Cheap Therapy: Chevron Pillow
Confession. I talk kinda funny. I have a few words that confuse people as to what I’m talking about. Like instead of “about” I say “a boat.” I always have. Anyway, recently my girls pointed out to me that I say pillow wrong. I say “pello.” I didn’t know I was saying it wrong all these years. I don’t know if my parents didn’t correct me or if I have some crazy unknown accent, but I just say things funny. Now you know.
So, in addition to talking funny, I’m kind of a pello, I mean, PILLOW, addict. I would buy tons of them if I was wealthy. And I would sew tons of them if I wasn’t always too busy to sew. But every now and then, I just have to have a new pillow.
The other day I ran across that cute chevron pillow cover, above, on etsy. She is not a sponsor, this was just a random discovery. You can find her work via Castle Creek Designs Facebook page here. The pillow is actually a gorgeous blue, not black as it appears in the dismal lighting of January. It looks fabulous with my dining room curtains. So naturally, I had to have it. Everyone has a chevron something right now so I guess for $12 (the pillow cover was on sale!) I will too. A little trendy is fun.
I love pillows.
I also remember buying a pillow in May, in anticipation and HOPE of sunny summer days. Apparently I think pillows will bring more sun in my life, and they do make me happy. I suppose it is cheap therapy — no harm done, right?
And thanks to having white slipcovers, I can pretty much buy any new pillow I fall in love, with because they almost always look great on white. I like options. I like rotating pillows on a whim with the seasons, the weather, and the trends. I always have big stacks of pillows in the corner of my bedroom, just waiting for a new whim when I feel like switching pillows.
So, are you a pillow addict? And, confess: do you talk funny?
