Simple Pleasure: Pillows

Today's simple pleasure is pillows.

Imagine life without them. How would it be to slip beneath the bed covers and have to lay one's head directly on a hard mattress?

On a living room couch, think what it'd be like to lay back with a good book or to watch a favorite tv show without benefit of resting your head against a soft, comfy pillow.

The more pillows the better. Different fabrics, designs, textures, and colors make pillows fun to buy.

Piled high on a bed, they make a statement.

In the living room, lots of pillows can change the look of the entire room.

On holidays, themed pillows can add to the festive decor.

For me, pillows make a really great simple pleasure.

Another simple pleasure that we take for granted at times. I certainly learned to value pillows not too long ago when I strained my neck after using a new one which didn't have enough support. I was in so much pain and so appreciative of the right one. I love decorative ones too.

Thanks for sharing.
Much love!

What beautiful pillows you have! I love looking at them - but have trouble finding just the right one! But I agree, what would we do without them.

A post after my own heart. I adore pillows and, in fact, am almost done making one... my first.

What a cute Easter pillow. I have pillows everywhere. Freaks some people out when they visit as they just don't seem to know what to do with them when they take a seat. :/ Have a beautiful day. Tammy

I agree, Susan!
Pillows are wonderful in any room :-)
I can't seem to convince my hubby of that for some reason lol!
You have some very beautiful cushions, indeed!

Love all your pillows. I couldn't be comfortable without mine. Either could my dog.


As I always say "you can never have too many cushions(and throws, candles, shoes, etc. etc.!) I love your cushions! xx

Very, very nice :)

Pillows are the most important accessories in a room. I like the flower tapestry one you shared.
