Yep, I still have a pillow fetish!

When I put away my Christmas decorations,  I couldn't decide what pillows I wanted to place on my sofa and chairs. Of course,  I could always go out in my garage and pull pillows out of the storage bins:

I'm kind of embarrassed to show this, but hey, it is what it is!

So I went to my favorite store, At Home,  to purchase new pillows.  I did try to use existing pillows,  but it just wasn't working for me.

It's nice,  but kind of blah.   I wanted more color and ended up with this:

Flashback to my bathroom color disaster.  I thought the teal would look good with the chocolate walls.   Boy, was I wrong. So I bag up all the pillows and go back to the store.  Here's what I came home with:

The pillows are the exact same type and pattern as the photo above but a much softer color.  The best part is I only paid $53 for five pillows!  At these prices, this is why I have a pillow fetish. 

Don't be shy, comments are greatly appreciated!

Eureka! I found the perfect floor lamp!

I rearranged my living room several months ago.   The chair I sit in when I'm vegging out on TV or reading decorating magazines needed a floor lamp.  I had a floor lamp in my bedroom and I moved it to the living room.  The lamp wasn't doing much for my space.   It was functional, but it had zero WOW! factor.  The lamp has a straight post and a lampshade with beaded tassels.   

I placed the lamp back in my bedroom.  It's a nice lamp, but no "WOW!"

This week I was working in Helena-West Helena, AR.  The bank building I was working in has a wonderful interior design shop on the third floor of the building called "Imagine That Design".  You would have to know what Helena-West Helena is like to appreciate that a place like this even exists!

During my lunch breaks,  I would go to the third floor to see all of the beautiful furniture and accessories in this shop.  While there, I spotted a floor lamp that was perfect for my living room. It has a linen drum shade and crystal pendants for a touch of bling.


I'll be back there next week to see what else I can come home with.  I think I'm going to need a SUV!

Don't be shy, feel free to comment!
