Why Pineapple Hill?

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. According to legend, the symbol began with the sea captains of New England who would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let the community know of their safe return home and to invite friends to visit and share their hospitality.

Likewise, we hope Pineapple Hill Designs boutique will make you feel “Welcome”! We know how important it is to find something special for that certain someone or just the right accessory to complete a room. We believe everyday is a day to celebrate, and we have just the thing to help you create something special out of the ordinary.

Tuesday Tip - Fabulous Felt Circles

Felt Pads are Fabulous!
via Real Simple

You know those little circle felt furniture pads ...   they're sold in the hardware department. 
I put them on the bottom of the legs of our Dining Room chairs.  They have saved the wood floor in there. 

I LOVE these great uses from Real Simple Magazine!

  • Secure slinky garments. Stick a felt circle onto each arm of a hanger to keep clothes from sliding off.
    • Prevent tabletop scratches. Attach a circle to the bottom of a vase so it doesn’t scuff surfaces .

    • Keep your kitchen quiet. Hush a banging cabinet door by sticking a circle on a corner on the inside of the door.
    • Protect the walls. Position felt on each corner of a picture frame so the edges won’t mark the paintwork.
    The first and last are my favorites!
