Pillows, Pillows & More Pillows

I'm in love with PILLOWS right now! Maybe it's because it's spring & I'm nesting {literally} or maybe it's because after doing the bathroom, I'm obsessed with finishing my bedroom make-over or maybe it's simply because I've been going to some of the most posh, chic interior design shops in LA...but right now, all I can think about is PILLOWS!

Now, I have a couple of these from Pottery Barn & adore them in my living room.

And this one from Pottery Barn is a 'Must Have' on my to-get list! {but they've been sold out of these the last few times I've gone, I hope beyond hope I might still get a hold of one}

This is Rachell Ashwell's favorite design at Shabby Chic Couture, the Union Jack pillow & I must admit to you, they are fabulous!

And BURLAP...what about BURLAP! The texture & neutral color with the wonderful graphics & text on them...I LOVE these pillows from Mothology. {& that messenger bag is toooo cute}

And here's a few of my favorites from etsy. I adore these pillows on the settee made by Jolie Marche, I could decorate my entire bed with these.

Petit Coterie has some gorgeous french inspired pillows too, I just love the touch of blue down the center of this one & since it's 'Good To Be Queen', the crown does seem fitting! So friends, if you have a FAVORITE pillow or a Great line that I should check out, please share with me cuz as you can see, I am still on the hunt for the PERFECT PILLOW!!!


Disclaimer: Yes, I know there are a lot more important issues to be concerned about in the world then pillows, but, I DO Love them so...

Sneek Peek at Give-Away Goodies

Look, there's a gift bag in that planter & it looks like it came from Rachel Ashwell's shop 'Shabby Chic Couture'! I wonder what's in it, do you think anybodies looking? I feel a little naughty, but I just can't help myself...I have to know what's inside!

Oh, it smells sooooo good & I think I see some bling...what could it be? I know what it is, it's your 1st Sneek Peek at vintagesusie's 100 Friends Give-Away from one of the coolest shops in Santa Monica. Only the best for my friends!!! Inside we find a delicious vanilla RA candle & a pair of her antique gold, glass votive holders trimmed with vintage rhinestones, they're gorgeous!

My visit to this chic little shop was absolutely soooo fun. To my surprise & joy, Pom Pom's Santa Monica shop was only 2 doors down so I got a 2 for the price of one experience. This is the spring, summer color board at Shabby Chic, the florals were luscious, mixed with layers of linen & burlap texture.

Rachel's cotton's are the yummiest, you can't help but want to climb into her bed's with their huge fluffy down comforter's covered in pure white linens, to die for!
I adored her idea of taking petticoats & making hanging lamp shades out of them, they looked wonderful hanging from their high ceilings.
And I had to get myself something, right!!! I choose this simple cotton tote with her initial & a crown on the front & a sweet soft pink bow tied on to one of the handles, it's a good thing!

Can you tell I'm totally bag obsessed right now, I can't get enough of them. This is my bag I got a couple weeks ago at Pom Pom. Don't you love the little french number on it? It's made out of a softer burlap & it's really big...perfect for the swap meet or farmers market or just for everyday when you carry as much junk around as I do. Well friends, I hope you had fun on our Santa Monica shopping spree! We all got some good stuff & hey, don't forget to tell your friends to come by & enter my Give-Away to have a chance at these great little gifts.
