It's All In The Numbers

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share with you something that I ordered from Etsy.com.  It arrived today and was packaged so cute.


It came with extra gifts too.

Check out this cute little metal fragment that can be used to hang off a knob.


The back of the tag says this:


Isn't that a nice suggestion?

 
This is what was inside the tissue paper.........


This is called a zip code pillow!  The numbers are my own personal zip code.  I ordered it from Kijsa P. Housman Studios.  Her sister is the author of the Thistlewood Farm blog.  She has an Etsy shop and sells handmade items.  So, if you want your own zip code pillow, head on over there!

Here is how the back looks.

I placed it in a chair in my kitchen.




Also, I discovered something as I was playing with pillows today.  One of the little square cushions that I ordered from Wuslu.com fits my stool perfectly!  So, I decided to use it on there.


So, that's what I wanted to share today!  Hope everyone is enjoying their week so far.  My kids are home on Spring break and we plan on seeing a movie and planting some flowers.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet pillow Kelly. I found a set of vintage cups with the zip code to Warner Robbins, Georgia on them recently. That town is where Joe graduated from high school.

Debby said...

That's a great idea for pillows. I know my friend that has a stationary shop says the personalized note pads with zip codes are a bit hit. Love your packaging.

I love that pillow. A few years ago there was a blog I followed called "Ask Kari & Kijsa" who were sisters and had some amazing posts...but they "fell off the face of the earth" about two years ago...I bet these are the same girls. I remember one of them was buying a farmhouse...maybe Kari at Thistlewood Farm? I love her blog!

Thanks for sharing your new pillow...I gotta get me one now!
