Friday Finds: Needlepoint Pillow

I like to regularly update my home decor, and since I’m on a tight budget, I rearrange. My linen closet is half full of throw pillows new and old, and I change them out seasonally or move them around the house to freshen up different rooms. Instead of replacing my sofa, I buy throw pillows.

I’ve long admired Jonathan Adler’s fantastic needlepoint pillows and hope to own one someday. In the meantime, I’ve kept an eye out for thrift store finds that evoke a similar feeling of playful beauty.

I chanced upon this piece on my third pass around the Panama City Beach Goodwill, and I’m a little obsessed with it. This handmade needlepoint sampler pillow measures 12×15 inches and cost me a whopping $3.25. The colorful, quirky mix of organic and geometric designs really spoke to me, and whether or not I ever add a Jonathan Adler pillow to my collection, I’m happy I found this one.

How do you update your home without spending much money? What was the last thing you bought at a thrift store?

    We acquired some furniture from Shawn’s aunt when she decided to “redo” her house 😉 It was an easy way to update (or downdate, some of the furniture was old) without spending money. I’m always willing to take whatever anyone will give me 🙂
