Euro Shams

I know, I know....I  have been such a slacker with posting lately!!!
 I've had so much going on in my life from weddings, trips, back to school, and guess what else, I have also been re-painting my "re-painted" kitchen;) I just started today and I LOVE the color soooooo much better!!!  I lived around the first blue color and decided I wasn't IN LOVE with it so we are on to the 2nd color! PHEW...this kitchen paint color has been such an ordeal!!! :) But I think this color is here to stay! 

Since I have SOOOO many projects going on and very little pictures of completed projects, I thought I would share a quick tip on bedding. As I am sure most of you know, I am CRAZY about bedding! So over the past few years, I have come up with a few helpful tips that REALY make a difference!

   Here is a picture of 2 Euro Shams.  
One has a 26x26 insert and the other has a 30x30 insert.

Even though a Euro sham is the traditional 26x26 I have always felt that the 26X26 insert leaves it looking, well...A bit sad! 

I really like nice and puffy pillows that look brand new year after year. Buying a REALLY good insert,makes all the difference. 

while putting a 30x30 insert in the case, it can take a little bit of pushing and prodding to get it in, but the result is well worth the extra effort!  

I just picked up these 30x30 inserts at my local "Home Fabrics" store.

Here's to Happy Pillowing!


  1. I totally agree. The fuller the better. I want to rest my head on a full pillow.BTW, liking the distressed headboard too!

  2. Why didn't I think of that. I hate how our euros are sagging. Now I know what to do. Thanks for the idea.

  3. Great tip. Thanks for sharing.
