Yes, I did!!! I went into Pottery Barn ! Of Course ... That was a huge mistake.. I always try to stay out of there. Today I was killing time, waiting on the time for my doctor's appointment. I ended up going into Pottery Barn. First thing to catch my eyes !!! These pillows !!
I had to nearly sit down when I seen the price for just the pillow cover... $49.00 - Just the cover.. The pillow insert is another $16.00 for the down pillow form or $39.00 for the Feather pillow form.. Finally Cost - $65.00 to $88.00 a pillow.
You want to know what I did... I left there went to my doctor's appointment. Finished there and went to Joann's Fabric.. They had different textures and sizes of Linen fabric on sale at 50% off. I got a yard of 3 different linen colors and sizes. Price $ 2.99 a yard. Guess what I am going to do? You guessed right!! I am going to find some transfers on the computer and print them on to transfer paper and put those suckers on the linen and make me 3 pillows just like these.... Well not just like these. But they will be almost like. I figured may cost me about 12.00 a pillow with pillow insert. Wish me luck !!!
Oh by the way... Pottery Barn's January Catalog is right along my lines of decorating !!! I love everything in it!! They have a round coffee table that is almost just like the one my mom has had since the sixties... Cost $599.99 for their table... Mom's $0.00 if no one in the family is using it... Now that is another story... lol My family of Aunts pass around furniture like recipes.. If you can't remember where you misplaced that dinette... Try one of the Aunts... or that end table.. call an Aunt. The end table in my sun room was my Aunt Judy's.. It was sitting on her carport.. I have it now... The sewing machine cabinet was Aunt Debbi's.. It ended up at Aunt Judy's and then out onto her carport... I have it now... I just need to go by Aunt Judy's every so often and see what is on her carport. Do a slow Drive By....
I have not done much stitching .. Rather, none at all. Daughter and grands have been here staying all week. Something has died in their wall or floor. They had The exterminator out to check it out.. He said it was not a mouse.. maybe a squirrel, raccoon, or cat . He was not allowed to do anything to find it because he could be libel for any damage.. DUH.... Where is Billy The Exterminator when we need him !!! It is bad smelly down at their house.. Poppa thought he would help by putting some Spearmint Deodorizer underneath the house and along the framing.. Well now it smells highly of Spearmint Rotting Death. lol Well.. no babies of mine are going to stay in that smell. Son in law came in off the train tonight... He cooked some wings in Bar-B-Q sauce and Raeanne says it nows smells more like Rotted Spearmint Bar-B-Q Wings... Hope no one is trying to eat while they are reading this... This has been my week so far. Sorry to type ya'lls ears off. I have been confined to the house till today... One more look at these beautiful Pillows:
