Salutations! I’m blogging in today under gray skies with a chance of rain in our local forecast for the next six days. It seems our April showers are trickling into May. During long spells of rain like this, I like to line up a day or two of thrift store shopping and sometimes tackle a project on my to-do list. It depends on how motivated I’m feeling.
I found a pair of Simply Shabby Chic pink and taupe floral shams at our local thrift store this past Thursday. Jeez, it was raining then too. Pink has been on my mind lately. I’m seeing so many gorgeous pink inspirations on Instagram and Pinterest and I thought I’d give it a go here. Thrift store finds are one of my favorite ways to try out something new without spending a fortune or dealing with the hassle of making returns. I picked these shams up for 99 cents—cha-ching.
I wasn’t really sure how to use the pretty floral shams in our living room after trying a couple different ways with no success. The taupe color wasn’t pleasing to me on the sofa or on the sun porch which is where I was initially thinking they would go. So I plopped one on the wicker chair and the other on the coffee table bench for a foot rest. Honey is always stealing a pillow from the sofa and popping on it the bench so this might actually work out for now. Eventually I’d like to get my grandpa Buck’s old chair a slipcover for this corner here. And a soft pink floral might be nice.
So it’s a touch pink. Winka-d-wink.
