Have you wondered what happened with the hand cut Hungarian felt pillows I was agonizing over? It’s not a gripping tale, but I hate to leave you hanging.
Thanks to your awesome help, I made a decision! I decided on four yellow on yellow wool pillows, for a colourful, textural statement in the guest room. Then I decided to get two cream ones for the office. Splurge indeed! Pretty much at the last minute (I needed to allow 6 weeks to order), I went to the shop at 4:00 p.m. one day. The market the shop is in closed at 6:00 p.m. that day, but this vendor was already gone. The sign said the shop was open until 6:00 p.m. but everything was closed. When I had the time again, I went back to the market, to see what other stock colours they had or to see if there was a chance to order, but they were packed up at 3:00 p.m.! At that point, I was too irritated to try again. I really shouldn’t have to work hard to part with my money for frivolous things, right?? Happily, my Mom had decided maybe she went a little pillow crazy and gave me two of her cream ones. So I’m not completely pillow-less, like last time.
If I’m being honest, I’m disappointed I didn’t get a custom set of these amazing pillows, but I’m also relieved my plans were thwarted because six pillows would have been a lot of vroom vroom. I bought some other expensive treats I haven’t even told you about, so I think it worked out for the best.
In any case, the cream pair looks amazing in the office and they don’t compete with the silhouettes, patterned office chair, patterned guest room chair (looming in the distance), and busy expedit hack. The texture of the pillow shows up much more in real life and the colour is actually a much creamier shade than the walls – more like the backgrounds of some of the silhouettes. I’m happy. And so is Hubby. He hates pillows.
P.S. How many photos of these pillows will I make you look at? Just one more.
