Cushion Love and Beautiful Bloggers

Look at this magical cushion that came in the post yesterday! It's from Jennie at A Little Vintage. As part of Vic's amazing cushion swap, I didn't know who was sending me my cushion cover. When it arrived I was just gobsmacked by the amount of work and detail that went into this gorgeous work of art. Bits of vintage fabric, lovely stitching, oh my! A truly magical cushion if ever there was one! I wish there were better light to photograph it's beauty. I am imagining it adorning a vintage wicker chair on a summer porch, wouldn't that be pretty? As I have no vintage wicker chair, nor a porch of any season, it now adorns my couch. Though I have had to retrieve it from Pony Girl's bed twice since it's arrival.

That is not where the story ends though, in fact this is the part that brought actual tears to my eyes and filled my heart with amazement at the beauty of bloggers in general, and the overwhelming kindness of Jennie in particular. In her note that accompanied the cushion, she mentioned that after reading my blog, she had to send something along for Pony Girl. And would you look at this!

I mean drop dead gorgeous AND there are horses on her dress!!! With special details just for Pony Girl, I really was completely overwhelmed by Jennie's generosity.

Thank you, thank you Jennie! You are an amazing talent and a lovely soul. Please pop by her shops and take a look at her creations!

Oh yes...
If that's not love, I don't know what is!

Wow...I am tearing up here..so beautiful and Pony Girl looks so very happy. I am sure you put as much love and care in the pillow you sent off and now you get that love and care back...big sigh..

Such a treat to receive a cushion so full of flowers and colour and handmade too. A little treasure in your home.

And then that lovely beautiful doll, so very much made for ponygirl. She must be in seventh heaven with it and yet, she does manage to steal your cushion from you ;-) well, she loves beautiful things too, what do you want...

Enjoy!!!

Bye,
Marian
