Bonjour Mon Coussin’s awesome pillows

For this installment of French Friday Monday, it is my distinct pleasure to present you with some of my most prized pillows from the fabulous online store, Bonjour Mon Coussin. They involve tantalizing type, delicious design, and  clever colors. But enough alliteration. On to the images. Oh wait, did I mention that some of the pillows are scented? True story. The scented ones are marked with “PARFUM” like the burlap one below, which smells like coffee!

My new Anthropologie pillow

As promised, some pictures of the embroidered Anthropologie pillow that I purchased last night on massive clearance. The plaid backside ain’t no accident.

Anthropologie generally has a multi-faceted effect on me. Initially, I feel instantly comforted by the aesthetic beauty of all that surrounds me. But then, inevitably, I actually start to become a little tweaked out by just how much every single item – down to an individual plaid doorknob – totally seems like it was MADE FOR ME. And only me. Though, intellectually, I realize that there a bajillion other people who feel exactly the same way. Which weirds me out even more, because I consider myself a stand-alone kind of girl. So then the Twilight Zone music starts to play and I find my temperature rising and my pace quickening and I just need to purchase something and get the eff outta there.

And so I did.

With this awesome pillow.

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 Tuesday): Jamaica Makes…

Have you guys all seen Jamaica? I’m not talking about the island, though I hear that’s lovely, too. No no, I’m talking about Ms. Jamaica of the wonderfully awesome blog Jamaica Makes (crafts when she should be making dinner)! She and her blog make me smile for all sorts of reasons. For instance, yesterday she posted the following:

If that thank-you card doesn’t qualify as “rad,” I don’t know what does. Actually, wait, yes I do: all the old-school paper and fabric goodies in Jamaica’s Etsy shop and on her blog qualify as majorly rad. Here, check them out (be prepared to swoon):

French Friday: Bord de Scène

Honestly, I’m not even sure how I came across Bord de Scène. It was one of those mysterious blog-links-to-blog-links-to-blog-ad infinitum types of experiences. But the important thing is that I found it. And it rules. And I bet you’ll think it rules, too. Here’s why…
