But which one??

Looking for an accent pillow for our bed. I am going for a white-black-grey colour scheme, with blue or pink accents.

Grey will tie-in nicely with the painting above our bed, but pink is feeling more Summer-like to me at the moment.

Hubs is definitely not a big “pink” kinda-guy, so will have to do it in small doses! Hey! Valentine’s Day is approaching…. I see some not-so-subtle hints coming up ;)

I was in Spotlight today, and the have some cool curtain fabric, which would translate very well into one of these cushion covers. It was no more than $4 a metre. I thought long and hard about it and walked away, but I think you really need to see it. I'm going to find an image that depicts what I saw, to email you. I can't decide between any of those cushions you posted - big help eh?

Oh sorry, I can't email you. But the fabric is geometric patterned like what we've seen in a lot of home mags. (just not the fuzzy kind of staggered pattern like the ones you blogged.
There's a mid blue, and a nice green. There was a different one in black and white. Probably not worth rushing down there for, I think they'll keep it at that price to clear it out. So if you happen to be in the Mount, check it out. I was thinking about grabbing some just to staple to canvas for wall art.

They're lovely prints! I don't think it's fair to pick just one. Enjoy the gorgeous day, Kellie xx

Lisa - I was just up the Mount but ran out of time :( Will venture back next week, I can see a canvas-fabric-stretching afternoon coming on!!
Kellie - thankyou :) Hubs took the hint and ordered me a special something for Valentine's Day. Can't wait to share it with you all.

Hi, me again.

Just wondered if I could email you. I can't see any contact on your profile. I have a couple of pictures I'd love you to see, ideas for your girls room. If it's okay, email me (email on blog), if not, I totally understand, and wont be offended.
Oh, hang on, I can try copy and paste in the comments duh!

Nope didn't work. Anyway....Try this link

Look at her custom prints. Great idea for a rainbow room methinks.

About browsers, I have IE and Google Chrome, so I can look at my bookmarks in IE but use Chrome for faster things like blogging.

P.S-: thanks so much for your lovely comments. I really like your idea for the entertainment unit.
