Ampersand? Huh You Say! & & &!

That's Just What I Said!
What is Ampersand?
Well, it is
It is another one of those
design things that I just love . . .
Like the
Eiffel Tower
(I have one I found at TJ Max)

The Fleur de Lis
( I have on plates, finials, pictures)

So, because I really like these things
I like to bring them into the things I create.
I made a pillow with the &
One day on one of my trips to the thrift store (DI)
I found these 8" chipboard shapes of the &
I paid .75 for a package of 3
Thought I would use them in my scrapbooking.
But then I decided I wanted the design on a pillow. . . .
I traced the & on some fabric, painted it black

I have a cute pillow
