Happy Monday.

I’m so glad you are here.

(totals aside: Hello from the Carribean. I worked on the posts for this week and had them scheduled before I left so if you have a question or comment I will answer everything next week. We are having the most amazing rest and my heart is overflowing with joy right now and I’m taking all the pictures to show all of you the outfits and the room and what we ate and what shows we went to and the view from the balcony of our stateroom. I’ll write an entire post about it when I get back, but I did want to share one photo from the cruise when it took off (you can scroll to the end you can see it—I didn’t want to interrupt the pillow conversation.)

Have you had coffee yet because I have the most fun thing for us today?

See these pillows? I am obsessed with them. They are embroidered and look so high-end and come in tons of different styles in different colors and different patterns and they look SO HIGH END.

I love love LOVE them.

If you are looking for a pillow for spring? I have the IDEAS. I’m sharing pillows I’ve ordered for my house over the years and a few new ones that I’ve discovered.

Are you ready to discuss?

Let’s GO.

I wasn’t even sure where to start there were so many amazing options.

Does this look like my house? Ummm. Yes. With extra topiaries on top.

I ordered this pillow last summer and it’s even prettier in person.

You can see the hooked pillow (it comes with the insert) here.

And look at these cuties.

They are from the same company as the topiary pillow and they come with the inserts, too.

The pillows look SO HIGH end in real life.

You can see the blue vase pillow with red flowers here.

And the blue vase pillow with yellow flowers here.

I seriously was over the moon when I stumbled across these pillow options.

I’m always on the hunt for pillows and these are some of the prettiest, most affordable, great-quality pillow covers ever. I had such a challenging time picking which ones to order.

This peacock pillow comes in a set of two—please note that these are just the covers.

You can see the embroidered set here.

And hello spring.

Isn’t this the sweetest vase of flowers? This embroidered set of pink tulip vase pillows comes in a set of two.

You can see them here.

I loved this embroidered pillow cover.

A few of the details. The pillow cover is 18″ x 18″ and the front is embroidered and the back is plain. There’s a hidden zipper that zips open and closed easily.

Every single piece on the front is embroidered. I tried to take close-up details so you could how intricate the pattern on the front of the pillow is. This pillow cover has pink and navy and gray and gold and tan and light blue and magenta.

Here’s another vase pillow option. (note: this is just like the pink pillow I shared earlier—I just went with the blue and white option instead).A few of the details. The pillow cover is 18″ x 18″ and the front is embroidered and the back is blue without any embroidery. There’s a hidden zipper that zips open and closed easily.

The flowers and the vase on the front are embroidered.

I tried to take close-up details so you could how intricate the pattern on the front of the pillow is. This pillow cover has a blue and white vase with a vine pattern and blue tulips with white daisies and green leaves.

You can see this pillow cover here.

While I LOVE a patterned pillow?

Sometimes you need a pillow friend that’s not so full of extra exclamation points.

Here are two pillow options that work well to mix and match with that pattern or they are pretty just by themselves.

Both of these are pillow covers—so you’ll need to add an insert to these pillow covers.

You can see the striped pillow option here.

And the polka dot pillow cover here.

And now?

Did you think I was only going to post blue and white pillow covers?

You know I have a little neutral in me.

Here are some neutral pillows I’ve ordered before that are so pretty.

I ordered two of the rope pillows (and actually used them outside in the pergola even though they are supposed to be indoor pillows).

You can see the rope pillows here.

I love this raised white polka-dotted pillow with tassels and this set of khaki and white pillow covers.

And then?

This sweet hooked golden retriever pillow sits in our living room right now. It reminds me of Buddy.

You can see the pillow (it comes with the insert here).

Just a quick hello from the ship as we were leaving.

It’s the first voyage of the Icon of the Seas with Royal Caribbean.

There were fireworks and ocean breezes and balloons and cheering and clapping and laughter and sparkling eyes…

…and I waved goodbye (temporarily) to America wrapped in the arms of this cutie.

I wish I could type the joy in my heart at this moment—it’s one that’s imprinted on my heart forever.

Life is full of so many amazing moments like this.

Thank you so much for letting me share them (and my pillow covers) with you. 🙂

PS You can also shop all these pillows (and a few more) in my Amazon shop here.

    Weather looks good, be happy you are there and not in the states. On to the pillows, did you see blue bird pillow cover? It is so cute too and would look good with your others. Have fun I'm off to check out more pillow options you posted.
