I think there are some famous people who were gorgeous like Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy. However, I adore my children's faces the most. Their eyes are bright with love and the cheeks are rosy from smiling.

My mothers. She is always smiling and even when she isn't she has this calm look on her face that puts me at ease. I find comfort in her visage.

Cass said...

kate winslet is one of the most beautiful women to me ...

Renee said...

Whose face do I adore? Of course all in my family; however, if I was only allowed to pick one I would chose my oldest son whose eyes are always laughing and smile always melts me.

Katie @ makingthishome.com said...

I love looking at my mother's face in old photos.
Thank you

Teri said...

That would be my great grandmother.

The silhouette pillow is grand! My mom used to teach kindergarten and as a Christmas present for the parents she would do a silhouette of each child. Or I should say, she'd have me do a silhouette of each child. I'd sit in the storage closet with each child and quickly trace their little head shapes from the shadow of the overhead projector beam.

I did it before they got to know me. Sitting in a closet with some strange woman... they were as still as little statues! LOL Later on when they knew me, it would have been impossible to get them to not wiggle.

Teri said...

When I was in Russia in '94, I was at the overlook from the Moscow University that looks down on the Kremlin. Unknown to me, while I bargained with a street vendor, a man freehanded cut my silhouette. When he was finished he came over and offered it for sale. I jumped on it.

Price - about .50c!

tulin said...

My daughter and sons!

Jamie said...

Gorgeous pillows. I love Audrey Hepburn's face, classic and full of grace.

Monika said...

How do you choose only one? As sweet as my children's faces are, I would choose my husband. I can just look at him and see all the wonderful things he says, does and provides (and he's sexy and has a great smile and eyes that twinkle) that I must choose him. He (nearly) always makes me smile.

Krista Shaffer said...

I adore the face of my unborn baby girl. She will be here in less than three weeks and I'm so excited!!

Linda said...

Tough one- I adore, the many poeple in my everyday life with their wonderful character and kind actions. I am partial to my husband though, especially when he smiles, he gets these dimples I like.

ellen said...

I love my niece's faces.

Martha said...

This is absolutely precious. I love silhouettes, and a silhouette of the sweetest pup in the world would be so cute on there... which leads me to the face I adore (besides my husband of course). My silly, adorable rescue pup Gibson. He melts my heart every time we look at each other, I bet he'd melt yours, too.

Kathryn said...

I love the sillouettes. My son of course, especially that first look of pure happiness when he sees me in the morning. I certainly don't look that cute when I wake up! Thanks Marta!

Crystal said...

My 7-year old newphew, Ian. He looks just like me when I was that age. I think it's cute!

Kristy said...

I adore my two-year-old's face, which is currently about two inches away from mine. :)

Katie {My Paisley Apron} said...

I'd definitely have to choose my husband and toddler's faces! What a cute idea, this pillow is gorgeous!!

Tiff said...

claytonandmandy said...

Without hesitation: Audrey Hepburn. I cannot get enough of her. Thanks for the chance to win!

Jen said...

My husband's...especially in the morning when I roll over, before he has woken up...and I get a good look at him peacefully sleeping!!!

erica said...

oh how i'd love to look at my little family plastered on a pillow. so darling!

Brianna and Tyson Smith said...

My twin niece and nephew. Dimples and all! They have the best personalities!

Joni said...

I have 6 little faces that I love and adore each day of my life. Especially when I have been gone all day and I come home to see them grinning ear to ear with excitement to see me.

lizzy said...

does this have anything to do with doppelgänger week?

i adore my 7 month-old mocha niece eden's face. it's all dimples & an ever expanding gummy smile & the biggest darkest owlet eyes.

J Bird said...

We're Not in Kansas Anymore said...

Oooh, I've had my eye on this pillow for a while! My 2 favorite faces are my chubby-cheeked kids (drool and all)! I actually used your silhouette tutorial for grandparents' christmas gifts this year with some handmade frames from etsy and pretty patterned paper in the background!

Mique (as in Mickey) said...

I LOVE that pillow! In my dreams I adore Chaning Tatum's face. ;) In reality I adore my Josh's fash and my 3 kids (equally as dreamy).

David and Shalynna said...

