Here we are again....back to talk about those fascinating little accessories that can add so much pizazz to any room - pillows! When was the last time you visited a local shop just to take a look at all the "irresistible" embellishments that you can find on pillows these days? You can find beaded trim, braided rope cording, brush fringe, bullion fringe, buttons, welting, feather trim, tassels, ruffles, pearls...just to name a few! It is is whole world of opportunity for you to show off YOUR personality in your room just by what kind of pillows you like. Give it a try, the next time you are out shopping, go browse the pillow aisles. I bet you won't be able to leave without purchasing a few, since I'm sure you will find them all ... "Simply Irresistible".
