Decorative Pillows — No Sewing Machine Required :)

There are a few simple rules in life:  1. Honesty is the best policy, 2.  If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all,  3. when in doubt, leave it out, and 4:  You can never have enough pillows.  I’m sure most men will have trouble accepting No. 4, but it’s TRUE.   Pillows add a sense of colour, texture, and coziness and help make a space more inviting.

Every Good Friday we join our dear friends for their family fish and chip dinner and it has become one of the highlights of our Easter celebrations.  The first year we attended this dinner I made a chocolate trifle and it was such a huge success that I’ve been making it ever since.  It’s now part of the dinner tradition, and I daren’t show up without it.
