Pillow talk….

Pillow talk….

Don’t be thinking dirty y’all! 😉 Kidding, talking about fluffing those pillows and some pretty affordable pillows for your home!

Ok, first of all, I have to confess. I’m VERY OCD about pillows. I fluff them twice a day at least if not more. And I’m not talking karate chop fluff. Let me explain.

One day I was walking through a cute store here in Charleston and some pillows caught my attention. I picked them up and saw this tag that showed me how to fluff them. So I went home and tried this technique on my pillows and voila! I had fat and fluffy pillows again and they were fabulous!

It’s so easy it’s silly. But I have to share because I’ve never been introduced to this trick.

First, here are my flat pillows.

Flat Pillow

Hold by each corner in front of you, drop.

HOLD THE PILLOWS IN THE CORNERS

Pick up, hold the corner on each end on the opposite side and drop again.

REPEAT AND DROP

Voila! Look at that fluffy and plump little thing!

FLUFFED

OK, I may have been more amused than y’all, but I love it and do it often! Or another way is to put the pillow on it’s back and karate chop on each side, spin and karate chop and repeat until you reach desired fluffiness.

Continuing talking about pillows… here are a few that I felt were worthy of some blog attention. (what I’m saying is cute and affordable)

These Caitlin Wilson Textile pillows are darling for a solid color because they aren’t quite solid, the ribbon adds the right touch.

    Hah! Love your drop and plop method of fluffing. I typically go for the side fluff followed by a fierce “karate chop”. Yours is a less violent method:)
