Koko – Match Co. pillows

I scored an awesome embroidered pillow on serious clearance at Anthropologie earlier this evening. Highly proud of myself, I came home ready to find a picture to share with you of my brilliant find. But then I found these. And now I kind of can’t stop thinking about them. But I still love my Anthropologie pillow. I will take a picture of it tomorrow.

Until then, please enjoy these ridiculously cool (and, thus, quite pricey) rice bag and matchbox pillows from Koko – Match Co., which instantly made me think of Agence Eureka’s Flickr set:

Wordshop Wednesday (on Thursday): Hudson Boston!

Thanks to Holly’s Twitter updates over at the always inspiring Decor8, I’ve been introduced to this little slice of design fabulousness called Hudson, right here in my Boston backyard!

Each of the following images is taken from Hudson’s website, which I strongly encourage you to visit. Like, now.

Pillow talk

You know how, after an undisclosed amount of time, your pillows can kind of start NOT feeling comfortable anymore? Yeah. That’s what’s happening to the pillows gracing my couch, of which there are many. Somehow, NONE seem appropriately cozy. And I certainly can’t afford to buy any new ones (not now, anyway), so… I just thought I’d do a little painless, virtual “window” shopping… via Etsy, of course.

So, if you’d like to join me in my spree, here we go!

1. Vintage grain sack pillows from Leslie Jansen:

2. Monogrammed pillows from White Twig:

3. Because I have recently become a first-time aunt (to twins! a boy & a girl… I’m not at all proud… hee hee), I have become somewhat infatuated with really ridiculously adorable, handmade kiddie stuff. Like these pillows, by Li’l Dumplings:

4. OK… I can’t help it. I think it’s hilarious when bad words are displayed in pretty, elegant ways. Like when I calligraphy “B*te me” on cards. It makes me spectacularly happy. And so do these two-sided pillows by Sew Naughty:

5. OK, back to wholesome… courtesy of these lovely, primitively welcoming pillows by Peace By Piece Designs:

OK, I think that’s sufficient for now.

Happy weekend!
