This happens. You're minding your own business, browsing with a particular project in mind, when a completely surprising fabric grabs your hand and yanks you over to the side, whisperingcustomized gifts, "You must have me; I'm so cool." That's exactly what happened with this wonderful pillow pair. The skeleton toile in a bright chartreuse with rich royal blue accents simply reached out and pulled us in.?

The fabric is The Romantics, from the creative minds at Alexander Henry Fabrics, a manufacturer known for clever and innovative designs.?

We loved how the scenes depicted were faithful recreations of classic toile patterns. It's not until you look closely that you notice the love birds enjoying the pastoral pleasures are skeletons.

It's a blend of eclectic elegance we found simply irresistible. In addition to the chartreuse and royal blue we selected, The Romantics is also available in Pink and Grey, Black and White, and Light Blue and Natural.??

To emphasize the whimsy of the design, we elected to ring the pillows with jumbo pom poms in a coordinating royal blue.?

The square pillow features twelve poms around the perimeter. The rectangular pillow has corner poms plus royal blue accent bands along each side.?

Add a little ghoulish glamour to your décor.

Our pillows finish at approximately 18" x 18" and 16" x 20" with 2?" poms.

NOTE: We always measure our pillow forms to check sizing. We found this pillow was narrower side to side. To account for this, we added a traditional??" seam allowance top and bottom as above with the 18" x 18" pillow form. But for the side-to-side cut width, we used 20" rather than 21". You may want to measure and adjust your cuts to best match your pillow form and your desired "pillow plumpness."?

If you follow our advice and use?linen tablecloths and linen napkins?every day rather than saving them for special occasions, sure there is a need to wash them regulary. Although it is not a tough task, washing linen tablecloths and napkins properly requires using carefully selected detergents and following instructions that would not make any harm for the fabric.
