Mention the state of Washington and most folks over 50 think of apples - that's what the state was primarily known for back in the day. Nowadays though, you're as likely to find folks thinking of the computer industry, wineries, Yakima asparagus and Walla Walla sweet onions. All are located in the Evergreen State, and all contribute to the state's economy in a very big way. My biggest surprise when I moved to the Northwest was that hops are grown in the Yakima Valley. If you've never seen hops growing, it's a beautiful site. Another surprise was the beautiful beaches at Ocean Park and Long Beach. The Cat Studio Embroidered State Pillow - Washington is part of the Cat Studio Geography Collection. It's a great way to honor your home state or favored destination. The pillow is 19" square and made of 100% cotton. There is an easily removable insert filled with down-like poly filling and the top surface is covered with hand embroidery in 8 lively and bright colors that highlight the points of interest in the state. If WA is your home, or ever was, take a trip down memory lane with one of these beautiful artisan crafted pillows. And if pillows aren't your style, see some of the other beautiful Cat Studios creations. The plates, mugs, glasses, dishtowels and other wonderful 1950s Souvenir shop styled items all celebrate the states, cities, countries, regions, resorts and national parks of our lives. You're sure to find something to your taste that will help you celebrate one of the favorite places in you life.
