I received today from HSG
, and I'm beyond over-the-moon! Definitely the best swap item I've ever gotten. Hands-down. She ran with my blue/red theme, picked up on my love of vintage, and she said "also wanted it to be somewhat sophisticated, because you seem to be that also". BWAHAHAHAH!! I had to laugh at that one, because sophisticated is about the last word I would use to describe myself. But the result speaks for itself, because this pillow is AWESOME! The buttons she used belonged to her grandmother, so this is definitely VERY cherished. Really, HSG, that meant a lot to me. Thank you.
The back of the pillow, with the wonderful vintage buttons!
One of my favorite details...the red bias tape on the edge of the closure!! LOVELOVELOVELOVELOV
Yup. This will be a permanent fixture on my bed.
Husky tested, husky approved.
Thank you SO SO MUCH HSG
, I truly love it to bits.
Edited to add: I also wanted to mention the edge of the button hole panel. HSG, I absolutely love how you used the minty/aqua green in the lining, and the way it came up to the buttonhole edge makes it look like piping. Super fancy and nice. Well done!! I'm truly honored to own this pillow.
