I came across this pillow the other day at T.J. Maxx and it spoke to much, I had to have it.   I  like birds, I enjoy birds.....they are very sweet,  pleasant to hear and watch but I never thought I would enjoy a bird fabric pattern in my cottage.  I LOVE the muted colors and I love natural (nature) things.  The cottage speaks that to me......even the shingle roof I chose (not intending) is from the woodland nature collection.

Here is a textured pillow I picked up to go with the bird pillow.  It's hard to tell from the pic but the button is brown, not black.   Or.......

here is the textured pillow in the soft lime-green.  They both are so nice.  I believe this bird pillow is going to set my accent color for the cottage.  Overall, these are "earthy" colors in the pillow....warm soft brown, muted soft gray and muted soft blue and limey green.

Although, the cottage will be very neutral, I am in love with this print.....  And I also give myself permission to change my mind, if I choose!

As my Grandmother use to say........Birds of a feather, flock together!  In this case, it's for decorating!



  1. so pretty, almost a water color feel:) what a darling color palette for the cottage, roxie! love it!

  2. Realy cute, I love pillows.

  3. Hi Roxie,
    I saw that pillow at Home Goods and thought it was so beautiful too. So happy you will have it in your new cottage decor. I think the colors are perfect and it is so cute.
    Hope all is coming along great with the cottage.

  4. Oh- I wish I could find one of those pillows for my Daughter-In-Law. She would LOVE it! I think it is just perfect for your cottage look! xo Diana

  5. Roxie,
    great finds! Love the colors in your bird pillow. I'm guessing that you'll find some more treasures in those colors to decorate your cottage with; it will be so cute.

    I'm of the mind-set that we should decorate with the things and colors that make us happy. I've never been one to bend to trends anyway~~~ *smile**.

    Have a happy day.

  18. Dear Roxie - I would not have been able to resist that pillow either. TJ Maxx - hmm - wonder if they have more near where I live. I am waiting to see more pictures of your cottage coming together. You will certainly make it beautiful when you get it finished. Have a great week.
