Cushions and things...

Cushions and instagram. And I'm very pleased with both.

I finally caved in last week and uploaded the Instagram App.  It was 9pm so my first few pictures were taken in our living room.  When I gushed to my other half about the newfound joys of yet another social media app he said in a rather withering tone, "They're cushions, Ann." I fear instagram, like blogging, may pass him by.

There are plenty of other instagrammers taking pictures of their pillows and dinners and dresses and doors and I'm finding it strangely addictive. I also like the camera tools - I've already really over used the blurr button.

I have finally given in to my absolute love of blue and white. I have two new brown leather couches and a much loved but very heavy dark wooden coffee table made from factory floorboards. They will be fine one day in a fresh white room with lots of windows. In a rather badly lit living room painted rental cream it's all a little dark - the blue and white seems to lift it all a little.

I found these cushion covers on Etsy. Have you ever tried to remember where on earth you saw that Very Useful Something or Other on Etsy? Pinterest is the answer.  I have found and pinned a houseful of cushion covers for that freshly painted light white home. Now we just need to buy it.

By the way, the husband just passed the computer as I write this muttering "Cushions... again."
Thank god for the blog.


  1. Ann I think you have much chutzpah even mentioning Instagram to Mr. VillaLife. I made the huge mistake of trying to explain Crack Cocaine Pinterest to MOTH & it ended in tears, mine not his! 2 hours later I was reaching for the Vodka bottle & the conversation went around in so many useless circles I was dizzy.

  2. That's funny, men just don't get it. Thank goodness we all do. My man thinks I'm crazy for being so obsessed by blogging and Instagram but doesn't mind looking at a few pics of labradoodles etc that I shove in his face. No doubt it will wear thin :)
    ps love your cushions!

  3. Top was unbelievably jealous of my blog and absolutely refused to look at Facebook! He would be so rude about it I hate to think what he would say about my Pinterest pages! Following you now by the way.
    How about twitter? I am having so much fun there...don't understand it but what the heck!!!! xxx
    P.S, Loved your cushion board...that are so not 'just cushions'!!!!

  4. Ahh, another blogger who has succumbed to the lure of instagram! Welcome to the club!
    PS - love the cushions.

  5. Another pearler, Ann. You never fail to make me smile. And the cushions are the bees' knees. J x

  6. Love those cushions. Why do men hate cushions so much? I always think of layering my bed with cushions, then I know I'll just have to keep picking them off the floor.....

    1. Every night I take four cushions off our bed. Every morning I put them back on. Husband gives me the same look every time he sees me doing it, I also do the same on my two kids' beds too. Sucker for punishment...


Thanks for taking the time to write, Ann x
