Double take

Hello, friends!  Hope you've had a good week thus far.  I just finished planting 4 terrariums late last  night and I'm so pumped (probably because it's the first time I've ever done this!)  But that's the topic of my next blog post, when I have some photos to share. 

I got my new issue of House Beautiful  magazine yesterday and cannot wait to delve into it this weekend.  The cover, however, made me do a double take!  There is a pillow on the couch that looks so strikingly close to a pillow I finished about a week ago, proving to me that no idea is original anymore.  That's not to say there are no good ideas anymore, or that it's bad/sad in some way, it's just that so much of art and design mimics or has a foundation in something else that it's hard to come up with totally original ideas.  And that's okay.  It's the whole history repeats itself thing... 

Anyway, I'm so proud to have come up with the same idea as some excellent (probably highly paid) designer, all on my own!  So cool.  Here are the pics folks, you decide for yourself...  My pillow in red (cream linen and muslin circles layered on a red pillow, but in one corner only.)


Their pillow (circles layered on cream pillow, completely covering it)...
