We had found some coordinating fabric for more pillow covers so we went to the cutting table. As we were measuring and cutting I looked up and what caught my eye? The roll of the exact fabric we were looking for! It was meant to be! I purchased several yards and started sewing. I made 11 pillow covers in various sizes and 4 reversible placemats, but fabric isn't everything! A few trips to my favorite home decor stores provided the finishing details to make our springtime home beautiful.

Check back for our next holiday decorations: 4th of July
What I love about our decorations is how with a few changes, I can change the colors and feel of our home. I can switch the pillow cases, placemats, colored candles, LOVE jar greenery, and birds with the next season's decorations.
Our next holiday I'll be decorating for will be 4th of July, my mother's second favorite holiday. Joann's has some beautiful patriotic fabric, so much in fact that we purchased enough to make some placemats to sell online. Here is a sneak peak at the main fabric I'll be using to celebrate Independence Day.
