Speaking of  Ticking…that brings me to the giveaway…

One of you lucky readers will receive from me this beautiful pillow constructed of Vintage European Ticking.  It has beautiful rubber buttons and a down insert.  I purchased it from Dani at http://euro-linens.com/euro-linens/Home.html.  She also has a lovely little shop called Patine in the little town of La Selva Beach, and you can find her at the Alameda and Rose Bowl flea markets.
