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.
