Granny Or Great

There she sat at the thrift store lonely and rejected. I watched her as another customer picked her up, examined her, then put her back after deciding that she was made by and belonged in a little granny's home.
I too picked her up to admire her handmade qualities; a floral pattern surrounded by diamonds on one side, and a geometric pattern on the other. I wondered how her maker had so seamlessly tucked a pillow form inside. Her one dollar price tag did not reflect the effort and love that had gone into her creation. It was then that I determined to adopt this little orphan and bring her into my home.
She now resides happily in my living room with my other thrifted orphans, each adding to the beauty and greatness that is my winter couch.

You made the right choice. So much love went into making it - it deserves to sit on your couch with your other pretties.

someone else 'would' have adopted her...and you would've forever regretted it!

How fantastic that you've rescued it! I always think of all the hours of work that goes into these things too - it's such a shame that they're disgarded for whatever reason.

What a truly sweet post and what a truly lovely pillow! Oh yes! It looks perfect with your others. You have great taste.

I sometimes bring home rejected cross stitch pictures for your same reasons.

She def. does not look like a misfit any longer. She was literally "made" for your couch. Keep sharing and reminding me and others of the simple things in life.

All those pillows go great together! I wish I had an eye for that stuff! Or even just pillows! I'll take just an eye for pillows.
