Mish mash of home things

Christmas (not really) cactus is flowering beautifully after its summer vacation outside.

Lamp shade now has trim , no bling.

2 old gold covered feather pillows needed updating , used more of the ultra suede sage fabric.

Made simple envelope style covers;
These cushions will sit on my bedroom reading chair, to make it even more comfy for the winter months..

Thinking these pillows still need something to give them a more finished look, perhaps 3 big buttons?

Oh, the cactus is doing well! Love the trim on the lampshade and I do think some big buttons or maybe a really yummy ribbon tied around the pillows would look great!

Rosanne; the poor cactus has been knocked down I can't count how many times over the summer yet it blooms happily. I like the idea of ribbon perhaps some really lush wide ribbon for one then 3 big buttons on the other, ....thanks.

Beautiful cactus. I love them. They would look good with the buttons. The ribbon you mention would also look good. The ribbon and buttons will give them the contrast they need.

Ah! There you are! I've seen you commenting at my place quite often, but I had been unable to follow you here until now ;-) I'm liking those cozy pillows. My cats would like them, too!

That's a great looking Christmas cactus. I wish mine were that happy.
