Pillow Parade

My friend, Bettye, has made all the pillows in her house. Kari and Kijsa suggested I share the next few posts of Bettye's house with her many pillows, on their Pillow Parade. Go here to see others who have joined in the Pillow Parade.

The next seven posts will feature rooms in her beautiful home! Bettye gave permission to share them.
The first room I'm sharing is the great room, it really is a "great room!" So much eye candy everywhere! The front door is in the background. You will see the hallway that leads to this great room in the following posts.

Bettye has silhouettes of all her grandchildren, except the youngest, but there's a frame to put it in! In the background, right, you can see the kitchen.

This is Bettye, she is much prettier than this picture! The masterbed is in the background.

Bettye upholstered these chairs and made the drapes and pillows.

I think Bettye upholstered this little chair above too.

This Great Room really is great, isn't it!

For more beautiful pillows, keep scrolling down to the following posts.

Also for pillows in my guest room, see a recent post on Tuesday, January, 27, 2009, click here

Your friend Bettye is a very talented woman. Thank you for sharing her lovely home with us:-)

I see that you live in Central Florida. My husband is from Lakeland and we lived there the first two years we were married.

You are right a very nice decor -- Thank Her for leaving her beautiful wood pieces in their natural form and not painting them black or white or red!!! Was very refreshing to see the natural wood tones for a change.
