The cure for the common (and tacky) bathroom...

Who wants a tacky cardboard box of kleenex or rolls of toilet paper out when guests come to your home?? not me! You probably did what I did which was tuck them away. However, during their visit, if you run out of toilet paper or they need a tissue your guests will have to look for them in your cabinets!! 

Oh the horror!!! 

I have another solution.....

Ta Da!

Cute and 100% functional. You can have a matching set in the bathroom. Have a tissue box next to each bed, or out in your living room... instead of it taking away from the decor, it will be adding to it!


Also these little babies wont break the bank... $25 for the tissue box cover, and $29 for the toilet paper cover... as always comes with complimentary monogramming. We can match any color or decor as well!

Isn't that great!

Inspiration Courtesy of Lake Tahoe...

We headed out last weekend to Lake Tahoe to spend some time with some of our favorite cousins down south! We had a fantastic vacation! To say thank you to our family who put us up in their lovely home in Tahoe, we created two fresh new pillow designs to give them for their lakeside retreat!

We think they are so darling that these pillows are now permanent fixtures in the shop! The large throw pillow is 18x18 and made with outdoor fabric so that it can grace both your couch or your patio! The small door pillow is perfect to hang on your front door to alert your neighbors that the only place they are going to find you is on the water!

If you are venturing to the lake this summer or need a gift for someone with an appreciation for all things nautical. Keep these in mind!

... and here are a few pictures from our trip:

 All of us at the Lone Eagle for dinner! (Frank, Linda, Mom/Julie, Kimmy, and yours truly!)

 The Girls on the Lake!

We had to go to Gar Wood's for a Wet Woody!

 Kimmy and I at Pier 111 for a sunset cocktail!

As you can was a fabulous time! 

That's all for now!

Monogrammed Car Mats!

So you just bought a new car! Why not make it your own?? New down at the shop... Personalized car mats from the southern belle. We are in love with them!

Here are some samples:

And here is how it works!

We have just ordered ones for ourselves... and they look best when you pick colors that go with your car! For example... I have a red ford escape and I ordered Navy Chevron with a Round Rose frame and my initials in Round monogram. My mother ordered Smoke Ikat with a round grass frame and her initials in Fancy to go with her oh so fancy Silver Lexus GX. 
Love love love!
Contact the shop or pop on by if you would like the floor of your car to be as cute as ours!!

One Fantastic Birthday Gift...

This is going to be my go to birthday gift from now on...

You bake cupcakes, cookies, or a cake for the birthday girl (or boy if they happen to like baking and monograms) and deliver it in this...

How cute! Spend a little time baking something special and deliver it in their gift! I love it and they retail in my shop for just $50 - that includes the monogramming!! If it is for a super special birthday or for a family member you could include the "Let them eat cake" pillow. I hang that pillow outside my front door the whole month of January for my birthday. Lets be honest- birthdays should last the whole month!

little joys...

I was monogramming today... something which I LOVE to do. Its probably my favorite part of the job (That and the etching- but etching is really messy and I end up looking like a dust ball after).

I looked up and this was what I saw...

I said... "This!"

love my job. thats all.

Tomorrow I will be posting some fun new throw pillows. This week I got by with some help from Ralph Waldo Emerson...
That's the only hint you are getting.

FYI- sometimes when I say tomorrow it actually means, sometime in the next 3 days... so bare with me- we are a bunch of busy bees around these offices!

A few of our favorite things...

Here is a little taste at what we have "in store"... so to speak :)

Keep in mind that we carry a lot of products...
so I might have to make this more than one post!

Lets start with the basics from our own collection...
(lots and lots of Pillows of every shape and size)

Monogrammed Glassware... pints, wine goblets (pictured), champagne glasses, bucket glasses, decanters, vases, pitchers, and apothecary jars.
(This picture was taken from my friend, Lynne's Bridal Shower... they made pretty darn cute favors... especially since the shower was at a vineyard!)

Monogrammed Kleenex Box Covers...

Now...on to the retail goods!
Totes, Cosmetics, Duffels, Handbags...
(I love this photo... it was actually the luggage from our annual girls trip to the Sisters Rodeo! My friends are quite supportive... and have fantastic taste if I do say so myself!)

Monogrammed Silk/Cashmere blend Pashminas & Cashmere Scarves
Monogrammed Yoga Mats...
Collection of Antique Ginger Jars... These are amazing one of a kind pieces! One of my personal favorite items we carry. They aren't exactly monogrammable... but they are definitely my style!

Now! A few collections that are quite close to my heart...
These are custom companies that we carry in our gift shop!

Dabney Lee:
Stationary, wall monograms, lucite trays, note pads, cell phone cases, clipboards, memo pads, cake trays, recipe boxes, the list goes on and on...
Love this line...

The Southern Belle Boutique:
Clipboards, laptop cases, phone cases, agenda books, cutting boards, coozies, melamine plates, trays, cube notes, water bottles, and a lot more!

(I had to picture a bunch of the phone cases...
I own 7!! I can't get enough)

Anyway.. that is a taste of what we carry!

You get the idea!

Well Hello!

This is the Blog for Pillow Talk! A Design house, home decor store, wholesaler, and purveyor of all things monogrammed! If it can be personalized... I have got to get my hands on it! We are an ever expanding/evolving business out of Eugene, OR.

First... lets talk about the "we".... WE are Julie and Megan Budge... and WE are mother/daughter business owners or "Mom and Dot shop" owners (sounds a lot cuter that way)...
(This is us... I, Megan, am on the right. My mother Julie is on the left)

This blog is going to serve as a way to keep everyone updated with what is going on with us, our business, and the store! We will be posting about new product, business, trips, family anecdotes, and things that inspire us!

Oh... and this is Gracie...
She also works at the store!
She greets everyone who comes in to the shop... expect a lot of photos of her.

The great thing about working with your family is that while it can be challenging at times... it is also very rewarding because work and home is interconnected. That is a big part of how our business is run and why it works so well. We don't put work before family or family before work... it is one and the same. So you might be hearing about family vacations or relatives in town along with all of our business ventures! Just a warning!

For now... thanks for reading! Thanks for following!
Welcome to the world of Pillow Talk!
