Is your porch missing something???

Hello Friends!



With yet another Sunday at the Marketplace behind me {where the temps got a tad higher than the weatherman predicted} I wanted to share with you something that has been keeping me



bizzzzzz-eeeee!



These little guys!



Yesterday I had a customer suggest that I do a blog post about my



"Welcome to Our Porch" pillow.



This story is great!



Read on..........



This particular customer is local {Charlotte} and I usually see her about twice a month. {The pillows had been sold out the last couple times she has been in the shop.} I knew she was heading to Michigan last month to visit friends and family. While visiting one of her friends one day they went out onto the front porch for lunch. While out there, my customer noticed this pillow on an old chair by her friends front door!



She asked her friend where she got it. The friend said,"I got it off Etsy, I kept the business card let me go get it." So off she goes to get the business card.....{MY business card} and comes back out onto the porch to give it to her friend.....{MY customer}!



Well you can just imagine the surprise and this was the conversation that ensued....



"Hey I shop there!"



"No way!!"



"Marshville is only about an hour from me!"



"Get OUT!"



"My porch NEEDS one of these pillows!"



"She has some listed in her Etsy shop now!"



"Get OUT!"



"No kiddin!"



"I'm ordering one like...NOW!"



"I'll go get my get my laptop."



And there you have it.



CRAZY RIGHT???!!



I loved it. Such a cool story.




So in case your porch happens to missing something...it just might be one of these!



I have them listed in my Etsy shop now and they are ready to ship.



The front is hand stenciled....







The back is an old feed sack .
Handstitched closure.

For a more detailed description head on over to my Etsy shop and take a peek!
Hope your day is filled with family and friends.

What a cute pillow! I only wish I had a porch to buy it for! I love old houses with big porches and rocking chairs!
