Day 62 – We all need throw pillows for our lawn furniture, no?

31 Mar

Who told me I needed these?

These being outdoor throw pillows. I think it was Home Depot, with their pretty stacks of pillows singing their siren song to me. All I can wonder now though, is who exactly, am I supposed to throw them at?

I know they are super-cute, but stay with me on this one.

Perhaps, if my lawn furniture looked like this and my patio overlooked a sweeping vista of the Adirondack Mountains, I’d need these.

Or if  my patio sat on the shores of the Mediterranean sea…

Or even just floated independently on its own little raft. That sounds like fun.

Or even if it was this.  Whatever the heck this is, it looks like an outdoor throw pillow would definitely spruce it up.

But  my lawn furniture looks like this.

You know what would jazz me right up? A moldy throw pillow, that's what!

And more often than not, just looks like this.


So, it would seem that tossing a throw pillow or two into that mix really isn’t going to improve much.

Even if it did (which it doesn’t), they’ve been outside for 3 years running. Nothing says welcome treasured guest to our home like offering them a moldy pillow to cuddle while they drink their white wine spritzer on the  lanai (that’s Golden Girls speak for cement porch).

Goodbye pillows. I will not be donating you. You’re headed for the trash.

And just a little thrift treasure to remind you, it’s fun to head out to the thrift store to donate… and tear up with laughter.

Broken glass tears, that is.


Shattered glass tears. Yikes! -Hang this one in the hard hat section of your home.

“And babe you givin’ me, givin’ me, nothin’ but shattered dreams, shattered dreams”

…and a good find, just for good measure.

I love you girls over at Apron thrift girl. This one’s for you!

I mostly take pictures, I rarely buy, but I LURVED this!


Happy Weekend Friends.

One more thing: Don’t forget to send me your awesome thrift store pics. I’ll link back to your blog and give you a big shout out. Not a blogger? No problemo , send me the pics anyway. We all want to see them! We do!

    Megan, don’t talk to me about cushions. I have them in the living room. Why? I don’t know. They certainly live up to their name “throw” cushions. They get thrown around the living room and finish up on the floor more than they’re ever on the damn couch! I’m just living a ‘shattered dream’ thinking that I’d ever be able to have a couch covered in lovely cushions!

    Mirrored glass artwork! Nice! I could just see one of those glass shards falling into my kid’s heads and then the ‘doinnggggg’ sound effect followed by a scream, followed by blood, followed by a trip to the ER! I’ll pass. LOL

      Thanks Kymberly. I am sure your patio is nestled right next to the shores of the Mediterranean, so you should be all good with that pillow. 🙂

      Thanks everyone. If I didn’t laugh about it It’d probably make me cry. I hope you enjoy.

    I just had to come back for a double dose of this post. You make me laugh every day and inspire me to let go of my warped lanai dreams. I’m gonna go tell my moldy throw pillows to SUCK IT. Thank you for that.
