Pillow Mint

I love this shop! It’s called Pillow Mint and it is located in Charlottesville, Virginia. Owner Anita has both a storefront and web shop and she commented earlier here on the bloggy blog that she’s sad to see Domino fold and get this… she was going to be featured in their April issue! With March being the last that isn’t going to happen. Poor Anita. I feel so bad. To ease some of the pain, I clicked over to her shop and found these beauties to share. Let’s give her a little cyber group hug today, shall we? I know decor8 is not Domino, but hey it’s a start since we bloggers tend to share our finds so perhaps she’ll get a little blog lovin’ all over the intertubes today!

Pillows, Hadley Hutton prints and a cozy koko: acrylic throw.

I don’t know if you follow the Making It Lovely blog, but mother-to-be Nicole is decorating her nursery and since she is a graphic designer I think she’d love these serena & lily letter pillows. I immediately thought of her the moment I saw them!

Great Slipper Chairs at Target

Sashay, Tarjay! I feel like I’m talking about Target a lot this week which surprises me because I don’t think I mentioned them as much last year as I have this week. I don’t know, I didn’t find them that exciting in 2008. So far for 2009 things have changed and Target is suddenly back on my radar. I’m on the hunt for budget finds these days for the various assignments I have, the focus currently is on affordable finds. While I wouldn’t outfit my entire home with Target furniture, I like to mix things up from various sources and throw in a little vintage, I could easily see myself grabbing a few affordable pieces like these killer slipper chairs. A very special thanks to reader Kate who commented earlier today on these slipper chairs spotted over at Target (thanks, kate!). My, my, my how nice they are. Perfect for those shopping on a budget but looking for a chair with personality. These armless beauties are great for small spaces. Most shown below are $299 (or less), some have free shipping, and many are also an additional 15% off of that! For those living in tax-free states (like me), you can save even more. For wood and foam alone you’d pay that, forget the upholstery… so this is definitely a good deal for a chair.



Do you like any of these patterns? I feel like I’ve seen some of these prints before, a few look very John Robshaw or even Thomaspaul. What do you think? Do you own one? Do you have a photo of it in your space? I’ve never shopped Target for slipper chairs so by all means, school me.

Needlepoint at Jonathan Adler

I’m really liking the new collection of needlepoint pillows over at Jonathan Adler today… Very perky and happy just like the man himself.

I vote for the belt pillow as my fave but at $165 a pop I may need a few coupons or a sale to motivate me on this one. Perhaps I’m just being cheap.

What do you think about spending $165 on a pillow anyway?
