Vintage Christmas Pillow!

Hello friends!  Just a little Christmas tip for you today:

Get yourself on over to Target!  I was there the other day and found this cute little snowman pillow for $2.50 in the Dollar Spot.  They had so many great ones, too, not just this little guy.  I considered making some felt pillows for Christmas, because I had a lot of fun making these for Halloween, but for $2.50?  Forget it!  I'll just buy them!

He's the perfect little spot of color on my favorite houndstooth chair!

Also, a few little housekeeping items today.  I have been looking for a post in which to thank a few ladies for some awards, but apparently I am very wordy (no surprise to my husband) and this is the first post that wouldn't be a mile long if I added to it.  So here goes:

Thank you to Coco of Ordinary Miracles for this award:

Thanks to Circle of Life for this little beauty:


And a shout out to Jenni of Nest to Keep for this one:

And lastly, thank you to JennyKate at JennyKate'sSpot for this one:

You girls are such great blogging friends and it has been fun to get to know you!  And now...I am off to do some serious Christmas decorating.
