Pillows + Throws

Did you see the embroidered applique pillows featured today on the pillows + throws website? I’m seeing a lot of eastern influences in home decor lately, especially at urbans and anthropologie. I think these pillows would look stunning displayed on a wooden slat bench near pots of tulips and peruvian lilies – maybe on your patio?

I just love the abra cadabra gift set from Lekker, in mediterranean colors, which was just marked down from $80 to $60 and available now on thier website. Perfect for spring parties with your friends. Serve up fresh veggies, waffle pretzels and assorted yummy dips in style with these porcelin bowls. Add tang to your table!

Boston locals: In addition to online shopping, Lekker has a retail space located in the South End.

Reader Seeking Nest in Maine

Letter from reader in Maine. I know exactly what she is talking about below, but I don’t have a clue where to find this information since I haven’t seen the commercial lately, nor do I recall the product that was being advertised. Anyone know?

I made your blog page my browser startup page. I can’t believe how much stuff you add each and every day. It is sooooo cool! You are one busy chicka! I was wondering if you had noticed a picture that was in a recent tv commercial. I know you don’t watch a lot of tv and it’s only onscreen a minute or so. We have ‘rewind’ on our tv so I keep rewinding it to check it out. It’s a commercial where a mom is sleeping in bed and her kids are sneaking up on her and then she jumps up cause she is feeling fine and surprises them. Cute commercial. But the picture is on the right hand side of the screen on the wall parallel to the bed. It’s a large closup of a nest and in the bottom left hand corner of the nest are blue eggs. I’ve looked and looked and can’t find this picture in stores or online anywhere. I was wondering if maybe you had come across it in your exploring? I NNNNEEEEED this picture and it’s driving me nuts that I can’t find it….it’s become like the search for the holy grail. LOL

Talk to you soon!


Can anyone help Sondi?
