My Latest Buy: A Kilim Cushion


I have a problem. A serious problem. With cushions. I have too many. And, I keep buying them. Ok - any cure? I don't think so. Cushions are the best, most simple and most affordable way of redecorating your home, adding new accents, changing a style. For a very long time I have been looking around for the perfect little kilim cushion for my sofa. And after a long research I found the perfect one. I bought it on Ebay and it arrived today directly from Turkey. It is made of a vintage kilim rug with a plain cotton back. The colours are stunning - I love the combination of a soft mint green and dusky pink tied together with bold black. The pattern is amazing too and the vintage surface shows small imperfections which add character to this cutie. And all this in one cushion. For 20 bucks. This I call a happy Thursday!

  5. YOU NEVER CAN HAVE ENOUGH PILLOW'S! I Love your newest one! Since I'm a happy crafter, I sew my own pillows from vintage clothes. Whether old leather jackets or sweaters, they all end up as a pillow or quilt on my coach!

  8. I totally agree with you! And this is definitely a stylish new pillow! I always say that the boyfriend is going to move out of the apartment if I bring home another pillow!
