Pillow Talk

Hello dear friends, hope you all have had a wonderful week. I am in the process of sprucing up my patio. The weather has been over 100 degrees everyday this week, so I have been waiting until the evening to do my decorating. These pillows are my find of the week! They were on sale at Hobby Lobby for half price, and I was able to get all three for what you might pay for just one teeny tiny decorative pillow.

This is a close up of the embellishment in the center of each pillow. I think they have a very Double D Ranchwear feel to them. No comparison in price though! The long rectangular one was only $7!!! That's right folks, you read that correctly.

This is one of the swings on the porch. I have four all together, so I am thinking about doing each one differently but having them complement each other. I just have this black and white toile wrapped around the cushion while I am experimenting. I like to change the fabric up every other year. Heaven forbid that things should get boring! I have never used these colors outdoors, but I'm liking it. A little punch of pink here and there, or even orange when autumn rolls around might be fun too.

Now don't think I'm going to leave these lovely pillows out day and night. If I did that the squirrels that use my backyard like a frat house would have a heyday! Ooh, I just checked the thermometer and it's currently a balmy 95 degrees in the shade. I better get out there and start froufing. Happy decorating to you my dears!
