in which i share the etsy love

thought i'd share a morsel of frivolous fun on a friday. {snicker}

amidst a rough-and-tumble, first day back to school after a long break on monday, this beauty arrived on my doorstep.  happy mail, indeed!  a gift from my thoughtful friend, erin.  ( p.s. thoughtfulness is something highly, highly value in people. not gift-giving but the kind of thoughtfulness that tucks words into the memory bank for later use.) she remembered that i love all things deer-related.  she saw deer fabric. her first thought was, "megan must have that pillow!"

that deer fabric was/is the backing to that lovely pillow below.  the first time i saw a paisley sprouts pillow was at craft weekend and i oohed & ahhed when meg put that baby on her couch.  i do believe that becky flew home and ordered two the next day!  owning one was on my wish list and my sweet friend made my wish come true.  {{thank you, again, erin. :)}

look at the straight lines on that thing!  allison of paisley sprouts is one amazing seamstress.  i've seriously never in my life seen such a well-constructed pillow.  for REALS!  the cover is removable, as well.  if you follow her on instagram, you get sneak peeks (like erin did) of pretties before they're listed. she's "paisleysprouts" on ig.

anyhoo, i thought you'd enjoy this little tidbit of loveliness.
now carry on with your day.

there's that deer fabric that caught erin's eye.
and allison's packaging made me feel like i was unwrapping a special birthday gift. well done, allison.

  3. Megan. I usually wake up in the morning and check my shop stats for kicks. I had over 85 shop views at 9 am. Usually it's around, well, 6. I thought, someone must have said something somewhere. Your sweet words just made my day! I'm so happy you love your new pillow. Thank you for sharing on your blog! That Erin is something else. I can't tell you how many times we texted back and forth to make sure everything was just right. ;) Her friendship is surely a blessing! Thoughtfulness - what a beautiful characteristic in a friend.
