Happy Weekend, Folks. I’m just going to be honest and say that I’ve spent all of my free time this week watching Downton Abbey. I’m hooked and almost done with the first season.

Such  great costumes. Ok. On to the fun stuff.

How quirky is this DIY Hot Air Balloon Lantern? Perfect for the kid’s room or, you know, creative art hipster types.

A glue chart! I can’t be the only one who gets excited about these things. It tells you the appropriate type of glues to use on various surfaces. But when in doubt, Gorilla Glue for all.

These cushions made me swoon.

Maybe it’s influence from the obscene amount of Battlestar Galatica Ryan and I are watching, but I couldn’t stop thinking about how much I want this comet necklace.

How a single layer cake makes everything nicer speaks truths.


celebrate pillows!

I strongly believe there are two types of people in this world: those whose lives would be adversely affected if pillows didn’t exist and those whose lives wouldn’t. If pillows disappeared today, you can bet I’d be in a perpetual state of crankiness. I’m a pro lounger. I like to lay on things, especially pillows, or drape them over me in a “I’m going to hide from my problems” type of way. I like to nap on my couch with a pillow on every side.

My boyfriend is the other type of person. Beware of these people – the pillow haters (and by extension life haters, puppy haters, and cupcake haters). He thinks they’re extraneous fluff in life.

Today is the day to celebrate the pretty pillows in your life, or at least the ones you wish were in your life. Appreciate the things that make your day comfy, relaxing, and soft.

Go team pillows!

My bestie pointed this one out.

It seems like owl pillows are everywhere.

I’m a sucker for anything under the sea.

Coffee is my favorite thing, so it makes sense to have it in pillow form.

This pillow is breathtaking. I love the fabric and the colors are great. Plus, love geography.

More under the sea gems. This one is made with hand felted Australian Merino wool.

Have a tea party on pillows?

How do you like your pillows, er, eggs?

I feel very silly today.

Which type of person are you? A pillow lover or hater?

desiring: hudson linen pillows

Ok. So I’d rather not be known as one of those people who are obsessed with cephalopods. But let’s face it – I am. And it’s time to stop denying it, because I’m dying to get my hands on these pillows from Hudson.

How simple and adorable. It’s also in white.

The Seahorses are also super cute.

There’s also a starfish.

I really could go on and on. All of their pillows are beautiful, as is the rest of their furniture. Here’s one more with some color.

They’re having a sale right now. But that’s probably not going to help much. These beauties are priced at $185. ouch.
