pillow talk

Yes, this is a post about throw pillows.

Is what this blog has come to?  How did it all fall apart?
Whatever, life can't all be bitching and gratuitous male models, can it?

Anyway, as you can probably see, I have an addiction to cheap throw pillows from Target.
Is there help for this? Somehow they help me cope.

Being creative poor, however, whenever I see something there that strikes my fancy, I have to delay my gratification for a few months.
Almost inevitably, (but not always) a set of two find their way on the dusty jumbled end caps for me to find.

I imagine this is exactly how a heroin addict who's just scored a hit feels. 

After my most recent purchase, (Cher), I noticed something like a theme.
Each one was rather like a different now I've named them.

Oh my god, is this what I've become???  The man who names his pillows as if they're pets.....after divas!
Kill me now.

At least, I now have the bugle beaded pillow to die upon.

I always say "Throw pillows are the best medicine." Carry on.

It's only when you start decorating with antimacassars that we'll be forced to call an intervention.

PPP...Pillow Purchasing Problem. It's more interesting than a gluten allergy.

With those fine finishes those pillows (cushions in the UK) look like they might be as difficult to keep in top form as the divas for whom they're named!

A more fab collection of pillows can not be found.
