Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Pillow Talk, Part Two

The first pillow talk was about the downstairs pillows. These are the upstairs ones. A chair really needs a pillow and I do have a fondness for needlepoint ones!

This was done in my "country phase". (Which, actually, didn't last long -- what was I thinking!) I saved it and then brought it out once again when I brought out the other needlepoint pillows. It does have pink flowers which goes well with the pink roses in the master bedroom and I don't seem to mind the "country" blue and white gingham border.
Nothing like a leather chair and needlepoint. Alas, I didn't do this one. It was a Tuesday Morning purchase for the pink rose master bedroom. Alas, it has now moved into one of the leather chairs in the sunroom.
Another leather chair and needlepoint pillow. And another Tuesday Morning purchase.
And the last pink pillow upstairs. A patchwork and once again a Tuesday Morning purchase. I've had it quite a while and think it does fit nicely in the master bedroom.

Every chair needs a pillow and every chair at Linderhof has a pillow.

It's Pink Saturday so please join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to see everyone's pink this Satuarday!!!!

Even more lovely pillows! I'm imagining myself at Linderhof curled up in one of those chairs with a good book and anticipating a steaming cup of tea and a nosh!

Have a lovely holiday weekend.

I think the first one is my favorite and it doesn't seem country at all to me. You have found some great pillow at Tues Morning. I think pillows add personality! Have a good Labor Day weekend!

Martha....Love your pillows, I also collect them. Whenever I travel over/seas I bring an assortment of covers. Now if only to fill them.
I can just imagine your home with those gorgeous pillows.Thanks for sharing. :-)

While my daughter is away for a few days I've been sorting out the upstairs, including her room. She shares my (and your!) affection for pillows - I was stunned by the number she has piled on bed and wing chair!

I think we all went through that country phase. Actually, to the best of my recollection, it was forced down our throats! However, this is my favorite pillow in the upstairs collection. Your work is beautiful and the design, classically traditional, i.e TIMELESS.

Who doesn't love needlepoint pillows? I have several partially finished pillow tops in lovely designs -- although by now the moths may have gotten to them. I used to teach needlepoint, but have a problem actually FINISHING things!

Most of my needlepoint pillows now have spaniels on them!

PS And I love your little country one -- the checked border is charming, and I think it looks quite French.
