Husbands And Wives Boudoir Pillow

This pillow does have some rather nice suggestions…

Lay down the law with this pillow summarizing “Etiquette Between Husbands and Wives.” Outlining the niceties necessary for matrimonial bliss, the 100% cotton cushion enforces an atmosphere of fair play. Perfect as a gift for recently engaged and newlywed friends, this pillow will also be right at home on your marital bed. Features such gems as “Do not require a request to be repeated,” “Never make a remark calculated to bring ridicule upon the other” and “Never neglect the other, for all the world beside.” Cotton with polyfill stuffing. The pillowcase is sewn in China. The pillowform insert, design and silkscreen decoration are all done in the USA.

Embroidery on one side reads: On Duty; on the other Off Duty…just don’t forget to turn over the pillow. 250 thread count cotton. Fits standard size pillows. These are identical pillowcases sold as a set of two.”

Draper Stripe Ash bedding

Bedding can definitely be a challenge to find; this set is a great choice because it’s yarn dyed, which creates a softer feel than printed fabric, and it’s got stripes that add interest and color without overwhelming a smaller room.

reinterpreted ornamentation in a fresh, minimal style for the
contemporary home. Attention to detail makes this collection
distinctive and unique – from the rich hand of the fabrics to the
addition of trim and fine tailoring.”

Draper Stripe Ash Standard Shams (pair), $77.00
Draper Stripe Ash Euro Square Cases (pair), $88.00
