Free Online Magazine - House of Fifty Summer 2012

 

The summer edition of House of Fifty is a very impressive lifestyle magazine that is definitely on  my Sunday morning reading list. Their photography is amazing with double page spreads of  stunning design and decorating ideas. They are unexpectedly different with their layout… very engaging!

So, I’ve put the coffee on and my first article to read  is “Does your Decor Tell Your Age”…. OH OH! Gawwwd, I don’t mind if my decor tells my age… I just don’t want it discussing my MENOPAUSE!!! Arghhhh!

Mothers Day Throw Pillows – All About Mom

by Christine on April 29, 2012

Mom Rules Humorous  text pillow

Humorous text pillow every mother would love because MOM RULES!!!

Honor  Mom on Mother’s Day or any day of the year with throw pillows that have a text message that says I love and respect you! After all, it is Mom that usually settles the kids’ squabbles, balances the checkbook and enforces bedtime.

I  remember when my brother out grew Mom’s height by the time he was 13, at which time he believed he was exempt from mowing the lawn. Mom would stand tall with one hand on her hip and the  other holding a broom. She never said it, but we knew that look meant, “DO IT or I will knock your block off”.  I actually never saw my mom raise a hand but she would poke the air with “that finger” like she was dialing God on a touch tone phone.  And when MOM finished a sentence with “… and that’s a Holy Promise” we knew that was calling on the ultimate enforcer.

My Mom is such an angel and to this day is a pillow of strength, oops, that’s a pillar of strength and encouragement. On her fridge, she has a remnant of a greeting card… “Always Have a Dream” and daily, she  inspires me, my kids and my grand kids.

Yes… Mom always makes me feel special and so does my dear husband. Every morning and evening is signaled with a kiss and an “I love you”

I Love My Wifey Text Pillow

A Pillow with a Daily Message of Love

Like my Mom, my husband is a VERY smart man! He comes home from work and there I am at my sewing machine in my pajama bottoms, my old, gray, threadbare, sweater and with my ponytail sticking out like a paintbrush and he says…

Flirty Pillow Talk: hey gorgeous text

Tell her she's pretty with this flirty HEY GORGEOUS text pillow

 

Or when I’m crabby, he lies and tells me this…

Yellow Hello Sunshine Text Pillow

Hello Sunshine Text Pillow.... When her smile lights up your day

Or, when I pay more attention to my laptop than to him he says…

I Love Nerds Pillow Talk

A few weeks ago, my son called me to ask how to cook a turkey. Hysterical!!! I can cut baseboards, prune a hedge, build a fence but I cannot cook a turkey so I said…

Ask Mom Pillow Talk

Ask Mom Pillow Talk... because Mom's know everything!

I wish I could be more like my Mom. She ‘s an amazing gardener and in the summer, traffic always slows down in front of her house so that people can have a longer look at her colorful, prize winning, gardens.

Bright Bohemian Floral Pillows

Bright Eco Chic Floral Pillow... Flowers for Mom

Mom is always so friendly too.  At church she is generous with hugs for the aged and the lonesome. Mom just opens her arms and her kids, grandchildren and great grandchildren run to her for a big bear hug. My mom’s hugs always make the world right and bright again.

Mom is kind and friendly and loves all of God’s creatures….

I’m trying to adopt Mom’s  loving attitude but I often see the neighbors cat as …

I actually love pets… but I have rules. No cats or dogs were allowed on the couch. With a drapery / pillow business we no longer have pets though.

No Cat or dog allowed text pillows

I love pets but not on the couch!!!

My Mom has the patience of a saint. I just don’t know how she does it.  She shoulders our tears, listens to our whining and prays to God on our behalf.  Yet some days, all it takes is one goofy message  from X (everyone knows at least one annoying person)  and I’m on the edge of p*ssy mad for the rest of the day.

Go Ahead...Make My Day Text Pillow - For Those Don't Mess with Mom Days

Mom is always so cheerful and happy in spite of what might be painful to her.

Inspirational Be Happy Throw Pillow

This Be Happy Throw Pillow Reminds Me to Be More Like Mom

Every day, but especially on Mother’s Day, I realize the infinite supply of unconditional love Mom has for all of her children.

Love  Message-  Pillow Talk Pillow

I Love My Mom Pillow

On Mother’s Day remember to tell your Mom, or your wife, how much you love her. Say it with pillows or with flowers (pillows last longer)… or any way that you can. Make Mother’s Day all about Mom.  Hugs to all the Moms reading this.
