Lemon Squeezy inspired pillow, and my Poang

During Christmas time the wonderful Christy at A Lemon Squeezy Home made this beautiful Poinsettia pillow inspired by a Pottery Barn pillow.

The tutorial is great, you can find it HERE. Christy is a great source for Tutorials, particularly if you are a Mama. She makes all kinds of cute things for her kiddos. I knew I wanted to make one, but did not find the time during the holidays, however I did manage to buy some fake poinsettias at Joann's for 10 cents after Christmas and Yesterday I finally made my own.

In the process of trying to find my happy I have been lightening up my house quite a bit, adding more white where I can. So I decided that my pillow would be all white.

I think it goes perfectly on my new Poang chair from IKEA. 
I read all kinds of review to find a good rocking chair for me.
A lot of people had said that the Poang was too deep and hard to get out of, however I am pretty tall so it works perfectly for me, and although the bouncing isn't quite the same as rocking or gliding I find it comforting enough. Plus I love how baby friendly it is, pretty impossible to hurt little curious fingers.
The thing that completely sold me on it was being able to buy the super plush grey cover. Reminds me of a black sheep, and we are pretty big fans of sheep here.

"and we are pretty big fans of sheep here." The way you say things sometimes just cracks me up. You are inimitable. and adorable.
