Radish Salad
The ButtonWillow Chronicles



This is the perfect pillow Aubern'e made me for Valentines day. She took a tee-shirt (that I loved) it did not fit her anymore and made a pillow. She just sewed it up, stuffed it and cut a fringe edge. So sweet !!!!!!

We have a winner for the Easter book. Congratulations Miss.Tina (who I have met and is the sweetest. I am hoping to have her over for tea soon xoxox) I will e-mail you Tina xoxoxox

The new book this week is Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone by Deborah Madison, you can look inside the book. The reason I post the radish salad recipe, (which we are really loving) was because I knew I was giving this book this week. Even if you are not a vegetarian (I am not) but are looking for interesting ways to use vegetables and vegetarian ingredients, Deborah knows her stuff. I have just about every book she has written. This is a very thick book full of info. Good luck.

PS. Because this book is sooo big, I will be mailing it book rate.

I would have never guessed that came from a t-shirt ~ what a pretty pillow!! You have very thoughtful and talented girls, Clarice!


I LOVE that cookbook. I make her pancake recipe with 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour, 1/2 cup buckwheat flour and 1/2 cup blue cornmeal, slathered with real maple syrup of course! I may just need to make some this week.


What a great idea for an outgrown T-shirt.




That's just the sweetest little pillow! I'm so impressed with Aubern'e's sewing skills!


What a wonderful gift. It looks fabulous but is so thoughtful. I don't know if a gift could get better than that.

Just found your blog and am enjoying all the creativity and ideas.
Such a sweet pillow. I have just started sewing and have made one pillow and am so excited about making more. Last night, before seeing your sweet t-shirt pillow, I myself was thinking about some shirts I have that become stained and would make cute pillows.
I have a new blog and hope you can visit me!

That is just a darling, darling pillow! She's so creative - I don't think I would have thought of a cut fringe edge!



Hello from Brooklyn, NY!

Great idea to make a pillow from a t-shirt! It looks so sweet.

That is such a lovely pillow and I love that Aubern'e was so creative by using a tshirt she had outgrown. I love it when you can take something and make it into something completely different. Great idea, Aubern'e!! What a perfect gift to give your sweet Mama:o) BTW, I LOVE, LOVE your new header, Clarice ~ it is so "springy!"


What a beautiful pillow! It makes the T-shirt into a perfect Valentine's gift!



What a sweet pillow from a sweet girl. BTW, my son loved the bacon chocolate bar!!
