The Thursday Three- square French style pillow covers/cases

French style pillow coversFound these three in charity shop in UK, maybe the missing fourth suffered a terrible stain related accident?

Large, heavy,  soft white cotton with cotton/linen centre panels with woven double squares in a natural/gold colour . Probably for the cave bedroom (although there will be subtle neutrals in every room) ideal to introduce a little texture on the bed.

Pretty sure that I would have paid more than £1.50 GBP (all three!) in a brocante or specialist antique textile shop.

 

If you are reading this Lorraine, I might reveal my sources for a small fee

Label is faded and tells me nothing- they look very French country rustic.

British cushion covers are generally smaller , and of course our native pillow cases are oblong.

  2. Don’t you ever get concerned about the amount knowledge you now have about the most weird and wonderful things such as the sizes and material of pillow cases from different countries around the world…. 😉 ?

    Lorraine? What about the rest of us? “Best charity and resale shops of London.” If you limit it to two or three people, what a fun tour! Actually, I’m envious that you have time to pick through those shops. One day my free time will come….

    • I am NOWHERE near London!
      Free time? I haven’t any either , I’m self employed with an office at home and travel all over the UK for work; so I have to make sure I put the hours in.
      I just “divert” after my thrice weekly trip to the post office! I need my little French fix

        Ah, the old diversion technique, combined with the old “get out of the picked-over big city shops” strategy. As we say back in the New World, it’s a killer combination. You manage it quite well.
