My dear friend Jon has a knack for finding the most lovely unexpected things. Check out these wonderful pillows from the Bloomberg offices in London:

Valerie and I had a fabulous time brainstorming what the couches in our Oxford houses (or her house in Abilene, fondly known as House 9) would have said. "Oxford," "gelato," "Whitby," "kebabs," "travel," "Blackwells," "Canterbury," "Aldates," "open market"...the list goes on...all the way to Val's favorite, "talent show extravaganza!" I told her she'd have to have a whole room for that one. :)

If I had more than one small loveseat in my small flat, what would I want my couch(es) to say? I think I'd want them to say things like "Dance," "Live," "Laugh," "Joy," "Hope" and "Friend." Maybe "Stay" or "Relax" or "Play." What would your couches say?

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Or, my personal favorite, "Leave room for the holy spirit."

I would also second "G&D's" and "dance"

Katie, I love dance, stay, joy... You know, if anything can be determined from the words we would want on our couches, I am pretty sure we could have been roomies :)

I bet one could make these fairly easily.

"HAPPY" "FORGIVE" I'd have constant reminders :))

Katie, thanks for bringing the copy of "Radiant" magazine by the desk tonight. It's spectacular, and I ended up subscribing online before I even finished the issue! I hope to see some more of YOUR articles inside the next few issues! :-)

Wee! I totally can't get enough of these pillows. I think I may attempt to make a set of my own.
