~Simple Changes~

Happy weekend my blogging friends!  I made a few more simple changes in the living room that I want to show you. New pillows from Ballards that I bought on sale before Christmas for $14.99 a piece and that even included the pillow insert and a change to my favorite pedestal bowl that I found at a local florist shop over the summer.
 A simple plant and some spanish moss replaced the moss covered balls that I originally had in there, and my new checked pillows in toffee.

 Just a few simple changes to give a new look to the room. Have a super weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

So comfy and inviting...and an incredible deal too. Can't believe the pillow covers included the insert!

Kelly said...

I really like your new pillows! I love that pattern. That was a great price too. The little white urn reminds me of my sisters. I really like how you put a plant and moss in there. Spanish moss was the perfect addition.
