Cottage Charm Giveaway

5.16.2010

I am joining the fourth annual Cottage Charm giveaway that runs to May 29th sponsored by Twice Remembered Cottage. This is a multi-blog month long giveaway. I was cleaning out a closet and came
across this beautiful euro sham that I bought a couple of years ago while in Boulder, Colorado. I was doing some shopping there in a very nice area and found this home decor store. I went in and thought I wasn't going to buy anything because everything was so expensive. I came across this beautiful fabric down on the bottom shelf and pulled it out and it was this gorgeous sham. There was no price tag on it and I was a little embarrassed to have to ask. When she told me $130.00 for just one sham I about had a stroke, but it was so gorgeous and perfect for my bedroom at that time. So I thought about it and decided to bite the bullet and get it. I tend to spend more when I am out of town than I would at home. I think it is because I may never see that where I live and don't want to miss out getting something I love. We spent over three hundred dollars on sheets when we were in Italy and I really don't like them as much as my cheaper ones, but they are beautifully made.

Since my bedroom has changed several times since purchasing this sham I no longer have a need for it. Sooooo I am offering it to you!!




This is how it looks with a pillow insert. It will not come with an insert. Just the cover.
It measures 30 x 30 from ruffle to ruffle. The pillow part measures 24.5 x 24.5. It takes a euro size pillow.


The material is a heavy linen cotton blend and is thick and a heavy weight. This photo captures the texture.
It has this one large bird surrounded by flowers.


The color of it is not red it is more of a raspberry. Lot of pink in it.

This shows the back with the fold opening for the pillow to be inserted. 
This is without the insert.
This sham may not be everyone's style, but it would make a great gift, too. It was only used on my bed
for just a few months decoratively.

  26. Sorry Kim, I wasn't trying to just win your sham. I have been reading your blog for months and get every post. I thought maybe I was one of the faceless people. I haven't had my little red haired lady for only a few weeks. I resigned again and see what happens. I never win anyway but I don't sign up for many giveaways. LOL

  27. I love the pillows. My favorite colors.
    I got to Boulder probably 3 times a year when I visit my kids that live nearby. Love that town. Just love walking down the street and seeing the "unusual" performers.
    Have a good Sunday.

  30. I am a follower, also. When I saw the pillow, I had to read on! Does it count that I have my 60th birthday on the 29th! I also have the PERFECT place for the pillow. I am redoing my first floor guest room & it would be the eye-grabbing thing for the ecru bedding. If I don't win it, I know that I need to find something like it. It has won my heart, whether I win it or not.

    When I saw your sham I had to enter...
    Although my home is basically whites and pastels...
    My lower level is all antiques and primitives with rich deep colors.
    I've never featured it...someday.
    I have the perfect spot and piece of furniture for this charming pillow...
    I still can't get over that kitchen of yours,
