Summertime Blues

With the change of the season, I wanted to "cool down" our family room by moving away from the red and black colors in the room.  While browsing a new to us thrift store in town, we found a set of beautiful blue paisley throw pillows.  And because they were yellow tag items, they were 75% off!  We walked away with two gorgeous pillows in great condition for only $3! 

Also while out, we stopped at one of our favorite Goodwill locations in town.  And right there in the household section were two blue rose throw pillows that seemed made to go with the paisley pillows we picked up earlier.  The rose pillows from Goodwill were $1.29 each.   

To bring in more blue, I placed this Pier 1 bird plate on the side table next to the sofa.  I found this plate (along with a matching red one) at a yard sale a few weeks back for $2.
