Pillow Talk

I know there’s a lot of ¬†pillow talk going on right now – and why? ¬†Because pillows are the easiest way to update the look of any room or furniture. ¬†Now it’s time for me to join in the conversation – I began my pillow talk this past week. ¬†Spring is coming and I wanted to add a few of them around the house. ¬†After having new pillows on Grace, I realized it’s time to refresh pillows around the house.image

My story began with this gorgeous fringe I found while clearing out a closet. ¬†I actually forgot I had it and when I saw it that’s when it hit me.. Pillow Time!

Can’t let good fringe go to waste.. ¬†So next stop.. The fabric shop. ¬† I’ve been on my animal print kick for a while, and luck be the lady, I found the perfect fabric that satisfied my wild side. ¬† The fabric was $15.00/yard ( I know.. Ouch) but I couldn’t resist. ¬†My savings came in the pillow forms. ¬†Again, I got lucky (on the thrift side) and found feather down pillows at Goodwill for $1.00 each. ¬†I removed the old fabric and created 3 new pillows for less than $20.00 ¬† Here are my new pillows:

Not bad right.. The fringe really gave the pillows a high end designer look. I’m loving my “J” style pillows, and there are ¬†few that I’ve been fiending over that I’d like to share with as well.
