New Pillows

I have wanted some pillows for our living room for quite some time now but I haven't been able to find exactly what I want in the budget that I have. Don't get me wrong, I find lovely pillows all the time. Like pillows from Anthropologie, or something from this lovely shop. I just can't afford them. 

You can imagine my surprise when I found these at a thrift store for $1.50 each! The picture doesn't do them justice. They are the prettiest golden color. They are 100% silk and dry clean only. I normally would never buy anything like that but for $3 I didn't mind. I figure I'll take them in ever few months for a nice cleaning.

The only bummer was not having the fills for these beautiful pillow covers. I looked around for a good two weeks and everything I found was at least $10 or more. So I got out my trusty sewing machine and made my own pillow fills out of muslin that I had on hand and stuffed them with polyfill.

I love the pop of texture they add to the room.

A perfect background for the other pillows I will add in the near future.
