Putting Out An APB On Jute Braid Pillows

I have been meaning to go to Homegoods for the past 2 weeks to get baby boy a Christmas stocking.  I finally made it there this weekend and they had SO MUCH good stuff I had to really restrain myself to not make unnecessary purchases. This has been a very hard skill to learn.  In another life (read: pre-baby and pre-unemployment) I would have bought everything.  Just because.

Look at this cool trunk:

Anywho, back to the matter at hand.

I've been coveting these Jute Braid pillows at Pottery Barn,

Jute Braid Pillow Cover

but didn't want to spend $39 for the 4 that I need want. 

And then came across almost identical ones at Homegoods for $19.99!

I want light blue to continue my light color theme in the living room.  A year ago I would have bought the ones that "kinda" met my needs and then bought new ones 2 months later because I couldn't fool myself into liking them anymore.   I didn't see that color choice in the rows of pillows so decided to move on.  See my progress here, people?

Then I saw it........sitting in the little boy bedding section......

However, it was not the size I wanted and it had a stain on it.  Again, the old me would have purchased it.  Commence the applause for my dedication.

So - I am calling out to you, dear bargain shoppers, to keep your eyes out for the square blue jute framed pillow at Homegoods/TJ Maxx/Marshalls on your next visit.  I'd like 4, 2 would suffice.

Thank you.
