Bird is the Word

So I thought having to work Saturday would have at least yielded me some good garage sales, since i am never up in time.  I like my sleep.  Sadly, I only saw one on my way in, and as far as i could tell from my drive by it wasn't worth being a little late for.

Feeling unfulfilled,  i weaved my way home after work via the scenic route, and only found 1, about a block from my house.  It was a very small set up, but i was so in the mood for thrifty shopping that i stopped.  And i'm glad i did!  I saw these bird pillows, marked 4.oo for the set.  I thought, maybe for my MIL who loves bird watching...but their almost icy blueness meant i at least had to try them in my bedroom.  Guess where they're staying. 



Perfect addition to the chaise.


Perfect to gel with the maroon of the chaise and carpet.

 Clearly i'm still having trouble deciding on duvet and wall colors...such is the life of a Libra.  What about you, any surprising good finds lately?  Are you like your astrological sign?

What cute birdie pillows!! I haven't been to a garage sale in ages - probably just as well, I've got my work cut out for me getting through all the stuff I've hoarded over the past few years. Don't really need more!! But then again it's not really about needing stuff....

Great little pillow! I would have grabbed that up too and I actually did find a little cardinal figurine for a Christmas gift for a friend.

Holly @ Roller Coaster Life said...

Aww they do match the chaise perfectly!! I also have not been to a yard sale in forever! I'm not up that early at all.. ever!!

What a great find! I love the pillows. Bird decor has been so popular at our favorite stores, like Anthro & Pottery Barn. I'm so happy for you! Astrological? Yep. I'm a Gemini, sign of the twins. I change decor in the blink of an eye (on a budget of course!)

The burgundy chair looks like my couch! Bad thing is it attracts cat hair and hard to get off.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting... I am now following and look forward to reading more of your stuff.
All the best,
