    Hello everyone. Today I am happy to be linking up to a fabulous party! Linda at It all started with paint, Kari at Thistlewood farms, and Andrea at The cottage market are cohosting Pillowpalooza. Everyone will be linking up all sorts of pillows.Fun times I tell ya, fun times.
    Let me start by saying,"My name is Kathleen, and I am addicted to pillows!" I like to make them, buy them, drool over them on Pinterest, and in catalogs, and other blogs. I have so many pillows it can get ridiculous when it's time to make the bed, or when the family wants to hang on the couch. My addiction outweighs the work though.
    Pillows can be one of the easiest and cheapest ways to give some new interest to a room. I like to change my pillows with the seasons. I am slowly turning my decor to a more neutral pallet so pillows are a great way to add pops of color or texture. Well, enough of the chatty Kathy, time for some pictures!

I made these for my bedroom. The ruffled pillows were made by tearing strips of sheets, gathering them, and sewing them onto the body of the pillow cover, also made from sheets.

Of course, I had to sew this interpretation of the British flag pillow.

This pillow was two dresser doilies. I loved the lace edge. I just sewed them together and then stuffed it with polyfil. Now I have a true original.

I didn't make any of these, but I love them just as much.

These were aquired slowly from Tuesday Morning, thrifting, and Hobby Lobby.

If I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be the zebra print lurking in the background. He's a little shy.;)

There he is, smile honey!

    I must confess, this is the tip of the iceberg. I have a feeling I am not alone. I can't wait to check out all the pillows!  WHOO HOO Partay!!
