I’ve seen lots of beautiful designer pillows on the net that I would love — lots of gorgeous colours & patterns that cost lots of bucks. Usually I pay $5-10 for decorative pillows, but . . .
While on my way to my usual go-to store for quality linens at discount prices [Quilts, etc.], I noticed a new store — ooh, a Bombay has opened up & wow, they’re celebrating with 40% off practically everything. Of course, my bank balance was nowhere near surviving a shopping spree of everything I loved, but maybe a little treat, . . . for me.
My original goal was a duvet cover so I went next door & found the only Queen size on sale for $25. Although originally looking for blue, it seemed like fate that it was a lovely deep red — a perfect match to those wonderful butterfly pillows next door.
I debated a little–a very little–then, yes, even with 40% off $39, I paid almost as much for ONE pillow [$23.40] as I did for the duvet cover — almost $47 for the pair!
I LOVE ‘em! Along with a new $10 mohair throw, I not only refreshed my bed but also brought in some great designer style — all for less than $100 [including those damn taxes].
While shopping, I had picked up a few fresh flowers [no, I'm not willing to cut my blooming tulips outside!] — $6.97 got me enough for both turquoise vases.
Gee, what a novel idea — putting matching vases in the same room!
I’d been eyeing some little bird cages online for $9.99 & then saw these at Michaels — my kind of bargain at $2.99. That’s a big yahoo for shopping local.
Although I was looking for turquoise or blue butterflies, these feathery yellow ones were on sale at $2.99 [for 3] & actually look perfect on the yellow cages.
Of course, as soon as I got home, I kicked myself for not picking up more of these little bird cage beauties for other decorative vignettes — they add wonderful colour & texture with a lovely airyness.
And at night, the tea lights add a romantic glow to the room:
My bedroom has always been an escape haven for me. I usually try to keep it peaceful but I’ve never had one so pretty — how delightfully wonderful.
