Incredible birthday gift.

So you can imagine, at this point we do miss our beloved San Francisco and so you can’t imagine my excitement when I opened up this incredible gift from my MIL on my birthday.

Leila made the pillows from the Mr.’s grandmother’s handkerchiefs and linen pillowcases and they simply could not be lovelier.

I love the meaning behind the gift and I also love the festive trim she chose. Not only that but she was clever enough to ship the cases without the forms to save on round-the-world shipping. I looked around the apt. for the best place to feature the cases and am still on the hunt, but here are a few locales I’m considering.

Isn’t she simply the most creative and resourceful person you’ve ever even heard of? You can read all about how she made the pillows on her blog here.

  1. Well, I’m not sure this gift merits quite all of those superlatives, but my hope was that it would meet with some approval ~lol~
    I endeavor to give satisfaction…
    And you are very kind to love them. I am glad to see that you found some forms for them!

  2. Those pillowcases are “so me” even though I have no ties to San Francisco. They would look really great against a red throw! Way to go MIL!!
