Horse gift pillow

One of my writer friends, Kathy Kehrli, got me a fantastic present for my birthday, which was the end of last month: a personalized photo pillow, for which I got to choose the photo and the fabric. I just received the finished pillow today, and I'm so pleased with it that I thought I'd post a few pictures here.

We have a sage and ivory theme in our living room, kitchen, and (more recently) our guest bedroom. I therefore decided to pick up the green in my photo pillow to make it more versatile.

My brother-in-law took the picture about a year and a half ago, and it is still one of my favorite pictures of my horse. I think Panama has such a pretty trot, particularly when he lifts his tail, and this picture shows how pretty it really is.

The color theme in my office is primarily deep reds and beigey pinks, designed around one of my favorite places to work — in my old comfy rocking chair with my laptop on my lap. The rocking chair also has some green in it, though, so I think the pillow might work there in a pinch:

Who knows, maybe using my pillow here will help make me feel better about working when I'd rather be out at the barn visiting my horse!

I think it works with the rocking chair, but it's perfect with your living room decor. Glad you like it!

Kathy, I agree. And I love it! ;o)

I also need to try it on the guest bed, since the colors are perfect for there, too...
