I find myself saying this a lot, but it bears repeating: It's all in the details. I feel like that's true for just about anything in life, but pleated pillows in hand-dyed linen? Those are my kind of details*. Take pleasure in the small things, even if it's just a pleat!
*Also: the smell of fresh laundry, my dog's eyebrows, handwritten notes, presents tied with ribbon, and the color of my husband's eyes when the sun catches them just so.
