PILLOW ADDICTION



Hello, My name is Kathysue and I am a "Pillow Addict!"

Don't laugh I know I am not alone in this somewhat harmless addiction. I have to confess I bought 3 new pillows this week. Two for the play room re-do, so those were almost a NEED, right? I got one from TJMaxx for my backyard that is to die-for. You know how I love little birds and black and white. This pillow has both. It has a bird embroidered no-less, and it has a black embroidered number and a letter. How could I resist it? Here I will show you and you be the judge........

Can you believe this pillow!! All the detailing is embroidered! Just look at the wonderful colors! How could I pass this up.  Here is a little background. I actually saw this on Monday and I did not purchase it , trying so hard to resist the urge to buy yet again another pillow. I went to bed thinking about it and I woke up thinking about it. I could resist NO MORE!! I ran to TJ Maxx holding my breath(Now, I didn't really run and I really didn't hold my breath, just a little drama for effect)! They only had two and I just knew someone else saw the beauty in this wonderful pillow, Would it still be there? It was and now it is MINE!!!(evil laugh)!
So my dear blogging friends, can you understand why I had to get it?

I am showing you this picture to show you the beauty BEHIND the lovely, perfect bird pillow. This is actually a dog pillow for the floor,but my kiddo's love laying on these to watch TV. How could I possibly pass up this extra-large pillow with wonderful detailed stitching that goes in line with the quilt and, it is the perfect shade of green. It gets even better! it was on clearance for $15.00 Unbelieveable, right?
 I did not stop there. I had a fun shopping day with a dear friend looking for sheets for the playroom girl's bed. I already told you I went into Tarjay. Well, there it was the perfect pillow to go with the Boy's bedding. I could not have designed it any better myself. This pillow was also embroidered with just the hint of black and white. Here it is in all it's glory..........

Can you believe how perfect this pillow is?! The touch of the black welt and the blanket stitching in black around the white embroidery of the design, well I rest my case. It is just too perfect for words. Look at a close-up of the detailing..........

So dear readers do you agree? Don't you think I did what I had to do and that was to buy all three perfect pillows for my home?
Please agree and leave a comment! I am going to use this to prove to Hubby that you all agreed with me. They say there is safety in numbers.

"Enjoy the Process" Of : Admitting to an addiction and doing absolutely nothing to prevent it from happening.

Btw: I think I might have a problem with mirrors and lamps too. More on that later.

What's a girl to do? Some Pillows just have to come home with you.
Hugs,

Addiction and Designer are synonyms!! Of course, you had to have them. It's like the perfect piece of jewelry for the new outfit. Loose no more sleep, my dear. In the bigger scheme of things, a $15 pillow trumps $$$kitchen remodel every time. Look at how much money you saved!
Fun post Kathysue...as always....

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Well, of course you had to buy them. They were too cute to pass up. ;)

Kathysue, you are just tooooooooo funny. I love all of your pillows. You do have some gorgeous ones, and since that is such an inexpensive way to totally change a room, then how in the world could anyone not agree that you really needed them. I can even see some of these in your family room. So since they are so versatile, you really did save a lot of money. Right? They really do look perfect. Hugs, Marty

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

You did exactly what you had to do, Kathysue.:-) I love the pillows and I love the idea of the dog bed as floor pillow! Brilliant!

Hi Kathysue,
A girl can never have too many pillows! And especially the one she is dreaming about! LOL

Pillow talk is one of my favorite subjects, just look at my blog and you will see.

Love the parrot pillow.

Honey, you're "preaching to the choir!" I have a "problem with pillows too, but also lamps, chandeliers, plates, pottery, bed linens, rugs, etc. - did I leave anything out!? I'm so glad you bought all three pillows. Of course you had to have them. They are all three wonderful and now they are yours! (evil laugh!)

A pillow addiction is perfectly acceptable. Pillows are a great way to perk up a room without dropping a lot of dough!

(And your finds are fab; you had no choice but to buy them!)

Hamptontoes said...

That is an amazing pillow! Wow, $15...great score! It looks like a pillow from Anthropologie, right? The other pillows are quite fab too! I too, love pillows! I laughed when I read you are addicted to lamps and mirrors too...I think I love everything pertaining to the home!
