I know that title really makes no sense, but here is the story...I mentioned last week that my husband was out of town and when he is gone, I go home project crazy. I decided it was time that we finish our master bedroom. I have been through a whole army of throw pillows, but none of the combinations I have come up with over the years have been right. I found an old magazine article I had ripped out describing batik fabrics. I knew Etsy wouldn't let me down, so I typed in 'batik fabric pillow' just to see what would pop up and saw this:
I fell in love with the photo...not just the pillow, but the whole look. Then I found this one:
and I really fell in love. I just love that pillow. I mean I LOVE that pillow. I can't explain it...kind of how I can't explain how I love my husband. I just do. It is so beautiful, so different from other things out there...I am in love with it. For real. So after coming back to that photo easily 400 times, I took a break and went through some of my favorite blogs. I was reading a post (can't remember which one) on The Decorista and the very first comment was from SisterBatik. Sign #1 I need that pillow. A few minutes later over at Look Linger Love, I did a search for pillows because I remember I had fallen in love with one of hers and just wanted to check out some of her color schemes for inspiration and found this post! Somehow I missed it when posted back in January...Sign #2.
Sign#3...who really needs more than two signs, right? I decided to sleep on it and then obsessed a little more the next morning. Then I pulled the trigger and ordered it.
As you may know now, when I like something, I obsess about it for a while. After I made the purchase, I went to their blog and looked through it forever...completely enthralled by the colors of the photos...kind of like a child. :) The photos of their studio, loaded with all of their beautiful fabric just made me so happy:
I can't wait to get moving on the bedroom re-do! For now, here is how I am feeling:
~Those window panels have already been purchased...just waiting for them to arrive.
~That fantastic Michelle Armas painting NEEDS to be in my bedroom. My husband says he reads my blog. We shall see. Honey, I want it!! Mother's Day will be here soon! :)
~That pillow!!...my soon-to-be-pillow...I hope it arrives soon! :)
