A Touch Of Blue...

As I mentioned earlier, I was on a quest to add some touches of blue to the living room. I found everything I wanted and was able to get it all without ever leaving the house and I didn't shop online. How did I do it, you ask? I used my personal shopper...aka my hubby. ;)

He was doing some shopping the other day and as soon as he left, I started googling pillow covers and decorative plates and before he knew it, I was texting him pics and item numbers of things to pick up for me. Lol!

It's a good thing he loves to shop. :) 

I had him pick up these plates for the mantel at Pier 1 and four blue and white pillow covers at Hobby Lobby. I even texted him my Hobby Lobby coupon. He had to go to two stores to get all four pillow covers, which was kind of a good thing because then he got to use a coupon on two of them.



These pillow covers were only $6.99 before the coupon, (and only $4.19 after the coupon) and they have zippers. 





The back is a plain cream color. 



I love these pops of blue!





Here's a close up of the plates...


blue and white plates
They were on clearance at Pier 1 for only $4.98!

I purchased this pretty vase years ago at The Bombay Co. I loved that store and have many furniture pieces from them as well.



Ten points to the person who can spy Holly in the pic below. ;)



I'm so happy with my finds!



 Having a neutral background sure makes it easy (and fun) to change up my decor with just a few pieces. 

P.S. If you couldn't find her, Holly is sleeping on the back of the sofa in the pic. It's her happy place. :)

  6. Wow your hubby is a keeper. That is pretty wonderful of him to go to four Hobby Lobby's to get your pillows. Awesome. Your blue additions are gorgeous. Holly is exhausted after all that shopping your hubby did for you lol! Have a great new week ahead.

  8. I love your new pillows and plates! You are lucky to have a husband that will go shopping for home accessories for you. My husband would not do that, I'm sure! He would say, you want me to do what? Ha! Your pillows are beautiful. They look expensive. I can't believe how little you paid for them. I love the blue and white mixed with your neutrals. It's just enough color.

  9. I love the perfect touches of blue, Lisa. It's so cool that your hubby did the shopping---no shipping costs! Pier 1 is having huge sales now, I guess to start making room for their big spring/summer collection. I'd love to go but it's freezing here! Love the plates, I didn't know HL had pillow covers. By the fabric? Love that Holly!

    Happy New Week!

  10. It took me a while to find Holly but I found her lol!! She sure knows a thing or two about relaxing!

    I cannot get over how gorgeous those pillow covers are! The pops of blue are perfect for your space and I'm loving the idea of a neutral backdrop to change things up :)

    The Bombay company was one of my favorite stores too; it's where we started getting our decor items when we first got married. Too bad they're not around anymore :(

    Happy rest of the week to you my friend!

  12. I saw Holly immediately! :) Think I've seen her do that before. I had one dog and my daughter has had 2 that loved to sleep like that. They seemed to love high places. Love, love your blue!! I'm shocked that your husband did the shopping ~ most men would not. Great job!! I loved Bombay too ~ always found some amazing things and not expensive.

  14. Where are the pillow covers in Hobby Lobby?

  15. I really like your touches of blue, but I'm totally amazed that your hubby went shopping for home decor....keep him and pamper him! It's funny when you mention in a previous post that you were thinking of adding some blue, because I had been thinking the same thing. When I started going through my pillow covers, I found two that were predominantly orange but had some navy blue diamond shapes, too. I still want my turquoise, but I know I've seen pillow forms or fabric that combines turquoise and navy. BTW, I have those same HobLob forms, but mine are turquoise...I actually dressed them up with some Christmas ribbon and used them in my holiday decor. When I squinted, the design could pass for snowflakes....well, that was in my chemo-infused brain anyway!

    I've been meaning to ask if you follow Cassie at http://www.hisugarplumsblog.com? She is just adorable, does a lot of fashion stuff, and this girl is not afraid of using color! You have to check out her living room! She has really opened my eyes to using colors and color-combos that I would never have thought to try. She and her hubby just finished a kitchen remodel, and the tile backsplash blew me away and then I saw it used on a recent episode of Fixer Upper. Anyway, if you don't already follow her, you should at least take a look. Cassie really has a handle on making life fun!

    What kind of weather are you having? We've been in the 60's & 70's here, but our son and family are in the D.C. area under blizzard conditions! Hope you have a great weekend!

    Warm hugs,
    Carol
