I think it’s safe to say I have a real thing for throw pillows in the living room.
(She says with a sheepish grin.)
It started innocently enough – a pillow here, a pillow there.
Until I had a whole collection of throw pillows in the living room.
But when I find really awesome throw pillows it’s just so darn hard to say no.
And truthfully, I’m a bit of a particular pillow addict.
I only buy feather inserts. (I only buy the $7 Ikea versions.)
And I don’t normally spend much more than $20 for a cover.
Sometimes I even make my own.
Or support a bloggy friend or other creative artist.
Come to think of it I believe it’s a good thing, my throw pillow addiction.
How else would throw pillow artists make a living?
