All of the sachets can be customized on the back for an event such as a wedding, bridal shower, anniversary or any occasion you chose. If you need a large quantity for an event please contact us.

"memories take us back, dreams take us forward" - author unknown

The quote "memories take us back, dreams take us forward" sums up the feeling of our pillow line! We hope that each time you look at one of our specific pillows, you will remember your favorite place or vacation or special event in your life. Or perhaps they will inspire you to create a new memory!

Over the years I've gone from retail management, to interior design, to starting my own custom sewing business when our daughters were small and I wanted to be home with them. I have sewn primarily for very talented decorators and an upscale home furnishings company.

I am really proud of what I accomplished and love the people I worked with, but something had always been missing. After much soul searching I realized that I needed the creative freedom to design my own products. These pillow collections reflect my love of natural fiber textiles, old maps and vintage postcards. My husband, who has a wealth of experience in sales and marketing, is my business partner on this venture.

New to our line at the end of 2018 were sachets! We make lavender year round and balsam during the holidays! They smell absolutely amazing and they're so much fun to make! They have quickly become a best seller for us!

We hope that our pillow collections and sachets remind you of all the things that you love!
