What makes throw pillows so damned expensive? I mean, really - what? I think spending 30 dollars on a faux fur coyote throw pillow from Restoration Hardware is actually sort of reasonable, as that works out to not much more than buying the supplies. And it's so fluffy:
|Koko Pillow - 128 DOLLARS|
|UO's Gingham Ruffle Pillow|
|UO's Grey Wool Vines Pillow|
|Creole Pillow from Target|
Well, as we know, corporations have nothing on the creativity of the individual, and if I thought that looking for inspiration from companies was tough - what artist-crafters had made was much more overwhelming. I was truly moved by projects from the subtle to the sublime. The feminine trends of ruffles and flowers were in abundance! Like I said earlier, I get easily overwhelmed. I know that my apartment will never look like a set from an Anthropologie catalog, but it doesn't stop me from striving, and every blog seems to have amazing ideas. So it is difficult to focus! Look at me, in one paragraph I've gone from pillows to once again contemplating how to be happy with my shelving. That means right after I submit this, once again I'm pulling everything down from the darn things. *sigh*
Oh right, pillows!
I have SO MANY pillow projects bookmarked. It's ridiculous. I seriously do not know what to do. I'd love to hear any pillows you have done/bought lately that you have LOVED. I need to reduce my options, as it were, and get some advice, already.
OK, time to hit the shelf. Any advice on how to spruce up shelves?
