The Red Pillows

This is not an original idea!!
 I got this idea from another blogger.
I was reading one of my favorite blogs, 
Savvy Southern Style.
Debra from Common Ground  was sharing pictures of her favorite room as a part of a series.
I noticed that she had the cutest red pillows on her loveseat.

I thought I needed to get some until I remembered I had some.

They were buried deep within our linen armoire upstairs.
I just never thought to use these pillows anywhere but on a bed because they were part of a Ralph Lauren set. I bought them off of e-Bay. The seller makes them from sheet sets. 
They were only $15.00 each. 

They add an adorable pop of summer color without being too nautical now that July 4th is over.

I pulled out some of my Old Britain Pink Castle dinnerware and my beaded fruit from the sixties.
These blingy bits of fruit were all the rage among crafters back in the day and I love to display them in the summer.
I feel sure that if I were grown by then I would have been beading with the best of those pearl and pump wearing ladies. 

I know that there are of times when we as bloggers get inspiration from each other just as Debra inspired me.
 If for some reason you get some inspiration from "Let's Add Sprinkles" please just pop me a comment.

I love to hear from you and I adore your comments.
I'd welcome hearing that you have been inspired.

So fresh for the rest of summer. 
I love to get inspired.
