It’s a special weekend post! Can I just tell you how crazy the next week is going to be? I am trying to wrap up a bunch of different projects for another Joss & Main event. One thing I love about the curated events are the lifestyle photos that go along with the sales for inspiration. I would like to include a few new photos of my house for the event so work, work, work it is. I have other blog related deadlines to meet before my sister’s wedding next weekend. My sister is getting married! The wedding is out of state and every person in my family of five is involved in the ceremony. I’m trying to round up quick, inexpensive outfits for everybody and then there’s the packing. Oh, the packing. But I’m excited to share snippets of the wedding with you along the way. It’s going to be a fun wedding! I think we have dentist appointments thrown in there somewhere and the boys really, really, really need haircuts before the wedding. Not sure how I’m going to get it all done but it’s a good busy. I like feeling productive.
Anyhow, today I thought I’d give you a heads up on a pillow sale that Crate & Barrel is offering right now. All pillows and throws are 20% off with free shipping. I’m always getting questions about pillows. How to mix-n-match them, where to buy them, where to find inexpensive down inserts, etc. I’ve bought a few pillows from Crate & Barrel recently. They are super stylish, reasonably priced and INCLUDE INSERTS. Yes, each pillow comes with a down alternative insert at no added cost. I’ve rounded up five Crate & Barrel pillows that I’m crushing on right now.
I think each of these pillows could hold their own but I also love the idea of using them all together on one sofa. Such a great mix! If you’re in the market for a sofa for your pillows then check out the sofa + sectional + sleeper sale too. Lots of good stuff going on over there.
And now I think you deserve a teasing peek at the painted brick fireplace. This image was taken after the first coat of primer + paint under not that great of lighting.
I have been painting. all. day. I think I will fall asleep holding a paint brush tonight. HH was skeptical but after the second coat he suddenly proclaimed, “I like it!” It’s definitely going to take some getting used to after seeing the red brick for so long but I am loving how much brighter and bigger our family room feels already.
