A Little Anna Maria Can Surely Spruce Things Up!

My couch pillows were looking kinda sad.

So, my philosophy is, when a pillow is lookin' sad, recover it!

A close up.

Recovering pillows is super easy. Just remember to pre-wash the fabric so when your stinky dogs lay and drool all over the pillows, you can just throw them in the washer and they will be good as new!

I love Anna Maria's bright colored fabrics. They all seem to go together so well. So, I took all the Anna Maria fabric that I had and got to covering! I even patch worked one pillow so all the fabrics I used would blend together. I am going to patchwork one more to tie it all together but, man, patch working takes some effort!

I recovered these little pillows to a new favorite show of mine, The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. If you have not seen this show, you must. It is adorable! Jill Scott is amazing in this series. I am looking forward to reading the books. My vacation to Santa Fe is nearing so I think I may take a few of the books with me. Ah, Santa Fe. I can't wait!!

Also, in other exciting news, the lineup for ACL posted today! Ben Harper (I predicted correctly!! yippeee), Dave Matthews, Sonic Youth, K'naan, Mos Def, Michael Franti, Toadies, B-52's, Lily Allen, Eek-a-mouse, and get ready....Pearl Jam!!! I have been wanting to see them in concert since like 8th grade. OK, who is going with me??? This is a fun, fun, fun festival and family friendly!

I did hear about Justin and Ben Harper! That is freaking awesome! He is certainly destined for stardom.

Don't worry, I will throw myself headlong into Eddie Veddar for you! Ah...the middle school crush has never ended. I think I have even heard them play Pearl Jam on the classic rock station. Ha!
