    Old Fashioned Down Feather Pillows

    I can't sleep without my pillows.  They have to be the old fashioned feather pillows.  Not the new ones with the "stick feathers" that poke you in the face.  The old fashioned ticking that is like denim with the soft down. Love the cold side of an old fashioned down pillow...

    I love to get into a cold bed

    rather than a hot one! In a cold bed you can quickly huddle up, and soon you're warm! If you have company you're not thinking about the cold side of the pillow!

    Pillow Talk

    Yes it's pillow talk time. Laying in bed. Your body flushed with heat. Tossing and turning when suddenly your hands reach out, gripping the closest thing. Twisting it in your grasp suddenly your skin is brushed with that cool touch and a sigh escapes your lips. Mmmm love the cold...

    Pillows

    I like the picture of the brand new fluffy pillows. It makes me feel so fresh! As if I had a nice shower and a fulfilling nights sleep. Crisp sheets and brand new socks. Pressed pants and a clean shave.

    OOOHHHH Yeah!!!

    It's gotta be cold, or I can't get comfy!...The rest of the bed can be warm..the room itself can be warm, but my pillow, and face must be cold... I keep a small fan bedside to assure that, and have even had the bed next to the window so I could put my head on the pillow in the...

    I feel like it helps me fall asleep faster. I hate it when everything is warm and its like impossible to fall asleep because you are trying to get comfortable. When that happens to me, I just get up and walk around and wait for the blankets and pillows to cool down.

    The Pillow's Always Cooler On The Other Side

    It's a hot night. I'm tossing and turning trying to find the right spot. My pillow feels like it just came out of the dryer. Then, like a second chance, I flip my pillow over and the cool side greets me with affection. That just made my night a lot easier.

    Who doesn't love curling into a comfy bed,

    pulling a light (yet heavy) fluffy duvet over you, squishing your face into your pillow, and then slowly sliding your hand under the cool and inviting underside of your pillow. It's one of life's simpler pleasures.

    I can't go to sleep unless the pillow is cold.

    It bothers me when it is warm.

    Chill Out

    I love the cold side of a pillow but I have found this new thing at Brookstone called a chill pad and now both sides of my pillow are cool all night long.

    Sometimes when I'm restless at night,

    shifting side to side, flipping my pillow over and feeling the cool, calming temperature, sometimes that's all I need. ☺😪

    When I Can't Fall Asleep

    it's the best thing. I'm not sure why it's so soothing when I need my blankets to be warm and heavy, but I still love it. Recently I haven't needed the cold side of the pillow because of my medication, but I know it's there if I need it.

    It’s quite remarkable really,

    the odd affect this has on us. We toss and turn in bed or find it uneasy, we are unable to rest, and suddenly we remember and flip our pillow to be welcomed by this little shock of the cool surface, but now we are free to rest. What is it about the cold side? It alters your...

    Past time for a good nights sleep. A quick glass of water and a couple of Hershey's Kisses w/ Almonds. Time for my second favorite part of the evening....time to flip that pillow over and snuggle my head into that chilly goodness! Night y'all!!!!!

    It's just so soothing

    when you're really tired. Once my head touches that side, I fall instantly asleep. I hate sleeping in a hot room or on a warm pillow, I just get so irritable and I start tossing and turning, trying to find a cold spot

    Cooling, Comforting, And Relaxing

    When laying in bed and you just can't get comfortable or relax, you're just a little to warm...simply turning the pillow over can change those feelings immediately. The coolness on the other side can make you smile just because you know now you can relax and fall to sleep....the...

    I Turn My Pillow Over

    several times a night. Someone should invent a pillow that will stay cool all night. I'd buy a few, and give them as gifts.
