I’ve made a few easy updates at the MCC House to get it fluffed up for summer, courtesy of the folks at Society6.  I had a pretty tough time choosing exactly what would look best because they have so many things to choose from, but I finally narrowed it down!

Society6 is pretty amazing.  Independent artists from around the world upload their artwork, and then customers can purchase it on 30+ premium consumer goods–everything from throw pillows, to shower curtains, to wallpaper.  So if you love Elizabeth Taylor’s “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together” quote as much as I do (it’s kind of a classier version of “Time to put on your big girl panties”), then you can buy it on a phone case, or a coffee mug, or a T shirt, etc. Every purchase pays an artist!

I was thrilled to see that artist and fellow blogger Craftberry Bush and Annechovie (I use her gorgeous matchboxes throughout the house) are part of Society6, and I grabbed one of Annechovie’s Staffordshire dog throw pillows in preparation for Christmas.  I know it’s early, but I’ve been eyeing this one for quite some time!

A quick side note on the pillows: you can order indoor or outdoor fabric, plus choose the size you need (16 x 16, 18 x 18, 20 x 20, or 24 x 24).  They are zipper pillow covers and come with poly inserts, although I usually use my own down inserts just because I like their shape better.  They’re a great price and they almost always have a coupon offer if you sign up for their emails {here}.

As often happens in our house, my daughter was all about scoring a few new things for her bedroom.  She loves Frida Kahlo’s colorful, surrealist style, and she just finished a year-long online Art History course.  So when we found this Frida pillow that matches the colors of her room, I knew we were going to put it in our cart.

Doesn’t it work perfectly with the pinks and aqua blues in her room?

She also found a piece of artwork that she loves that we put on an easel on her nightstand:

Don’t worry if you’re not absolutely sure that your order will work in your home; their easy return/replace/exchange policy keeps things simple.

My final score was a guest towel in my favorite colors: blue and white.
