Beautiful Pillows and a Giveaway

Hey all my friends!


Today is a good day!  How about where you are?


I told you in my last post (here) about the giveaway I was going to be hosting for a sweet friend and new etsy shop owner.  My friend’s name is Kim and she and I actually go to church together.  She is a beautiful lady, inside and out.  She is a  wife, and mother of two precious children.  She also has great talent and has decided to share some of that talent with all of us.


I told Kim that once she got her shop open, I would LOVE to introduce you all to her and let you have a chance to see her creations. 


She is still in the  process of filling her shop but does have several things listed.  She will be adding more so be sure to  keep visiting her.


Right now I want to show you a few beautiful pillows she made for me.  (Can I just say a big wooo hooo for my friends who can sew and are so generous and kind?)


white burlap


This is the pillow I showed you the other day.  I love the light burlap…so clean and crisp.


burlap roses 2


Love the multiple burlap rosettes on this one. 


ross 3


Love that this burlap beauty reads Made in the USA across the top.   Words and graphics are always a winner to me.  (I have actually asked Kim to make me a pillow with a cow graphic of some sort on it and can wait to see what she comes up with)  Of course, I will be sure to show you.


red and white 4


I especially love this red and white ticking pillow.  I have really enjoyed pulling some reds and blues into our home recently so this one is just perfect sitting on my little bistro chair.


Now to the fun giveaway part.


Kim is offering a $25 gift certificate to use in her shop for whoever wins. 


She is also offering a 10% discount to anyone who is a follower of mine and orders something from her.  If you are a follower and want to buy something from her shop, then just let Kim know in the “Notes” section that you are a follower of Amy’s or All Things Home.  EASY enough.    (“Thanks Kim for offering to do this for my friends”)


***DISCLAIMER…I always hesitate in asking people to follow me during a giveaway time, but I think Kim’s idea of doing this was too kind and too generous to pass up.


Okay…so here’s what I would love for you to do…


Go to Kim’s etsy shop, Sew Cute Kreations, and take a look around.  Again, remember that she will be adding new items to her shop soon.


Then I would like for you to come back and tell me what your “favorite” is in her shop.


I would also love for you to share this giveaway with your friends on facebook or your blog.




Leave me a comment telling me what’s your favorite thing.


If you share it on facebook, leave me a comment.


If you share it on your blog, leave me a comment.


That’s 3 comments total that you can leave me and get your name in the drawing three times.  (Boy, I don’t like confusing giveaways…is this one confusing?)  I think this one is actually pretty easy compared to some others I have seen.




Okay…when you have a minute…click HERE to go to Kim’s Sew Cute Kreations and take a look around.  Remember to come back and leave your comments.


The WINNER will be chosen one week from today on Monday, August 13th.   


God bless you all!!


Thanks, my friends, for always supporting new bloggers and new etsy shop owners.  You are all great!!

Ooh, I've made her shop a 'favorite'. The pillows are so cute. The one with multiple rosettes as you have is so sweet, as is the square with the muslin rosette. You are lucky to have such a talented friend. I always hope my friends talents will rub off on me, but so far, so luck!

How sweet of Kim! Her pillows are gorgeous... I had a hard time deciding between the burlap flour sack pillow and the ticking... but in the end, as usual, I just can't resist anything made with ticking fabric!

Hi Amy~

Your friend has such beautiful things in her shop! It is hard to say which is my favorite...but if I had to, it would be the burlap flour sack pillow that says "Made in USA"...

I like the Made in the USA Wheat Flour Sack pillow. It would go great with my neutral decor.

Grammy Goodwill said...

How did this happen? I thought sure I had entered this giveaway. Then I saw your reminder on today's post and decided to check. WHAT? I didn't enter. Oh, no. Well, I must say I liked all the pillows, esp the one with the rosettes and the one with the red ticking. Oh, and the burlap flatware holders. She does lovely work. Thanks so much for the reminder to enter.
