokes about it on TV before too. lol

You really are so talented. Spanish, gardening, sewing . . . it's a good thing I'm not a jealous person!

I think Bret actually likes pillows. He told me once that I put the pillows on the bed wrong and then showed me how they're supposed to go.
talk about a tutorial.

This is so funny because recently I have been shopping for more pillows on my bed. The biggest problem is my husband is not so considerate of my "pillowing" and when he makes the bed they are still just thrown on the floor!!

I've always had a great desire to learn to make pillows - they brighten up any room and I could never afford as many as I would like to have - bravo for giving me such a great example!
