Memo, Zebra & Scrolls

Hey guys! I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend! I finished a project and found some new goodies of course! I am taking a break from carpet cleaning our couch to show them to you. If you remember from my previous post here about how I made a jewelry hanger, well, I decided to make a memo board with some fabric and ribbon I have had for a long time. I don't remember what I was going to do with it, but, I finally found a use for it. In the new house I have a vanity, I plan on hanging the jewelry hanger and this memo board in there.


 I went to my favorite store lately (Ross) and I found some new pillows, below I found the zebra one in the middle. It is a feather down pillow, I got it for 9.99. I plan on replacing the other inserts of the pillows with down ones. I love the way they look, they are just so fluffy! 


Here's a close up.


I have been looking for some pillows for our main living room to go with the big cafe picture I have, it has alot of greens in it, so I thought these pillows worked out perefectly. The two scroll ones were 12.99 and the zebra print one in middle was on sale for 8.99, they are feather down too. Love them! Nothing is worse than having droopy flat pillows on your couch..


These green ones are little darker in person, they are pretty sage green.


 Here's a close up of the zebra one.


Now, I am on the lookout for some fabric to add to some brown curtains that I have to tie in with these pillows and the art work. Well, that's it for today guys! You still have time to enter my giveway here it ends tomorrow night. I will draw the winner Tuesday. Have a great day!


I will be joining Debbie's Newbie Party

Love the pretty squishy down-filled cushions you found. I agree that the down really makes a difference to the look and feel of the cushions (not that most of mine are down-filled though).

Love the memo board and pillows. It sounds like you have great plans for your room.

LOVE your pillows!! I am pretty crazy about Ross too. My girls refuse to go in with me because I spend so much time looking at everything. But you can find really great bargains there!! I love your memo board. I was thinking about trying to make something like that to hang my necklaces on.
This is my first visit to your blog and I love it!!

You did a great job on the memo board. It turned out quite nice.
Loving your pillows, too. I prefer down pillows. When they get flat, just pick them up and give a good shake..they will look good as new again!
have a happy day~ L

Hi Allyson, I know what you mean about down pillows- they fluff up beautifully! I love your choice of new pillows. The zebra print and scroll print look so good together!

Love your pillows, especially the soft green with the scrolled design on them, that's my kind of look! I wish I had a Ross near to me! Although that might not be a good thing! LOL.. not for my wallet anyway!
