My Days Have Been So Frantic



Things have just been so frantic since I returned from my brothers. It was wonderful to see his adorable boys and there is nothing better then holding a new baby. His little petite wife gave birth to a 9 lb. 8 oz. boy. She should be frantic with 3 little boys ages 1 year, 3 years and now the baby. Yikes!


Jumping back into my normal schedule was a bit hard, the time change difference had me sleeping a little later then usual so I had to make some adjustments and get back to my normal sleeping patterns. While I was gone I did come up with some new designs and couldn't wait to get home to put them to the test. One of the designs is the burlap slip with Paris on the front. I ended up loving this slip so much that now all the burlap designs will be offered as slips. Much easier to ship. I am so excited about this slip that I decided to offer it as a giveaway. You know me, I absolutely love giveaways. So here is the slip, just leave a post letting me know which room you will put this in.


I hope all of you are having a wonderful summer and are out there having fun.

I LOVE this! and I LOVE the slip idea - I would put this in my living room with my other Petit Coterie pillows!!

Carmen Leigh said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! This pillow would be proudly displayed on my red PB couch in our living area. Love the idea of doing slips! God Bless your sister in law.... I have two boys and two dogs and I am thinking of taking up drinking in the afternoon!

Jeanneoli said...

Oh, I love your new design! Great idea to just do slips...much easier to ship. I would put this on our bed...it would complement my new linen bedding.

alee said...

wow - so sweet! Your work truly is awesome... I can't decide which room I'd put this in -- either my bedroom {which I am in the middle of re-doing} or my living room ...
Maybe I'd just have to switch it back & forth between them :) ...
But wherever it is I am pretty sure it will bring Paris Markets to mind!

Tracey said...

I would put this in my living room with the other 3 pillows of yours I have (2 I bought from you, 1 from Kasey). It beautiful, like all of your pillows!!

Vicki said...

Would look fabulous in my family room.....slips are a fantastic idea!!!

Cathy said...

Hmmm, let's see what room. I think would be perfect in my new Glitz and Glam station, that DH built for me a few weeks ago. All white M! You would love it. I know I do. Love the slip too.

Glad to see you back and creating again.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Dear Michelle,
How marvelous that you came to visit me! I see that you love pillows; what better way to accent any room and they are even practical! Like you, I adore a white décor, but my husband and I both love the French, fairytale/cottage and castle look, so we ended up with a lot of cast iron, tapestries and darker woods. HOWEVER, my bedroom upstairs is all white with pink accents! It is a total fairytale room with some Marie Antoinette tones. Please, do come again; I have been on a little hiatus writing my Master's thesis, but I will be back in the saddle again this week! Take care and LONG LIVE PILLOWS!! Anita

Jacqueline said...

Hi there Michelle,
My nane is Jacqueline and I bought two of your cushions from Etsy a while ago and I love them. I am going to Italy soon and on my return I am going to order some more. One is in my study ( which I think can be seen on an old post ) and the other is in my dining room. I now need lots more for my lounge and conservatory so this one ( which is gorgeous) would sit nicely with them. Many thanks for the pleasure they have given me. XXXX

Tara said...

Gorgeous blog and pillow!! thank you for coming over for a visit, I see you have some of my favorite blogs listed as your too! We have something in common! ;) Now let's see, would I be booted if I said the porch? I would chain it to the chair of course...but it would pretty up my itty bitty porch!
And my next question, how does one have a 1 & 3 year old and a new baby and not go crazy? that is a good woman! te hee...

Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I LOVE the Paris slip! I have been experimenting with burlap and stencils myself, but nothing as awesome as this! Impressive! This pillow would join some fellow french inspired pillows on my sofa. Please count me in on the giveaway!

I just ordered one slip from you and I can hardly wait for it to arrive.........oh how I would love another. Your blog is cute I love it. Tell your brother to hang in there...I have 6 kids and at one time they were 3, 2, 1 and a newborn......no kidding, then I had a four year break and had two more...the teenage years are the real challenge.
