Well, as the weather turns colder, and the day and nights darker- the spring and summer like euro shams feel inappropriate. I wanted cozy pillow shams with some darkness and weight- does that even make sense?? I also wanted to stick to the current color scheme of the room and spend as little money as possible to complete this task.
Little did I know- euro shams are hard to come by and a bit pricey. Here's what I found:
This one has the weight and texture I am going for, but I want it in a darker color:
This euro sham from Pottery Barn is almost there, but I still want something darker and for $34 each sham- it needs to be cheaper.
These shams from the Crate and Barrel Outlet are perfect- I love both the green and pink and they are super on sale- one problem- they only have the standard size left. Urg.
I also like the idea of maybe mixing in some flannel and plaid- but again no Euro. One would think that Martha would be all about a fancy Euro pillow?
Are you sensing my frustration? Who knew that Euro Shams could cause so many problems.
I finally decided to take matters into my own hands.....
After a quick $20 trip to JoAnn's and about two chick flicks later (yes, I cut and sew with only the best entertainment), I had properly winterized our bedroom:
Molly Mutt animal beds, and made Huck pose once again.
Do you winterize any room in your house? Or do you think I am crazy pants too?
