How to Make a Pillow from a Placemat for Under $5.00

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT How to Make a Pillow from a PlacematI’ve been eyeing those cute Christmas throw pillows with trees tied to the tops of a vintage truck or car…always red, of course! They remind me of choosing the perfect tree with my Daddy and my sister and then tying it on the roof of the station wagon for the trip home. So as I was passing the holiday placemats in Target, it should come as no surprise that one of them really spoke to me! It said…I need to be a pillow! lol The graphic was perfect and those fringed edges were just so sassy! And all it took was one look and I knew it would be super easy, too! And best of all, it was under $5.00!

Kitties and Grandchildren...Purrfect Together!

As many of you know, there has been a lot going on at my house recently! My daughter and my grandchildren have come to live with me so that my daughter can finish her degree in elementary education and become a teacher like her mom! Needless to say, I am very proud and happy to help make that dream come true. But it has called for some adjustments from us all, including my feline "staff." However, it didn't take long for the kitties and the little grands, ages 5 and 6, to become great friends, especially with my laid-back and lovable co-host Baby Kitty!
