I dream of...

...endless pillows.


I realize that I am totally dating myself with the revelation that the TV show "I dream of Jeannie" was, for me as a young child, a visual treat that fed my imagination and started these mad cravings for textiles and pillows...more pillows!


The cushy inside of Jeannie's bottle was a fantasy of glittery cocooning that really appealed to me.

I was browsing the interwebs in search of inspiration stuff to buy for a room zhush and I noticed my additions to several baskets were all in pillow form and I lingered over other stuffed square and rectangle bits longer than anything else.

"I am coming to your house" this one squeaked.

"Me too, crazy lady!" this one joined in with.

Can I just fill my whole freakin' house with pillows?
Yes, they would lose their visual impact but not their "Jeannie bottle" AKA grown up ball pit appeal.
Why not just a bunch of generic bed pillows?

If it were simply for the flop of a a room sized bed, I would be imagining that, but Jeannie's bottle is pretty (in 5 year old terms) and I could love the indulgence of tons of soft, fluffy, gorgeous pillows.

Maybe I should check into a twelve pillow program.

I love pillows, too. But I have such a hard time picking coordinating ones! So I have a lot of pillow forms around that my husband is constantly asking me "do we need this?". Ummm... YES! I'll cover them one day!

We can room together at the rehab resort, because I'm right there with you. It is pathetic how much I could spend on pillows if left to my own devices.

I'm hugely dating myself on my blog today, so I'll admit to also being a fan of the show. I didn't like the bottle though. I have mild claustrophobia so it was alarming to me! I thought Larry Hagman was adorable : )

Hi Kerry! What a fantastic treat to learn that you featured my pillows here today! Can't thank you enough. Clearly I am a pillow freak, too. And I laughed about Jeannie -- my favorite show as a kid!

Kerry pillows are one of my ways to update my rooms and I have a bit of a stash! From velvety antique Mohair and Silk to linen and Embroidered fabrics!

Your blog definitely got my attention because I've always told my hubby that I want a Jeannie room meaning a room that looked and felt like I just transported myself into Jeannie's bottle! Sadly I won't have a whole room for it but I think I will be able to pull off a reading nook (future blog post)I am a new follower!
