  1. I like the way you showed how pillows can accent your couch through your visual aid. Years ago, I did not know what a difference it could make by adding throw pillows to your couch until my father came for a visit. He lived in California and I lived in Pa. One day when I was at work, my dad decided to go shopping for the throw pillows. When I came home, my dad said, “I got some pillows for your couch, it makes the room look nicer, and don’t you think?” He was right. What a difference.
    My dad always drew horses. One time his sister had a throw pillow with one of his drawings on it. It was really nice. He always kept it on his bed.
    I really liked your site. It is very nice. This is really good information to have.


    1. Thanks Linda, I love that my site brought back that memory of your dad for you. This is exactly what I would like my site to do. Recall those memories and record them on a throw pillow. I appreciate your comment on my site, but I especially appreciated your story. Good luck to you.
