I Got Mail

Last week I came home to a package on my doorstep from my Grammy Dee. Inside I found the prettiest up-cycled cable knit pillows. My Grandma has been giving away a lot of my Gramps’ old clothes and things, but she held on to a few of his sweaters. When she saw me post this picture awhile ago, she decided she could create the same thing for J and I out of Grampy’s sweaters and that way they’d continue to get use and love. So thoughtful. Much more meaningful than a sweater from goodwill.

Here’s the inspiration picture:

And here is Grammy’s handiwork:

We decided to only use cable knit on one side so we could get two pillows out of the sweater.




Grampy Pillows

Excuse the crazy shadows being thrown.. I couldn’t wait to post and it’s all gloomy outside today!

They are great! I love that they zip along the entire bottom so its easy to get the pillows in and out. Jeff and I LOVE them.
