Grain Sack Pillow, or How I Rescued it from the Kitties

Well, it doesn't appear to have gotten too far from them, but I did give it a good wash and found two standard sized feather pillows to stuff it with.  The wicker settee is in my Dining crowded Dining Room. I found this old wicker piece at my friend Colleene's sale back in July and it is in wonderful condition. She gave it to me for a song, and since my garage is full, it found it's way into the house. Sort of a makeshift placement, but I couldn't pass it up...the story of my life.

I tried to dress it up a little with a little shabby pillow and a sweet floral coverlet.

Easy project, as I had been looking for some kind of pillow or pillows to go on this. I think this may work.
I'm trying to find the balance between Too Much and Too Little, Over the Top and Minimalist. I love simple things, but I also love embellished.
Anyway, here's to something easy to get the look I love... vintage and comfortable!



  1. Oh so pretty!!! I love your cushion and your sweet kitty;)!!!

    I am of the more is more theory myself...I would DIE if I had to be a minimalist!!! Bring on the!!!


  2. I do believe he is whispering sweet nothings into her ear. You're right. It is a sweet little pillow. Looks good to me! ~Mindy

  3. Debra, it looks great! Perfect fit my friend.

  4. Looks like a very pretty & comfy spot to me, too.

  6. When you find that balance, lemme know the secret, k?
    Hey, your kitty looks just like my kitty! Can't ever wrong with a grain sack. :-)

  7. Hi Debra, Your wicker seat is very pretty with the cushions and pillow. I know I'm a "more" person. I sometimes try to calm things down a bit but I always go back to my "the more the merrier" self. Like in my new header, I rearranged that mantel several times but finally put everything back! LOL!
    Have fun with your "stuff"!

  8. What could be better than a new cat bed that doubles as a scratching post? Looks nice!

  9. I love the settee and how it is decorated with kitty. :)

  10. Hi Debra,
    I think wicker makes any room cozier. I love the settee and can see why you just had to have it. I think Kitty agrees. I try to edit but it's oh so hard to do. Some of my rooms are stuffed with stuff.
    I love your fall header! Miss the sheep though.
    Baa for now,

  11. This is a wonderful piece. I love white wicker!!

  13. Debra, your little wicker settee is wonderful. I have one and I just adore it.

  14. I am a "less" at home...that's why I sell! When I am at a show or at W&T's I can let my "more" side out to do what she wants.
    I'm a fool for wicker too and I love the look of yours. Great job fluffing!

  15. Beautiful, even nicer with a kitty to enjoy it! I know what you mean about balancing too much or too little. I go back and forth between the two all the time. Pam

  16. That's the story of our lives: finding balance!!!...Judging by the pictures you are doing just fine, girl!!!

  17. Hello
    Love the settee, just can't pass up good wicker, can you?
    Love your banner - is that your front door? Gives me inspiration for mine...right now all the flowers are dried up and leggy.
    Have a great week

  18. Hi...looks lovely.We share the same taste....on that note,thank you for always leaving me the nicest notes,you are very sweet!! Chrissy

  19. I love a feast for the eyes... the little French pillow is a keeper too. Looks fab.

  20. Hi, Debra!
    Too much -- not enough? The cats never care! Have a super day!
    Betty :)
