The Throw Pillow

I've heard it said that one of the cheapest ways to redecorate a room is to paint it. I beg to differ. Have you priced a gallon of paint lately? Ouch!!
Throw pillows are not only an inexpensive way to introduce a new color to any room, they also add an instant "lived-in" appeal.
These denim beauties convey a homeyness with their mix and match patterns, and yet when grouped together, they also add a touch of luxury that invites you to curl-up and settle in for some real comfort.
This set is available at The Harmony in Life/ Made in Sylvania Shoppe in Sylvania, Ohio. If you're in the area this weekend, you won't want to miss the grand opening!

The Retro Messenger

Why retro?
Take a closer look at the print...large orange flowers...butterflies... groovy about a great blast from the past!
I found this funky print rummaging through an antique store while vacationing in Manistee, Michigan.
In a past 1960's life this fabric worked as kitchen, I still gave them window frames to peek out of for their time to shine in the spot light.
The bag was designed to accommodate notebooks--electronic or paper variety, folders, books, pencils, cell phone--you name it! I'm sure it won't disappoint. The long strap was made to be worn across the chest, giving the bag a perfect landing strip at the be, well...hip for school or office.
Now for the specs...the bag measures 14x13 and features reinforced stitching, top stitching, quilted detailing, full pocketed lining, and a double-button portfolio closure. Fun and function can live in harmony!
Speaking of harmony...this one-of-a-kind Messenger Bag can be purchased at The Harmony in Life Shoppe, found in Sylvania, Ohio, on Main Street. More info on this in an up-coming blog. Stay connected!
