Hillside House - 31 Days of Etsy

Hillside House is a shop full of various vintage finds based out of Oregan.  I ran across the shop a few years ago and fell in love with her map coordinate pillows.

I love how the pillow can mesh with pretty much any style design and carry meaning or symbolism without being too in your face.  My pillow has the coordinates for our front door.  Most people meet their spouses at work.  Through friends.  Somewhere.  But I met mine when he showed up at my door.  Literally.  But that's a wonderful story for another day.   

What location would you use for your coordinates?

Fluffed Animals - 31 Days of Etsy

In honor of my sweet sister's Woodland themed baby shower this morning, I've chosen Fluffed Animals as today's Etsy shop.

I am in love with these little pillows!  They are made of flannel and are just waiting to be hugged. What kid wouldn't love this?  <I'm sure there's one or three out there that would be scared of the fox being rabid...but I haven't met that kid.  Or maybe they just watch too much tv.>

My favorite part about the shop is that you can download the pattern and make your own.  Or get a kit (perfect for teaching a little one to sew!).  Or a finished pillow.  The skies the limit.

Which is your favorite?  I think I'm becoming more and more partial to the Badger...but then again the wolf is lovely.  Check out Fluffed Animals ....... there are a bunch of other animals & even a few Halloween themed creatures if that's more your fancy!
