I find myself looking forward to Friday's in "Blogland" because it's a chance for me to see what is inspiring everyone. Melissa, over at The Inspired Room, is always encouraging us to capture the things that inspire our lives.

Today, I'm inspired by pillows!

I got rid of all the pillows that came with our sofas about 6 months ago before I ever replaced any of them.

Sometimes for me, I have to get rid of the old before I can imagine the new.

When you are looking at bare sofas, it kind of forces you to think about what you really want. We have a family room and a sitting room, so I needed enough pillows for four sofas and a couple of chairs.
I found two solid pillows with buttons from TJ MAXX that look very similar to the ones above. Don't you love when you find something there for a fraction of the price? I do!!
I'm okay with sitting with empty spaces for awhile if it means that I can eventually get what I really want.
Pottery Barn has some amazing patterned pillows. And, since I was pretty determined about the look that I wanted, I ended up buying four of the same spectacular kind straight from our Pottery Barn in Winter Park...one for each of the four sofas in our two rooms. I chose to buy only the pillow covers and then used some pillow forms that I had already on hand. It was more affordable that way!
It's been 6 months, and I have to say that I'm ready to have my "pillow project" crossed off the to do list! Recently, I've found some amazing Etsy shops that offer beautifully handmade pillows. I'm loving all things "ruffles" so I'm pretty certain that a couple of those ruffled beauties are going to find a home on some of my furniture! When you get a chance, check out the Etsy shops that I've featured today and by all means, head on over to The Inspired Room to check out all the inspiring things out in bloggy world today.
