Ampersands And Other Cool Things...

We really need more cushions in our house to cosy it up a bit. We bought this leather couch about 1 year & a half ago, when we moved into this house & it has been cushion-less ever since. Of course I had grand plans for making some, which included the purchase of fabric & zippers, but still the couch sat naked. Finally I saw Shannon's new flocked Ampersand (love that word) cushions & I couldn't resist.


Whilst visiting Ikea for an insert for it I picked up the other cushion (because one cushion would just look weird, right!?) & discovered this cool thermos. So I am set for Saturday morning footy now too.

Thermos

Now I just need to keep the kids' grubby fingers of the new soft furnishings as I add to our cushion collection.

The cushions look great and I totally understand the need for more cushions... if only my husband would... as soon as I have new cushions I see different cushions and fall in love with them too - nice fabric, great design... Maybe if I got another couch...
