CLASSY CUSHIONS ..........

I like a nice cushion or two, don't you ? I have loads spread about the house and they can really make a dingy corner perk up can't they ? You don't have to spend a lot of money to change the look of a room ..... and, if you're really clever, like a lot of you bloggers out there, you can make them yourself !!
Here are a few that I'd like to get my hands on ..........






Oh, and it's not only the cushions I like........ I love everything in these rooms. They are all pretty gorgeous !!!!



























AND NOW ..... here are some of my own that are strewn about our house, but they are just the tip of the iceberg ..... I have lots more !!


















..... and don't forget .....



.....  just saying !! .....


Note to self : Blogger lost all of my comments when it removed everyone's post !!!!!!!!!!

  4. Jacqueline, would you just pack all your own lovely cushions into a truck and send them over to me? It's what the United Nations would want you to do in the name of International Goodwill. I'm just popping out now to clear my drive in case it's a big truck.

  7. Hi Jackie,

    I didn't realise you were back. I am happy to see one of your post again! Glad your computer is fixed at last. In the meantime my husband gave me a new computer as well. Mine was getting so slow. It took me hours to leave comments.

    You have quite a collection of pillows. I love having them laying around too. We even have some big ones on the floor.

    Have a happy evening!

    Lieve groet,

    Madelief x

  15. Flashback!! Hey Jaq...thanks for taking the time to revisit...that was weird.
    But not the end of the world eh...hope you are enjoying beautiful Springtime in England. I have a chance to come over in 6 weeks. I may do it ..not sure but if I do let’s meet up for a little drinky somewhere in the city....

  16. Oh I completely forgot HOW cozy your HOME is...especially during such trying times. My heart aches right now.

    Thank you for your lovely comment you left. Although it's gone/deleted due to blogger's tantrum the last 24 hours, I did get to read it before they deleted everything. tyvm

  17. Jackie, it's been too long since we've chatted!
    First things first: How are you? Hope this message finds you well and in the best of spirits.
    Second of all: I think I need the cushion that says "Louville Sainte Julienne" -- where can I find it?
    (And thirdly: Wasn't the Royal Wedding fab? You Brits must have had a blast!)
    I've missed your blog! Always a pleasure.
    And say, where do your travels take you this summer.
    Just got back from Nice myself a couple of days ago and still have a few days off. I love the French Riviera -- can't get enough!
    XOXO

  20. Hello Jackie

    I so agree with your comments on cushions except for one thing. No matter how simple, in theory, they are to sew - my efforts have all been disasters. So, thank goodness for all the ready-made soft furnishings available.

  30. Those rooms are just gorgeous. And you are right, it's not the cushions in them, it's the throws, the frames, the chippy walls and floors, it goes on and on. I love your collection. You can never have too much pretty cushiness! Jacqueline xx

  42. Hello Jackie:
    Cushions, can one ever have too many.....no, we think not, especially if they look as wonderful as the ones you show here. Drawing room, dining room, bedroom, even bathroom, we have cushions piled high in them all, as indeed, so do you seem to have.

    We love your linen cushions with the graphic details, they look so interesting and, inevitably, make one wonder about where or when they could have been used in a previous life. Perfect!

    We have been recommended to your blog by a friend of ours, Edith Hope, and are so pleased to have discovered your most stylish and eclectic posts.

    Love all yours....I think I have one just like yours....that cute little postcard one.

    Sorry about blogger losing your comments. I've heard that bloggers been a bugger lately:)

  48. Jackie...all gorgeous but I especially like your collection. You have photographed them beautifully as well...such a clever woman!
    Funny that you mentioned Loseley Park ice cream, you are the second person to say that. How could I have missed it?? I will be sure to report on both the ice cream and the interior of the house on my next visit.

    Best wishes Jackie for the perfect 'top down in my convertible' kind of days :) Lovely to think of you as I head out for a day on the road!

  57. Jackie ~

    if i could have a house full of nothing but cushions and fluffy pillows, I would! in fact, sean might say that we already are at the maximum for 'comfort' when it comes to pillows. the crumb and i love them {and secretly, he does too}. so you can imagine that the pillowcase you sent to gaia has remained a hit since day one. she still uses it and i suspect she always will. i love all of your glorious pillows and especially how you have the necklaces and beads hanging from the headboard ~ so chic! hope you are enjoying every moment of your new grandson!

    bisous,
    melissa

  67. Great photos of pillows, Jackie! I feel the same way about them. More importantly, so do my cats!!! The more soft places to sleep, the better! And I love that quote at the end of the post. Even though Todd and I are in a temporary home this year, I love returning to it because I know he and the cats are here. xoxo Gigi
