I have always loved pillows like this:
Sweater-Knit Pillow Cover
And with the right sweater, I've even considered making a pillow like this:
But then I found these at Kohl's on clearance for $8.99, and then I got an additional 30% off with a coupon:
They are Euro Sham covers, and I had a few shamless Euro pillows that I had used on our Big Black Bed prior to selling it. (The old shams were sold at our garage sale: $10 for 3).
At first, the shams were a little too big for the pillows:
But a quick hot water wash and high heat dryer cycle took them down to a perfect size:
Pretty nice for $6.30 each. I don't think I could make them for cheaper than that, especially taking into account the time it would take to cut and sew an old sweater.
And remember the picture frame that I posted about here:
Well, since it's our anniversary month, I landed on this handmade card to fill the frame:
And finally, I changed out the bird picture above our fireplace from last month, and added a family photo.
Lucky's hand is on top, followed by my hand and then Bill's. We couldn't convince Charm to give us a hand. Next time:).
Here are some photos of the room as a whole:
