Announcement   We are proud to introduce our new line of "destination" pillows!

Collecting old postcards has been our long time hobby as it reminds us of special places we have been, people we were with, and of places we dream of visiting. This initial listing is only the beginning of the collection and many more pillows will be listed in the coming weeks..
If you are looking for a special destination not yet listed, please contact us to check if we have the postcard in our collection.

We make the entire pillow collection from 100% organic Belgian linen. Linen is a fiber that has been in use by people for millennia, stood the test of time, and provided comfort, coolness and durability. As the ocean and coastal areas are dear to our hearts, we adorn the pillows with nautical charms, real seashells, and a hand tied rope button made by our friend Dennis, a retired U.S. Merchant Marine sailor.

We hope our collection rekindles fond memories and dreams for you too!

All the best,
Shannon and Andy

About

"Discover Your Passion"

The words "Discover Your Passion" are printed on a little metal sign which hangs in my new workroom. Those 3 simple words inspired me to move forward and do what I love!

Over the years I've gone from retail management to designing rooms for clients to starting my own custom home sewing business when our daughters were small and I wanted to be home with them. I have sewn primarily for a very talented decorator/close friend and a home furnishings company specializing in accent tables, pillows ( that's where I come in ) , lighting and selected upholstered pieces. I am grateful to love what I do and to love the people I work with....

But still.... something has always been missing..... and after much soul searching over the last year or so I realized that I miss the creativity of designing my own products. My husband is joining me on this new venture. He has a wealth of experience in marketing, licensing and sales and his help will be invaluable to me. It will enable me to focus all of my attention on the creative side of the business . I can't wait!

The first batch of the "Destination" collection pillows are listed and there will be many more listed in the weeks to come. We have an extensive collection of vintage postcards and they were the inspiration for our pillow designs. We print the postcards on cotton canvas and stitch them onto the pillows along with whimsical nautical embellishments. Each postcard image can be made into one of three or four styles. All pillows are made to order by me and are 100% organic Belgian linen.

Our future plans include expanding our postcard based styling by releasing select holiday collection pillows such as Christmas and Valentine's Day. We also plan to introduce wedding/ring bearer pillows using many one-of-a-kind pieces of handmade lace which I have been collecting for many years.

Everything begins with a dream!
