Artist Lori Blum has more than 15 years experience in the decorative pillow business. Inspired by her two-year-old labradoodle, Charlie, and her recently adopted Manx cat, Scout, she decided to launch a line of handmade, eco-friendly, pet-themed pillows.

She started by creating the designs for her own home, then "family and friends began to ask about custom pillow featuring their pets' names," she says.

Now the collection includes many styles to celebrate man's best friends. "Charlie and Scout have since asked for royalties," she jokes.

This pillow is very well made. I like how the printed cover is removable and the quality of the fabic is really nice. The print is clear and the pillow is even more beautiful in person. I bought this item as a keepsake for my daughter that can be placed on the bed as a throw pillow with her stuffed animals or on a shelf so that she can enjoy it for years to come. Mine was the new & improved LARGE pillow, not the small one so I am very pleased with it. My only complaint would be that I wish it were less expensive so I could afford to purchase more for my close friends and family. It truly is a unique statement piece.

It is a great gift idea, but looks a little cheap. The pillow insert is cheap foam and very firm. Honestly it looks like something I would buy for $25, not $100....Read complete review

                        Comments about UncommonGoods Birth Announcement Pillows:

                        This is a beautiful pillow, a great idea for a grandparent to give for a special occasion, such as the arrival of a new grandchild. It needs better cleaning instructions, though, to indicate only spot cleaning. When my daughter washed the cover inside out, cold water, delicate, some of the seams came undone. However, I rated this 5 stars because of the excellent customer service shown by Uncommon Goods--they replaced the pillow for me! And promised to emphasize spot cleaning.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        The company is called Uncommon Goods, but I would also call them Uncommon Customer Service! Especially excellent! Courteous, prompt and friendly--qualities not often seen in today's customer service interactions. Thank you!