What a perfect pillow! I would love to win. :)

My two month old baby's face is one that I adore, obviously, but if we're talking famous then Reese Witherspoon in Walk the Line or Rachel McAdams in The Notebook. Both gorgeous women and I love their styles in both movies!

Also, I'm sad that you don't have the card in your shop with the crossed out Rome, Mr. Darcy, Edward, and then the un-crossed 'You.' That is the cutest, most clever card ever.

For Your Inspiration said...

Of course, I adore my daughter's face the most...could just smooch on it all day.!

Rachel said...

I just read on a blog this morning that silhouettes are "so last year" - I almost fell out of my chair. I ADORE silhouettes!
I'd have to say I adore my boyfriend's face the most, not just because he's my beloved bf, but because I can still see the 6-year-old in him each time I look at him - devious, fun, and so adorable!
Thanks for hosting this cool giveaway! Fingers crossed... :)

Chris said...

This pillow really caught my eye. What a fabulous idea. I would love to have a pillow with my kidlet's silhouettes! They are the faces I can just gaze at forever...

Jennifer said...

My children's faces - sweet, mischevious and daring, easily forgiving and unconditionally loving.

Heidi said...

Min, I love this so much. I love Amanda Peat. Doesn't she have the cutest bangs and quirky smile? Of course, she comes after the 5 way tie between my four cherub cheeked children and wonderful, adorable Jac.

H Yoho said...

I am part of the crowd that thinks the most beautiful faces are that of my children. Love looking at them. (espeicially when it's not during a tantrum...)

sarah marie. said...

i want this! i adore my babies face the most..

mands said...

I must say - this is tough - but just to choose one... i would have to say my husband!

Tiffany said...

My favorite faces are the ones I live with--my husband and boys. Sometimes I catch myself staring.

Amy Croley said...

The faces of my daughters, nieces and nephew. I love how children always wear their emotions on their face.

my one-year-old son oliver's face... totally chubby, rosy cheeks, a charlie brown head, and big, clear blue eyes. he's totally precious.

LOVE this! my newest project is trying to create silhouettes of my family to hang on our wall...but i love it on a pillow. what a fun idea!
i have lots of not-so-secret crushes, but i truly adore the face of my sweet almost-three-year old daughter. she's been through lots of struggles in her short little life and still has a smile that will just make you melt...and cheeks that don't stop (i hope they never do!).

Hannah said...

I love faces with interesting noses. I married into a family of great noses.

Rissa and Jared said...

my nephew! i don't get to see him much, but I love his cut lil face!

Liv said...

I adore... obviously, my little boys face... but my friends' little boy has the sweetest face too.

elizabeth said...

I've never really loved my profile for silhouettes but I've come to accept my nose over the years . . . especially since my little man has inherited it and his face is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.

Lena said...

When I was seven weeks pregnant I had a dream where a baby was staring me in the face and made a kissy lips face and opened her mouth into an O. The night after my daughter was born, we were laying in bed and I opened my eyes to see that face.

Erica said...

I adore my husbands face. I don't know about anyone else, but when I look at his face I see smooth dark skin, smiling eyes and love when he smiles back at me.

brooke said...

Oh I love silhouettes!

So cliche but I love my kids' faces the most. There would probably be something wrong with me if I didn't say that. I love their dimples the most.

Em-Jae said...

beautiful pillows!

at the risk of sounding silly, I'm going to say that I really like my dog's face.
First, I have no children, so she is my baby girl.
Second, for a majority of my life I was extremely petrified of dogs (we're talking panic attacks, crying, the whole 9). So, for me to have her is such a personal accomplishment :)

Not to mention the whole unconditional love thing... That's pretty sweet too.

Are we there yet? said...

My husband and baby girl's face. the are just so adorable and I would love to have a pillow of them!

Rosa said...

I still dont have kids, but I adore my husband's face when he was about two years old. I have a framed picture on my living room and sometimes I just hope my kids turn out that cute!

MJ said...

I am convinced that the face of my 2-year old boy when he's fast asleep could literally make my heart burst. So sweet. :)

What a great giveaway!!

Irene said...

I love faces that are lined from smiling so much...it makes me feel like they have a story to tell, as well as a fabulous attitude throughout life.
