pillow love



So, I am obsessed with pillows lately. Beautiful, gorgeous, colorful, comfy pillows. Ever since we moved (it's already been 2 months!!) I've been having fun trying to decorate and add new things to my home...and I've realised that decorative pillows are the easiest way to brighten up a room, make it feel homey and bring in a little color.



This is a view of my living room...I had the exact same picture wall in my old house and I just wanted to do the same thing here. I like the familiarity of it and why change a good thing, right? Maybe I'll update the photos if I ever get around to it...we'll see! But, see how fun the pillow is??? It just totally makes me happy!

Here's a couple more that I love...the colors and design are just totally inspiring to me. Our upstairs loft is done in browns and this awesome, sea-foamy green color (which is EVERYWHERE right now, p.s....it must be an IN color right now. All I know is I love it!)



And if you're wondering where I've gotten all my pillows, for all you canadians this is the place. I have just have one thing to say...


I. Love. Home Sense. It is seriously a favorite store right now. I love it 'cause it is always getting new stuff in, and good prices, too! Which leads me to the next thing...


I am short one pillow. I know. Gasp. So I have a little challenge/favor to anyone who is reading this!!! If anyone can find me this pillow:

at a Home Sense store, then I'll of course totally re-imburse you for the cost (it's $20), pay shipping and give you some scrapbook stuff in return. Does that sound good? I have a whole pile of stuff still sitting in a box that I need to give away so I'll send you a little package! I've been to all the Home Sense stores around me and can't find anymore...there's gotta be one more of these in Canada, right?? We'll see.



And I just thought I'd share some pictures since I've been so bad at that lately...I've seriously fallen off the picture-taking bandwagon and I need to get back on it! Here's Payton this afternoon:






And then here are 3 perfectly-imperfect photos of Gray and Gabby that were taken in December. These 2 love eachother so much. I feel quite left out sometimes!!






Okay, long post today...my family is sleeping so I've had a little time this afternoon to play. We took the girls swimming and it was so fun...definately something we need to do more of. Have a great weekend!!

Love your living room wall color...would you post the paint color or email me. We're building a new home and I am searching for the perfect color. I'll have a peek at Calgary Home Sense for your pillow.

Love your LR wall. I'm like you, when we moved almost 5 years ago I took pictures of some of my walls cause I liked them so much...and yes why change a good thing.

Love the pillows...they really do add a splash of "happy".

Your girls are simply adorable. Love watching them grow up.

Take care

Great update post!

Hope you find your pillow. I am sorry I cannot be of any help down here in Alabama.

Tee hee hee - your pillow enthusiasm is catchy! I love accent pillows, too - and I can't wait to make my way to Home Sense and do a little pillow gathering of my own. I'll keep my eyes out for your pillow.

Talia said...

Andrea...the tulips are from Superstore...

Starr...I'll have to ask my hubby what the paint color is and I'll let you know...

HI TALIA-
Been a long time lurker, I hate that word though.LOL! I just love all of your fun decorating. I just recently bought a new house and bought this:

for my teenage girls room. I love the chandeliers. They are so cute. I put a bright pink chandelier in their room and painted their walls dark gray. Everything else is done in silver. I would love to see the rest of your house and your scrapbooking room especially. My scrapbook room is green and brown. Sorry for going on and on. Thanks for sharing your pillows fun!
