handmade granny-square pillow...

 For my birthday (earlier this month), my sister got me this new duvet cover from Ikea! The pillows I had were not quite right with it, so I decided to crochet my own granny-square pillow... & today I finished it!!
I love the way it looks with the stripes & it will be even better when I finish my granny-square blanket...
& Here is a close up of the wall art that is above my bed... I love this wall! 
about each item...
The flower photo was taken from a calendar by Alica Bock.
The floral heart print is by Rifle Paper Co.
The vases & camera are vintage.
The "love" quote (by Oscar Hammerstein) is painted on a fabric-covered canvas.
The two small frames in the upper left are vintage stamps.
I used fabric & a doilies in the embroidery hoops.
The yellow flowers are from JoAnn's.
The little black & white photo is a behind-the-scenes photo from Roman Holiday.
