This Just In...Ballard Designs

At long last I found a Spring 2009 Ballard Designs catalog in my mailbox last weekend and immediately browsed through to check out the new offerings. Ballard hit it out of the park this time; I found several things that I'd like to bring home.

Queen Bee pillow: What else is there to say? It's just a great little accent pillow.

Hampton Braided Jute Rug: I've been waiting for Ballard to come out with a natural jute braided rug. Natural fiber rugs are a favorite in our homes because they are inexpensive and so versatile. (check out some new additions to our dining spaces)

Celia Outdoor Rug: Absolutely love it in Black or Natural.

Dog Bed Cover with Insert: I like it in Sand, and especially like that the cover is machine washable -- a must for any dog owner.

Capiz Mirror: Check out the measurements -- it's 36" x 42"! What a great size.

Elise Linen Panel: Could be to die for in Ebony. I would use smaller scale hardware than shown here, and let the contrast of the panel shine through.

Set of four Channel Stitched Placemats: Cream's my favorite, can be used in most color schemes.

These were my top picks -- did anything else jump out at you guys?

Erin, thank you for creating my future "shopping cart" on Ballard this spring... now I can skip the shopping step and go right to checking out. I think that rug (in natural) and the panel drapes need to find a place in my house!!!

That 'Queen Bee' pillow is to die for! $49 is a little steep for me..must think of DIY option..

I agree... the pretties pillows are always more than I'd like to spend. DIY pillows are on my list of things to do!

True...$49 is too much, but that's why I'll wait for it to go on sale :-)
