It was a really SOFT Christmas


I have A THING for throw pillows...just love 'em.

 These are a few we gave the grandgirls...

Deeds is a BEATLES fan so when I found the YELLOW SUBMARINE pillow, I knew she'd like it.

I just delight in cute pillows...
I've learned now that I  need to buy, for myself, just the pillow COVERS
and have only a few pillow inserts...

Pillows with inserts take up a LOT of room so I won't buy a pillow
 if it doesn't have a zipper for the pillow.

Most of  the above pillows came from
and they are every one adorable, WITH ZIPPERS. :)

This whimsical Christmas pillow went to KATHY.....

and this cutie pie with her baby now belongs to STACY.

These 2 pillows are wool and I ordered them from  Grandin Road.
They are really nice pillows...

Well, time for my nap.....

  1. There's something about pillows...
    Happy boxing day to you!

  2. Love your pillows!!! I need to remember how important INSERTS are!!!

  3. Very cute! I love those Craftberry designs :)

  4. That's clever just to collect the pillow covers!

  5. BJ.

    pillows are such a great gift idea.. love all the ones you choose, especially the elephant and baby.
    every time their are seen or used your beautiful smile will be remembered.

    the "take down " begins for me today. I'll leave the main tree till jan 1 but the rest will slowly and carefully be stored away from now till then. I've promised myself to label the containers and boxes this year.
    keep your fingers crossed for me that I keep that promise to myself:)

  6. Beautiful gifts! I love cute pillows too:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  7. Hello BJ, your pillows are all so cute. Thank you for sharing about these pillows. Now I know they make good presents. So soft and cuddly. Blessed Sunday!

  8. What a fabulous idea for gifts! Love these. Belated Merry Christmas wishes~ hugs, Jackie

  9. We saw it was snowing in El Paso and there were tornadoes in Dallas. We escaped the storm pretty well, just a bit of wind and a light rain.

  10. The pillows are adorable. We have been having a lot of rain here flooding in some areas. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  11. My friends call me the throw pillow queen but I humbly bow down before you. You are intense -- and they are wonderful! Keep safe, my friend!

  12. Love all the pillows - especially the one with the swings that says don't forget to play. Play is what opens our hearts and minds to being forever young, just like you are and inspire us to be BJ.
    Stay safe with the weather forecast.

  13. BJ, I love all the pillows too. That is a lot of snow for your area. We are getting colder today and it's been raining on and off for two days. Friday(Christmas was sunny). We are to get much more tomorrow. I have prayed for Texas and all my friends glad you are ok. Be safe. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  14. BJ, love all the pillows! The yellow submarine one is a hoot!

  15. Love your pillow idea . . .
    And all the pictures and themes . . .
    Great idea for gifting!

  16. Hello Maam Bj,

    Wishing you all the best and a peaceful new year to come 2016.

    Greetings from snowy Stockholm,

  17. Dear sweet bj, are you as exhausted as I am? And I didn't even have to cook!!
    Wish I had thought of the pillow thing before I ended up with stacks of pillows...*sheesh!*
    Glad your Christmas was Merry..and so was mine. It's neat when you don't have to do all the work.
    Now to get Christmas decor all down and put away. Next year I'm going to try and be more on time so I can enjoy it longer. I LOVE your Christmas decor this year! So darned cute.

  18. Cute pillows BJ ... what a nice Christmas present. I don't use a lot of pillows so never think about gifting them. Great idea though. Hope your weather does not get too bad. Light rain here, but not freezing. Take care.
    Warm hugs,
    Audrey Z.
