Pillow Talk

18 Dec

Can’t afford a new bedspread?  Pillows are a fantastic way to change things up a bit, on a tighter budget.

I love it…

Here are a few pillows on my  “I would love to buy you but have nowhere to put you” list.  I swear, there is very little sitting room left on my couch at the moment.

So while we’re on pillows, I had this conversation with my girlfriends the other day.  Ladies who have bunked with a mate at some point… please confirm:

My hypothesis is that decorative pillows get thrown to the floor faster than you can say “g’night” which makes it hard to justify spending a fortune on them.  No worries – here are some very affordable (and even durable) solutions!

I want it…

I love the burlap pillow look right now.  Just hoping the cuteness outweighs the possible scratchiness factor 🙂
So far the best selection seems to be on Etsy.
