Budget Decorating


I'm a budget decorator
~ by choice ~
 an eclectic mix
of tapestry
glass
stoneware
a mix of natural
with faux 
an honest expression
of me!

I found these little pillows at the Good Will store
knowing I could recover them
and then like magic I found three empty pillow cases
like it was meant to be
and new pillows are created
with a bit of hand stitching
and WOW they're beautiful
and they're reversible!!!
along with past pillow purchases at the same store
I've spent a total of $8.00 on eight pillows! 
Gotta love a deal like that!

What is it with you girls and pillows?? They are everywhere, and like you they did not cost an arm and a leg (I don't think) but we did not cover them or re cover them but they did come froma thrift shop.
My sister Kat, loved pillows. She preferred the ones with zippers to remove and wash. She bought one for 25 cents, got home and unzipped it and found a $100 bill.

She split it with the lady who was shopping with her.

That is a beautiful setting though the way you have it laid out!!

Love from Down in Ann ARbor.

Cher, I don't think I've ever met anyone more imaginative and creative than you and your sisters. Well...there may be one exception to that - Ha ☻ Seriously - if more of our young people could have that ability to be pleased when things cost less - methinks they would not be so sorely stressed with debt. c'est un coup d'excellence! Y, non! Je ne parles pas le langue de Francais. ☺

Yes that is a deal and so pretty too. John and I have our favorite thrift store in San Antonio where we get an extra discount on Monday or Wednesday for being a senior citizen. Thanks for visiting my blog and I have followed you.
