glam cushion

I should mention that I was inspired by Sunny at Life in Rehab on this project. She is a girl after my own heart. Amazing projects, full of inspiration and a ray of sunshine. GO VISIT HER, you will be glad you did.

I picked up a sequined skirt at the thrift store yesterday for $7.99. The lovely clerk said “there’s a top that goes with that” and quickly ran down the isle to go get it, before I had a chance to say anything. She brought back a hideous sequined black and gold top. Um, I didn’t want to break her heart, after all, she was being so helpful, but I had to tell her that I will only take the skirt as I am using it to make cushions. She took it in good stride and just said “oh”.
Then I picked up 4 placemats on sale for $10.

I picked up this bag of stuffing for a couple of bucks, with the original price written on the bag of $17.98, yikes.
Now I have a glam cushion.  One down, three more to go.

My favourite party of the week is taking place at Southern Hospitality. I love a thrifty find and so do many others, so go and see what they have found or done with their thrifty finds.

  3. Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my turquoise pillow. I wanted to be blog polite and return the favor but I must admit I wanted to see what somebody with the address flyinflishlips would do with a blog. :) How fun. Love your writing and I think it's great what you did with that skirt and your front door update is terrific. Nicely done.
