Yesterday was my Birthday

...and my husband is out-of-town. No one to help with the kids, no one to let me sleep in, no one to treat me to the grand fiesta I so deserve. SO I thought it my duty to throw myself a little retail pity-party. I'm hoping to do some sofa revamping in the near future, so...

I bought these - for the trade price. I feel good about it.I never had my fill of this pattern, so please don't go negative.

...also bought these one-of-a-kinders via this Etsy lady.
As to the first, any suggestions on another pattern/pillow set to go-with the Chiang Mai's?

Happy (belated) birthday to you! I think you need something with tangerine to pick up the flowers. What about a tangerine solid with aqua blue piping?

ps- love your gift for yourself. Makes me wish it was my birthday again :)

Happy belated Allison! You should always give yourself little treats, and pillows seem like a fitting choice (you can hug on them!!). Love the ones you chose.

Keep celebratin'!

LOOOOVE the chiang mai no matter what anyone else says. you should check out one Etsy.com seller who has the most wonderful photos of her pillows and the things she's sold - WoodyLiana on etsy. You may not need any of her pillows but just check out her arrangments, generally good mixes with chiang mai.

Happy belated birthday! If I were in your shoes, I would engage in a little retail therapy, too! How about geometric blue or orange pillows to compliment the Chiang Mai?

Happy Birthday! I think that chiang mai's are the perfect choice for retail therapy. They are fabulous. You will love them.
