Right Place Right Time

4.12.2012

Yesterday I went to a new to me antique mall and found something that I will share in another post, but then on the way home my car decided to whip into the parking lot where the Ballard Designs Outlet was and I am so glad it did.

I went in not expecting to really find anything, but then there it was. I heard a choir of angels singing!
Oh, alright, not really, but I did find a bargain to just keep feeding my pillow addiction.


Do you see it?

How about now? One wooly pillow with le mouton, that would be sheep in English, in case you did not know, on the front.

Just look at all that yummy texture. This pillow is pretty large, too at 20 x 20. I didn't like the polyester insert that came in it so I just grabbed an extra down insert and switched it.

The down insert makes it so much fuller and fatter. I don't like skimpy wimpy pillows.

I thought Le Mouton would feel at home here under its cousins' pictures above.

This was the only pillow in the store and the regular price was $54.99. The outlet price was $35.99. That is a much better deal, but still not what I paid. No, no.
It was an extra 40% off for a grand total of 
$23.99!! 
Doing the happy dance here!

So thank you to my car for stopping at the right place at the right time.

I can't wait till Leila sees it and baaaaaaas at it. That is what she does every time she sees a sheep.

And speaking of pillows. Come back tomorrow for a pillow GIVEAWAY!


I also purchased something else at Ballard's, too, but you will have to wait and see.

Well, alright here is a peek.

  7. Great buy, Kim! Where on earth do you put all these pillows? Mine are all about. And then of course I sew them. So they're everywhere. I so wish I was near some of these wonderful outlets.

  9. What a great find! I love the texture and it looks perfect with your sheep prints. I grinned at the part about Leila's sheep sounds, boy does that take me back to when I had little ones around! We finally sold our house and the new one has a room I want to transform into a sun room like yours... all it needs is a few more windows installed and it there! Any hoo, be ready for me to inundate your email box with tons of questions! Lisa

    ReplyDelete
  28. cute pillow! I'm often jealous of the great stores you can shop at in the States! I wish we had one north of the border!

  29. I love that pillow and what a great deal! It's a good thing we don't live close Kim because we would get into a lot of trouble shopping together LOL! Wish we had a Ballard outlet here.

    ReplyDelete
  30. how cool that your car just KNOWS to turn in there! I'm thinking one of these would be happy at my house too!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think you bought the burlap fringe drapes? I can't wait to see for sure ...

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ahhhhh... nothing like the feeling of finding something you love for an amazing discount!! Sadly, I don't live near a Ballard outlet... if I did, I think my car would be driving itself there a lot :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. That pillow is fabulous and looks great under those pictures on the wall.

    Wonderful find...I agree.

    ReplyDelete
  34. LOVE that pillow. Isn't it funny how kids pick up on something like that and then do it over and over. When our son was about 18 mos old the kids would say (when we were visiting the farm)..let's go down and see the cows. They would traipse down to the barn and the cows would be out in the pasture and there would be one old horse standing there. So, until he was 3 he would say...oh..Cows..and make a horse sound when he saw them in the fields. Yeah...he is still crazy!

    You are a BAAAAAAd girl to tease us with your other find. xo Diana

  40. Love your new pillow. Yes! A down pillow insert is always sooooo nice!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi Kim,
    Great find...Love it! Sooo cute. And I am with you about the skimpy, wimpy pillows...Don't like them. I love how with down you just give them a little fluff and they are back to their fluffy shape.

    Hugs and Kisses,
    ♥Ana

  44. Oh Kim, you just have the best places to shop. Love the pillow! Looks great there, too.

    Are those curtains that you gave a sneak peek??

    I have been stopping by just not commenting much. Been a rough year...Hoping to post something tomorrow.

  63. Great buy on that pillow and how lucky you are to have a Ballard Outlet. I live about 40 minutes from a Ballard retailer but honestly the store is really dark and the displays are uninspiring. In the same mall is a wonderful Z Gallerie that blows it away.
