Mourning Doves and New Pillows

Oh - Brenda is going to be so proud of me getting a good bird picture!!  We have Mourning Doves nesting in our 50' pine tree in the back yard.  They built their nest amazingly low to the ground. 
I have been busy this week sewing on new pillows for my Etsy shop.
The center of this one is an old, vintage tablecloth.  I have to admit tho, that I painted the leaves red.  They were a pale aqua and I wanted red.  So, I just painted them.  Where there's a will, there's a way!
The red and yellow flowered part of this is a vintage tablecloth. 
I loved this old embroidered piece of linen with the hand crocheted trim around the edge.  I think it made a pretty pillow.
Beach umbrellas, anyone?
Maybe you prefer lighthouses?
Or gardening?  Do you see the three dimensional ladybug?
These will all be on my Etsy shop later this evening.
In the next couple of days, I will be adding some of the vintage Memory Pillows and others for Mother's Day.  I'm only doing 12 of the Memory Pillows, so if you want one for Mother's Day, stay tuned or drop me a line.


  1. Judy, I love all your beautiful fabrics. You painting that one, made me smile..I was just thinking how very pretty the colors were on it..then I read . Good photo of the dove. :):) xoxo,Susie

  2. I love all the pillows. Where do you find the time.

  3. Just got a chance to open bloglovin'. unfortunately, I no longer get you posts by e-mail. The pillows are perfect!
    We have 6 doves who come to my yard in the fall, winter and early spring. They get so used to us, I can refill the feeders and they will wait patiently on the other side of the yard, talking amongst themselves. I have not been blessed with having my camera on hand when they are present, so thank you for sharing. ( The grands call them Mr. & Mrs. Peckerson, Flapperson and Quackerson.)

  4. You do such a nice job with your pillows, Judy!
    The fabrics and colours you choose
    coordinate so well.

  5. Judy, your pillows are stunning. You really do a wonderful job on them. I don't know how you have the time with all you do.
    Hope all is well at your house and hubby is feeling better. How are the twins doing? Bet they are growing like a weed.
    Have a terrific weekend.

  6. You got a very nice photo of the dove. I put one pillow in my favs. I love them all my friend! Hugs!

  7. Hi Judy,

    Your pillows are adorable!! How amazing that you painted the flowers red; you are so brave!

    The mourning dove looks so pretty, nesting up there, and perfectly at home.

    Have a great weekend!


  8. Judy- You have a great eye for color combinations and fabric choices. I just love your pillows. What a creative lady you are...and I love that you painted the leaves. You are a gal after my own heart. xo Diana

  9. Great job on the pic of the dove. Love hearing them in the mornings, but have rarely heard them the last couple of years. Hope they have just moved on and nothing happened to them. Love the pillows! Like someone else said - don't know where you find the time.
    Have a great weekend!

  10. Nice to meet you, I hopped over from Kris' blog! But once I got here I realized I've been here before. I have now bookmarked your blog so I won't forget to visit more often! Love all the pillows. Blessings, Cindy

  14. HI Judy, love your pillows. The fabrics are amazing. These are not going to last long in your shop. Love the beach umbrellas!!
    Beautiful shot of the dove. My son has one that sits on his chimney every morning and evening. He says, it's nana and grandpa watching over him sent by God. Oh my gosh, be still my heart.
    Have a great weekend.

  15. I love vintage tablecloths with their fun patterns. Making them into pillows is a neat idea.

  16. I love all of these pretty pillows! The vintage fabric in the first one reminds me of a tablecloth my grandmother always had on her table and the gingham check is a favorite of mine! I wish I had room and a place for that one. Enjoy your weekend!

  17. We have a pair of doves that come to the feeder. I just love them!! I know their nest is nearby but I haven't seen it yet. Your pillows are so charming, especially incorporating the old with the new. :) Hope you are having a fabulous weekend. :)
