Pottery Barn Inspiration, Dollar General Pillows

I have a post today that is a bit of a mixed bag of things I wanted to share with you.
Recently at Pottery Barn I spotted some pillows I thought were very classic in design.


















This pretty pillow below was priced at $49.00




















The next group of PB pillows (below) with the big buttons was $29. per pillow.


The pillows also looked familiar to some I had found at Dollar General and Old Time Pottery, each for $5 and less. I did splurge on the numbered PB pillow, #3, I have three children and had to have it. But...currently it is on clearance at Pottery Barn onlinewebsite! You can save on that one too.
(Click to enlarge pillow to see my price comparisons)



Pillows isn't the only thing I found at Dollar General, I found myself and my son J Smooth some cute "boat shoes". The white mules are mine. Each set $7.00!


















Yesterday I did a post about displays using glass jars, vases and urns.
Dawn of Cottage State of Mind was so sweet and shared with me her glass jar vignette. It's gorgeous! Take a look.....






















She filled her glass vase with sand, shells, some drift wood...and her special touch.....a vintage coastal postcard.
Gorgeous! Dawn, Thank you for sharing your display. It's beautiful!

Hi Leigh! Oh, I love your pillows and especially knowing you got such a bargain! I may have to go to Dollar General and see what I can find. I'm looking for some pillows for my sofa! Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

*smacks forehead* Old Time Pottery!! I've been looking for an accent pillow or two for Oldest Daughter's new bedspread. The World Market (??) had pillows that might work for 20 bucks and up! I'm not paying that for a single pillow! So yes, tomorrow I will be stopping by OTP.

I like your pillows - sooo pretty!

Love it! The Bean and I made yet another trip to OTP today and racked up on 50% off Thanksgiving and Christmas d├ęcor. No wonder she "told on me" the day we went shopping together! It seems like we go there ALL THE TIME and find amazing deals every visit!

Dawn said...

Your pillows look great Leigh, I wish we had stores like that out here. There may be some in the big cities but I never make it there!

Glad you liked my "cookie jar" beach scene. I'm finally figuring out how to decorate around those old, not quite light blue, not quite turquoise tiles!
Hugs,
Dawn

Great finds! Tomorrow is my "pillow day". I am making new pillows to go with the color changes in my living room and family room. Maybe I should go find a dollar general store...

Great finds! Love the pillows!!! Tomorrow is my "pillow day". I will be making new covers for my pillows...to change the room decor and colors of my family room and living room. Since I truly hate to sew (make that CAN'T sew), perhaps I should find a dollar general store...
Hugs,

Oh, one more (little) thing. My blog A Beach Lovers Place is no longer. I replaced it with Daily Vitamin Sea -I'd be thrilled if you changed out the button -thanks so much.
