Woodyliana {Pillows} and More Cougar Town Love

I'm super excited about a package I received from the amazing Woodyliana.






But first, check this out.  I'm always surprised by how many people I've met who love the Cougar Town painting.   

Here she is at her normal home, Omega Cinema Props.
 
 


In Jules' living room on the set of Cougar Town.
 
 
In my living room, the painting I had a friend paint for me.


If you are new to the blog or haven't previously read about my mad love for the painting, you can check it out here and here.

 
I bring this up because I've recently found another friend with a similar attraction to the painting.  Liana of Woodyliana Textiles!  You may know her from her former etsy shop and I blogged about her awhile ago when I bought these Betwixt beauties from her.
 


 
As Mary Ann of Classic Casual Home says, Li is the Pillow Master!  In case you're not quite convinced of her pillow mastery, here are some of her lovelies:
 
 



 
 




Those lumbars in Vervain Ishtar might possibly be my all time favorite pillows.  I was sad that Mary Ann wasn't selling them at her moving sale. 

So imagine my surprise when Li texted me this morning and sent a picture of this:
 

 
How awesome is this?  Li painted it after being inspired by the original Cougar Town painting she saw on TV and by the one my friend painted for me that Li had seen in my living room.  She customized the size to fit a specific space in her home (that corner in her living room where she used to photograph her pillows for her etsy shop, for those of you who remember that).  I love this size and now I want it!
I also love how she blended the colors and the drips...it's all so great!   I just love it and I'm amazed at Li's many talents!



OK, so back to the pillows.  No matter how many I have, I never seem to have the right ones.  However, I firmly believe one can never have too many pillows (holla!) so I am always excited to buy more. 
 

I purchased this gorgeous fabric from Kravet last year and for the life of me I can't remember the name of it.
 

 

It's a yummy wool blend paisley, with black, cream and gold. 
 

I sent the fabric to Li and voila, a glorious package arrived.
Seriously, isn't her packaging beautiful?  I always kinda hate destroying it to get to the goodies inside.
 




So much attention to detail.
 







 
 



  
   
My crummy iPhone photos do not do them justice at all.  I really need to learn my new camera...I've been saying that for almost a year. 
 

I am so pleased with how the pillows turned out. 
They are soft and cozy....the perfect wintery touch in my mostly white living room (it's 84 today, but whatever).
 

If you want the best, Liana the Pillow Master is your girl.
 


Hope you're having a great week!


As always, thanks for stopping by.

  4. I there ANYTHING that Liana can't do??? She is amazing! I'm ruined for other pillow-makers. Did she tell you that I have four pillows of your same wool paisley on my two sofas right now? I bought a charcoal throw to go with them and want to beg Li to make a couple more to go with them. The Vervain pillows are in my new master now here in SF but it's all subject to change...I just don't want to part with any of her pillows. LOVE your painting!!!

  14. I was very curious to see some highly informative, entirely impressive, and fully productive articles on any website. Despite browsing on a lot of websites, I was terribly frustrated from the content of others’ sites. Yet when I came across the articles on your site, these were truly gratifying yet were of highest significance. My thumbing ovation
    for your professional team!!!
