Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Polka Dot Porch Pillows

It's been FREEZING here in northern Utah.
And raining for days on end. 
There was no
way I was going to work outside, so I did a little sewing.
Inside where it's warm.





 New pillows for the porch rockers.  For when it's
warm and sunny.  I'm trying to be optimistic.

These cushions are far too cute...love the polka-a-dots. Very charming.

The roses you asked about are shrub roses...there might be a climbing variety, but I am not sure. They are very prolific.

They're so cute--what did you make them out of? I want to make pillows for my bench in the front but want weather resistant fabric and keep forgetting to search if there's a spray I can put on regular fabric.
