Thanks to Struggling to be Stylish, I am the winner of a $75 gift certificate to CSN Stores, my first giveaway win ever. I won on May 5 and have yet to buy anything. That is because CSN Stores has approximately 50 kajillion items for sale.
If I add another $25, I could purchase the pillow of my dreams, pictured above, Thomas Paul's Sea Life Shell Pillow in charcoal. This is very much like, but even better than, The Most Beautiful Pillow Ever Made, which I posted about a year and a half ago.
But, being an optimizer rather than a satisficer, I cannot possibly be content with my first choice. Also, I need another throw pillow like I need a hole in the head.
What I could use is a hip clothes hamper, better lighting, a dining room table and maybe a neat little rug. I came up dry on the hamper. But the lighting and my ongoing quest for some kind of cool swing-arm lamp or sconce was another story.
