Ever So Clever, Ever So Pretty Friday, #4 {House Number Pillow}

Happy Friday everyone!

Today, I did an “easy peasy” creation that I took inspiration from the gals at 11 Magnolia Lane.


It is from a Christy’s front porch when she featured her home tour.

I do eventually want to do exactly what she did, but with some time constraints I did a similar version for today.


I bought a pillow from HomeGoods, and some house numbers from Lowe’s Home Improvement.


The numbers are secured by the small nails that were provided and hot glue.


Easy peasy!!!


I think this method is a great quick decorating project…with my busy week, this fit the bill!

However, when there is more time, you can make those wonderful pillows and stencil the numbers as Christy did.


This project cost about $16.00…



Hope you enjoyed my “easy peasy” project, inspired by the gals at 11 Magnolia Lane.


This little cutie has been my helper this week!

AND….at this time I would like to tell you something that is very exciting for “me”…:)

The fine folks at POTTERY BARN are featuring my Spring Mantel on their blog tomorrow (Saturday, March 30th)

I will be posting a link to it tomorrow morning…did you feel the earth move?…

…..that was me doing cartwheels across the floor!!…

    LOVE the pillow! These dinky little Midwestern “porches” (really…a lot of nerve to even call them that!) don’t have enough space for a settee or chair of any kind, but you have given me a great idea just the same.

    Happy Easter to you and your family!
