Shabby Chic on a Thrift Store Budget ~ Pink Saturday

 Thrift Store Pillows

I LOVE pretty pillows!  
When it comes to decorating with pillows....  more is always more.
Last week I picked up some awesome vintage pillows for next to nothing!  Needless to say.....  I was tickled PINK!!
I found two lovely satin pin wheel pillows for $1.49 each!  One is a very soft pink and the other a brighter pink (the pictures make it look a lot brighter than it is).  They are in perfect condition.  Very plump with no stains or snags.  I love them!
I found the pretty rose pillow with the ribbon work the same day at another thrift store for $3.
I love the "Good Luck" pillow!  It is one of my fav's.  I traded for it so, it cost $0.  I love the hand embroidery and the lace around the edge.  And.....  who doesn't need a little good luck!!
All the other pillows (except the round Rachel Ashwell pillow)......  I made myself.  They are all reversible and can be mixed and matched for several different looks.  I used all vintage fabrics, pink ticking and vintage cross stitch pieces.  
The square "roses" pillow I made by hot gluing silk roses to a plain pink satin pillow.

Hope all you lovelies are having a very

Lovely,I think my favourite is the rose one you made. Can't have too many cushions or pillows. They make a home so comfy. xx

Wow! These are all so sweet and I have to agree, the rose pillow is just amazing. They'd look glorious piled up on a daybed.

Love the pleated 60s pillows. Just picked up a green one over the summer. There are a few patterns for them available on Etsy and I hope to buy one when I can splurge a little again.

Very pretty pillows, and they look nice the way you are using them.
