Refresh with Pillows {And An Easy Candle DIY}

Hi Friends! I hope you had a great weekend...

The other day, while my Mom and I were shopping for a vintage chandelier, I spotted two pillows that made me smile. You see, these pillows reminded me of the three young boys who have captured my heart and are growing way too fast! 

I didn't buy the pillows right away. I went back a week or so later with one of my sons. I knew I wanted the pillow with the three tipis (just too perfect, with our three boys), but I was deciding between a second pillow with feathers or one with arrows. So, I asked my son which one he liked better. "The arrows," he answered confidently. "Because they're weapons." So arrows it was!

Since it's the time of year where candlelight starts to steal the show, and crisp autumn air makes us want to curl up with a good book... I thought I'd share again these simple, affordable book page candles. They cost about a dollar a piece and take just minutes to make! Find the tutorial here.

Thank you for stopping by today!


ps - The tipi and arrow pillows, along with many more styles, can be found at Bows and Burlap Designs. This is not a sponsored post. I just wanted to share this source, since I think you might enjoy the many styles of pillows. Not to mention, they are a great value!

  1. Pillows are one of my favorite things to change out. It's a quick and easy way to get a fresh look. Love your new pillows, they are so unique and perfect for fall. And how sweet that your son helped you with them. My kiddos are teenagers now and they're both into decorating and helping me pick things out too. Sally

  2. I love your new pillows! They're so cute and I like how they coordinate well together with the Indian theme. I've noticed that arrows are very popular right now. I'll have to check out that Etsy shop. Thanks for sharing it!

  3. Love the pillows and those pretty candles wrapped with book pages!

  4. Yes yes yes! The tepees look like three little Indians. and I can see the relationship to the pillow and your boys right away' love the arrows as well and perfect with the ticking, your French farmhouse is feeling like a wonderful ranch house for the season of fall.

    I adore how your personality shines through what you do to make your home fun and relaxing for your family.
    I bet the boys all want tents of their own now!

    See you soon dear,,keep creating with inspiring things that make life fun


  5. I love the pillows and the candles are just to cute. Have a beautiful evening. Jo
