I recently purchased some new pillow covers from an awesome Etsy seller. She has contacted me & will offer you Free Shipping on any 3 pillow covers or more through the end of September.

She uses a lot of the new fabrics from Waverly, Michael Miller and Amy Butler and can customize the size for you. How awesome are these new covers that will totally update your space?!
