My horoscope said something about exploring a distant land and investigating options for inspiration. Naturally I checked my bank account and it's message was more like “pipe dreams girlfriend, there’s no vacation money here for you”!
Within minutes, I kid you not, I wound up on West Elm’s Discover Morocco Sweepstakes. I honestly have no idea how I got there, destiny maybe? Of course I entered and crossed my fingers and toes and wished upon the universe to let me win. After all, my Leo horoscope is practically begging me to be there, so it's meant to be! Right?!
Finally after some daydreaming and official research, I discovered how much I was loving the Moroccan Pouf. I don’t know what I like better, the fact that they call it a Pouf or that I found so many gorgeous ones! .
Created by skilled men and women artisans from different regions of Morocco,these handcrafted poufs have been a traditional staple of Moroccan home decor for centuries.
In addition to their striking decorative nature, these part ottoman/part footstools can also function as a coffee table or extra seating. They make great floor accessories and can be used in just about any room.
They come in a full scope of colors, leathers and metallics, and are distinguished by their shape and stitching. I found this spectacular silver handstitched leather silver Morocaan Pouf on overstock.com that would add a jolt of exotic flair to any home! You'll be singing The Clash's "Rock the Casbah" in a heartbeat!
In the meantime, let's keep trying to win that trip to Morocco and turn those pipe dreams into reality!
* Ironicly enough, I just heard “Rock the Casbah” the other day - a great song that I always annoyingly subject my friends to listen to me change the words from “Sharia don’t like it” to “Sherin don’t like it” - I'm chuckleing even as I type it, I don't think they're as amused as I am , but they put up with me!
