SIMPLY PILLOWS





Both my husband and I are on a diet.  I could say we are watching what we eat but why sugar coat it.  I blame my weight gain on this.

Our friends who came to the beach with us over New Years brought two large bags.....and well any one who knows me can tell you that I love popcorn....hard.  And when you add in caramel popcorn.....there is no stopping me.  I am not sure they will be invited back.....just saying.

But back to the weight loss.  Last spring I lost 10 pounds and I was pretty cocky.  I bought all new jeans and almost.....almost threw away all my old ones.  Whew.....glad I didn't follow through with that right!  Sometimes my age and experience comes in handy:)

Of course my husband has lost twice the weight as I have and if he goes in there to weight himself one more time...... comes running out with his hands in the air declaring his loss [like he just discovered the cure for cancer] you might hear about his beating on the 11:00 news.

I'm not playing.

Today for your viewing pleasure I have rounded up all my pillow pictures from the mart.  Feast on  these combinations!

The first group is from Ryan Studio



















And when I asked them what their most popular pillow was I was shocked to learn it was this one.....
The one in the middle!  "Hands down" she said.

And of course my friend Sudi had a really good show!









She said the same thing.....the soft blues are always her biggest sellers!  I like to call it "bedroom blue"....cause everybody wants that color!

Alrighty then.....gotta get to work.

Tick tock tick tock......deadlines!

Sherry these are all so delicious. I can't even stand it. I need to up my pillow game in 2016 and wish I had a room in my house filled with all of these so I could change up the house on a whim!!!! Wouldn't that be dreamy?!! We are trying to get back into shape and eat healthier too and have the same situation happening - my husband is down 10 lbs. already. Such a show off!

LOL. Same thing happens when my husband and I diet. In a couple weeks, he's hit his goal and I'm still struggling over the first 10 pounds. Gorgeous pillows, too--especially the chinoiserie ones and the soutache. Go figure on the most popular one. A little bland for my tastes...

I am married to the same kind of "I lost 50 lbs" showoff. I lost 20 last Fall and gained back 7 in a 5 week, holiday eating binge. Last night he told me I need Spanx and pulled up the website. He is still alive but only because I made him eat some cookies. Ha!

My husband has lost twice as much as I have too... it's not like he weighs twice as much as I do...but he NEVER cared about calories before and now he is looking up from his Ipad saying things like "a radish only has one calorie." I love caramel corn too but I blame my husband for all the huge meals = tight jeans. So his new enlightenment is a good thing!

I am pinning a bunch to my "pillows" board.....THANKS.

I am NOT kidding you - as I was reading through blogs, including yours, I was eating Garrett's popcorn! Seriously! My husband just went to Chicago on business and he always brings me some back - Chicago is my hometown and it's a good thing it's the only place you can get Garrett's!!! But eating it brings back all sorts of memories of being a young professional and making my way up to N. Michigan Avenue and buying a little bag of popcorn and walking around Crate & Barrel and dreaming of how I would furnish our first little newlywed apartment!

Love the pillows too - didn't make Atlanta this year - maybe next!

So many beautiful pillows and of course, you're the pillow authority in my book!! Now on to the weight gain-oh, how I feel your pain and why, why, why is it so easy for the men....

Hey Sherry, I love popcorn and I can’t even stand it. HAHAHA. By the way, I like the pillow cases combination and color. The most pillow for me is the 6th combination. Thank you for sharing!

Amazing pillows!! Just "pinned" a couple of your pics that were love at first sight!! Pillows are too addicting. It's their fault not ours!

Jennifer Schoenberger said...

That is sooooo interesting about the popular pick!!! Picked my sweet dawgs up today (as you know ;-)) and they are looking goooood. yipee xoxoxo

Cindy Hattersley said...

Very interesting the top choice I agree! Wow you do find the gorgeous pillows...you are the pillow queen!!

My heart is beating fast! Pillows are my weakness, along with lamps, and mirrors. Oh, and rugs.

Pillow porn- my favorite! So that whole husband's loosing weight thing - that's going on here too. Mine too comes running in waving his arms like the holy ghost hit him saying "I'm now at my high school weight" and I'm all "WTH" I still have dough belly spilling over my new corduroy pants. not fair!
