I haven’t spent much time at home this week, but ironically enough, a lot of it has been spent getting things done for the house.

For example, I sped over to World Market during my lunch break to do a little light shopping. Almost immediately, I spotted a wall of colorful pillows.

The velvety ones are currently on clearance at 50% off. They are only five bucks each, a standard 18in. x 18in. size, and with zippered covers… meaning I have the freedom to remove them, create my own (say, with beautiful printed napkins), and still come out at steep discount from normal designer or custom pillows.

I filled my cart with ’em and grabbed two more that weren’t on sale. When I got home last night, I tried them out as-is with another I picked up on sale from Target (the yellow one in the pic below).

It may not be a color combo that will last forever in this room, but it’s a very cheerful greeting when I come through the front door (the couch faces the front windows). What sort of things have you been picking up for the house lately?

P.S. Even though I took home plenty (several more for the upstairs bedrooms), there are more still at the store, so you can get in on the deal too.

  1. The pillows just make the whole place happier and more colorful, too. I think I'll get a few of them this weekend to put in my living room window seat. :) Keep the good stuff coming!

  2. Yay! I'm super excited to hear this! Now i'm going to have to go to my local world market and hope that they have some on sale!
