My baby boy and some pillows

My baby boy is almost three weeks old and he is all sorts of adorable! And since I'm not much of a convalescer (I just made that word up) I've been jumping right back into making some progress in my house. I decided to go simple and start with some new pillows for my family and living rooms.

I ordered two of these from World Market for my family room and love them! I wish the green was a little more green, but I took care of that with a green sharpie. I know - I'm crazy, but it worked! I didn't color over all the green, just added to it. You can see what I did in the picture at the bottom. But don't judge me on that - it was my first one. I didn't add any green to the peacock feathers on the second one.

I'm in the process of making this pillow for my living room where this...

...pillow from Target was recently added. I LOVE this one as well. Such a great pattern.

I also just ordered this fabric from Fabricadabra.us, so I can make this pillow for my family room (this is why I needed some green added to the pillows!).

I also picked up a couple of napkins from World Market to make the blue polka dot pillow. It's hard to tell in the picture but the polka dots have an ikat look to them and the blue goes perfectly with the floral pillow.

It feels good to be making progress - I feel like I've been running in place for the last two years. I finally have a clear vision of what I want to do. Now it's just a matter of doing it!
