So I Went With Turquoise

I went to Target last night with the full intention of buying these pillows.

However, when I saw them in person, I didn’t love them. They were okay but not really doing it for me. I’m not sure why. The colors were a little more vibrant in person and they were nice enough. I was excited all day about going there and rushed through the store to find them, only to find myself inexplicably apathetic.  Then I saw these and it was all over.
I wasn’t thinking about this color at all but I love it!  They look great on my still sad looking swing.  I also bought some spray paint so I can freshen things up a bit. In the meantime, my pretty turquoise friends, er pillows, are doing the trick.
I also planted some coleus, vinca vine and a purple thing in my new planters.
They don’t look quite this lush, yet, but they will soon enough, minus the dinosaurs of course.
Baby steps.  Things are perking-up out there, that’s for sure.

  1. I had a very similar experience with a pillow recently. 🙂 Life is funny sometimes.

  2. Those pillows (the first ones) totally matched your design aesthetic but I totally get what you mean about seeing them in person, especially anything fabric related. Those dinosaurs make me chuckle every tome!

  3. Your garden is so lovely Jenny!! I love plants and colorful cushions!!!
    Have a nice week!

  4. I like the ones you chose better that the ones you intented to buy in the beginning. The colors are so pretty, and they look amazing! Your plants are lovely as well 🙂
