Scrumptious Ruffles

Yesterday I posted on the talented Li from A Creamy White whose scrumptious ruffled pillows I had been admiring.  While Flea marketing this weekend, I came across a very non-vintage find.  This beautiful ruffled pillow cover pictured above was buried in a pile of nasty old bits.  I may have passed it by previously, but after seeing how gorgeous these ruffles look in Li's house, my eye went right to it.
After a good washing it came out fresh and bright.
I rather like it with my wacky floral pillow I picked up last week.
It looks fresh and Spring-y on my white sofa.  And it was only $8....
There is a tag sewn in.  It says Elena Brunelli.  I have never heard of this designer/manufacturer, but it is very well made.
I am thinking how pretty this would be in pale, pale pink......
I added a feather insert to give it the right amount of Squish.

  3. You know, I have to say...I never dreamed I would love ruffles so much. But now that I see them in all white, on pillows and shower curtains I LOVE THEM! That is so cute, and you are right...looks great with the other pillow. They are a good balance for each other! I just may have to get one of those for myself! ~mary~

  4. Wow....lucky you.. Great find and I love it with the mod pillow. HWW

  5. Ikea has a blanket that matches this pillow that it's just 2DIE4!!! Just sharing....

  6. Great ruffles ~ they are everywhere this Spring. And I am glad to have them. I would kill for the perfect ruffle tablecloth in time for Easter...anyone....anyone????
