A box from Turkey showed up on my doorstep stuffed full of what appeared to be about a gazillion kilim pillow covers.
Somehow I completely blanked on ordering these. Have you ever done that? Been totally blindsided by a mystery box filled with mystery things? It was like a terrifying surprise christmas. Thankfully, with this newfangled thing called email, a quick search revealed that I’d ordered a bunch of pillow covers off the eBay very, very late one night…over a month ago.
Pillow sale + combined shipping discount + ease of paypal + shipping delay + poor memory = kilim pillow cover stockpile.
Oh what’s this? Color in the den?
I do declare!
Cheapskate Tip : Save money by scavenging pillow inserts at the thrift store.
Yup, simple stuff. Instead of buying a bunch of new down inserts – just go buy a bunch of fugly pillows that have great inserts (or even good stuffing for odd sizes) and for about a buck or less each, say hello to your new cheaply stuffed pillows.
Love this neutral desert toned spare pair. They may be living in the living room.
Oh no I didn’t just throw a baby striped pillow into that sofa corner.
Gettin’ crazy up in here.
Recklessly mixing scale and pattern?! Say what!
Oh yeah, all over this sofa.
This one might be my favorite pillow of the bunch. What a sassy little minx.
Well, with a giant pile of pillows still needing to be distributed around the house, here’s to hoping that the vintage kilim pillow thang isn’t totally “over”. Actually…no wait, I really hope it is.
Then I can buy them all up at low low prices and cover myself in a scratchy, hand woven, vegetable-dyed pile of kilim delight.
