See How Patient I Am

Well over a year ago I entered a contest on Centsational Girl’s blog and with the gift certificate I won I purchased 2 Euro pillow covers.

I won a gift certificate with which I purchased 2 Crane and Canopy Euro pillow shams banded in Monaco blue.

More recently I bought 2 pillows at Ikea for these covers.

These pillows are 26 inches by 26 inches.

At long last I can use them on our bed in the master bedroom.

The covers fit the Ikea Gosa Tulpan pillow inserts perfectly.

I put them out front for the photo but, because they’re so hug, I think they really must go behind the other pillows.

The Euro squares are luxurious in both size and fabric.

Is it coming together for you (like it is for me)?

What’s the last thing you won?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
