I Luv ♥s

I'm not sure how long this ♥ shape has been the official symbol of Valentine's Day and February but in honor of this sweet little shape and what it means I will be sharing my ♥ for hearts with you in the next series of posts. I hope you enjoy them.


In a previous post (here) I shared a little vignette that included a sweet little framed button heart I made a few years back. Well ever since I made it I have been wanting to translate the idea onto a pillow and finally last week I did.
I used a ton of vintage white, beige and cream buttons to create this little monochromatic pillow. I ♥ how it came out.
Needless to say there was a lot of sewing involve... Phew! :-) But it was lots of fun and worth it.
So what do you think?

Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
I always ♥ the company.

Hugs and Kisses,

I think it's very pretty and you'll treasure it for years to come.

Good Morning Ana, It is adorable and it did take the stitching, but it is well worth it. It is something that you will treasure because you made it. I have been catching up with my friends before I head out the door to the doctors. Have a great day. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Good Morning,
I love your button heart!! I bet you sewed your tiny fingers to the bone. That's a lot of buttons, but it sure did turn out great! and such a wonderful way to use old buttons. I have a tin full of buttons (maybe I will make a button picture).
I finished the quilt and Gary is going to drop it off to my quilter today. Went to the fabric store to pick up a few more yards of flip flop fabric for a quilt for Aleena my grand-daugher. So the quilt for Aleena will be my next project.
Sending you love...and hugs... Elizabeth

Ana, thank you sweetly for taking the time to grace your beauty over at my place, and best taking the time to leav a comment.

I love your heart pillow, my daughter loves hearts. I hearted myself out a few years back when I was hearting everything.
It's a perfect reminder to enjoy the kisses, hugs, and hearts for this beautiful romantic month.

Thank you for sharing your pillow of buttons, I also want to make mention I just love your slipped chair and those cute little box pleats around the hem, did you make your slip?

I am going back now to look a bit longer getting to know you a little better :)

Happy V-day!

I love it, but you have more patience than me!! OMG sewing on all of those buttons must have taken forever!!! That's why blogging is so wonderful, we totally understand the time that goes into creating a piece!

I think it is absolutely charming and why didn't I sew my buttons onto a bigger piece of linen. Darn! Your pillow is cute as a button!
