A Gift from Me to You

44 comments:
I cannot begin to express how much fun I have had working on this little blog thing for the last few months.  First off I never thought anyone would actually read it...except maybe my sister in law (who also happens to be a Kelly)  but you found me somehow and have made me smile every time I read a comment.  So here's the deal.  I want you to have Mr Grainy here: 

This is a wonderful vintage feedsack that I had made for a friend/client for a kitchen banquette.  We ended up not using it because we had too many pillows!  Can you believe it.... too many!

It  measures 18x29 and has great graphics.  You can use a king sized pillow for the fill which works perfectly.  We did the welting in the grain sack fabric too and it has  a zipper on the short end.
Here is the back with the stripes ( greyish blue and salmon)
This one looks especially fun with ticking and would be wonderful on the bed too. 
So just leave a comment on this post and next Friday I will announce the winner.  Nothing very scientific, I will put everybody's name in a fish bowl and have my husband pull one out!

A huge and heartfelt thank you to all my readers and followers!

Love you all

xxoo

  3. Ooooooo! Yes ma'am! Sign me up, Please!? I found a grain sack in Massachusettes at Brimfield last year - but I ended up sending it to Isa. This one will look fab on my sofa with the new lighter summer look, and perfect for my guest room during the winter - so it'll get plenty of use! :) Keeping my fingers crossed!

  4. Yippee! Please throw my name in the hat for the grain sack pillow! I definitely think it should live with me because although I live in Maryland now, I'm an Ohio girl, born and raised! So, it's only fitting that the Cincinnati pillow go to a girl that would truly appreciate it!

    Thank you!

  6. Mr. Grainy will look so nice here in the Sierra Nevada Foothills. Just his style, to be sure. He will have blue and white ticking waiting to greet him as the package is delivered to my door. You are great...your photos are great...you make me want to paint the outside of my house white and have another remodel on my kitchen. Why didn't I think about that great stove??? Why didn't I think about that great animal hide rug??? Because...I hadn't found you yet. Now, post some more things so that I can get inspired again, will you? I'm waiting here in the rainy foothills...waiting to be Kelly Inspired!! Thanks.

  11. Me, me, oh please pick me! Although I need another pillow like a hole in the head. Would love to win this though.
    I know how you feel about blogging. Can you believe it is this much fun? When I first started in November, my sister-in-law and biggest fan was my only "follower". I still can't believe anyone cares what I have to say, but it sure is fun reading their comments. It has truly brought out a creative side I didn't know I had. I can see that is so with you too when I read your blog. You have a lot to say and say it well and that is what people love. Plus, your homes and ideas rock! Thanks for following me!

  17. Hi Kelley,
    How fun! I would love to have Mr. Grainy join me in my bedroom:) In fact, I just got new bedding (white) and we (well, mostly my husband:)) added crown molding and have been painting today! Would love to add this to our room--I think I mentioned on your other post that I've long admired the grain sack look but never made the "jump". Very sweet of you to offer this to one of your readers, Kelley!

    Kelli
    P.S. I have a feeling your blog is going to grow by leaps and bounds this year! (and will be read by more than just Kelly's (i's ey's:))

  37. Mr. Grainy puts the awe in awesome. We have a navy blue couch -- how I wish it was off-white, instead -- but who knew in 1998? Mr. Grainy might lighten things up a tad, don'tchathink? Nice job sewing, with the cording and zipper!
