I'm a throw pillow whore and I don't care who knows it. Recently, I saw an embroidered suzani throw pillow that I really wanted, but it cost a million-ga-jillion dollars. Of course, I had to walk away. Then, while browsing Cost Plus World Market, I found some napkins on sale that had a similar pattern and color scheme as the super expensive throw pillow. I bought two of the sale napkins ($1.99 each) to convert into throw pillows! I backed them with material from an old green twill curtain, found two inexpensive down pillow inserts from IKEA and voilà - a perfect pair. What do you think?
...and on a separate note, thank you to Alcira of The Nero Chronicles
for naming me one of her "Stylish Bloggers". Made my day!
