Enter the world of decorative pillows with sayings. The messages are short, sometimes funny, sometimes serious but always significant. Many, Many years ago I bought a few of these pillows, one of which is a lumbar that states "Life is too short to drink cheap wine." It's embroidered in gold thread on wine colored velvet. It sits in my desk chair. I love this little pillow for it often brings smiles to my heart. Word pillows, as I like to call them, make perfect accents in just about any decor.
The sayings are applied in many different ways onto the fabric, from painted to printed on the fabric; appliques glued and stitched; and hand or machine embroidered on. As you can see in the above images, they can coordinate well with other pillows and in existing decors. Here are some examples of pillows on which the writing is printed on the fabric:
The sayings found on word pillows are seemingly infinite but most often reflect our most personal and emotional states--or a state in which we want to be:
- Call your mother
- I never finish anythin
- Live Laugh Love
- Be nice or leave
- Color outside the line
Keeping the message short but significant makes it even more poignant:
Thinking of adding something wonderful to say in your decor? Well, I hope so. If not for yourself, know that they do make great gifts. Remember, often you can get a pillow with sayings that are customized if you can't find it on a store shelf.
