A New Life

See that pillow?

That cute one, right there?

It has been given a new life.

It used to be striped.  In shades of peach and mint green.  I will not burn your eyes with a picture of its former ugliness.

It had a facelift when I moved away for college and was covered in navy and tan plaid.  Cute, but tired.

Yesterday it got a whole new life with this fun print that has been hiding in my craft closet.  It has been dying to come out, but I have been a little afraid that it was too loud, too bold, too... not me.

But look at it now!  It has found a comfy home in my living room (along with some matching brother pillows and sister kitchen curtains.)  If only I could do something about the white walls and ugly apartment carpeting...

Doesn't make you just want to sit down and have a cup of coffee?

I think that this was a lesson that I need to take more risks :) We'll start small...

"We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life."
