  • Hi, Trish, just wanted you to know that I received the pillowcases yesterday.  They are beautiful!  I think I like them better than the first pair.  Thanks again.  Hope you have a Happy Mother's Day this weekend.

    Hey Trish,
    I just got the pillow covers and they are INCREDIBLE!  I can't believe the quality of your work and fabrics.  I absolutely love them and thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!  I will treasure them forever.
    Very soon I would like to get a white linen valance for my kitchen window, I'll be in touch.
    Hi Trish,

    I received my pillow today and I LOVE IT!! Thanks so much!! It's perfect:) I'm shocked but very happy to receive it so quick too! I'm always redecorating and changing things up so I will be in touch on other projects I'll be working on in the near future :)

    Hi, Trish!! I forgot to email you yesterday to let you know that I got the pillows…they are AWESOME! I can’t believe how much better they look smaller.

  • Hi Trish,  Wow........that was fast!! I just received my pillow,and it is absolutely beautiful,I just love it. Thank you so so much.     Theresa H

  •  I'm sorry that I didn't call, but It was an unexpected pleasure to receive them (parsons slipcovers) and I was on my way out to my hair.Then I went food shopping, baking etc. I am so happy with them, they are spectacular! The fact that my husband likes them, he usually says, oh that's nice....not this time he really thought they were beautiful! Believe me, you will be the first person I call to make anything else!! I am truly, madly, deeply in love with them. I was holding off on a rug until I saw the whole enchilada, but now I can proceed.I wish you all the luck in the world with you new business on Etsy, I hope we both become millionaire entrepreneurs(because we're already happy and passionate about our work)!!!!Take good care, and thank you again.

    •  I received my tote today and love it!    Thank you for the great piece.   I'm keeping it hung up in my entry way by my black, white and tan kitchen....looks great just hanging there!!!
