New Spring Pillows!! #altardstate

Monday, March 19, 2018

I love to have a plain backdrop in decorating rooms at our house in New Mexico. For example, I have plain, white matelasse bedding on the beds, and like to change the pillows and duvets with the seasons!!

 I do the same thing with pillows around the house. I love to keep them seasonal!!

When I was back in Texas a few weeks ago, I went shopping while waiting to meet a friend for dinner in San Antonio. I walked past Alar'd State clothing store and went inside to check the price and a cute romper I saw in the window. I hadn't been in this store in years, and was just blown away by all the cute home decor items they have with scripture and other great sayings on them!!

My favorite was this one:

I bought three of these!! One for me, one for my mom, and one for my sister!! We remind each other of these words very often. This is one of my favorite hymns. It was sung at R's service and when I saw these words on this pillow, I had to have it!!

I also bought these:

I love this one too so much!! It reminds me of what I want for myself and fall short so many times!! I want to Be Still. And know that He is God and is in control!! It also reminds me of my "phrase" that I've had as my word of the year for the past several years-- Still Waters. I thought I had written a blog post about this, but I couldn't find it to link so I'll have to have another draft of posts to publish and explain my Still Waters!!

I bought this one to put on the small settee that I have in front of our bed in our bedroom. I love this verse so much!! I think it applies to my life right now!! 

Here are some other things in Altar'd State that I really like. By the way, their clothes are just a little too "junior" for me at the age of 54. Really cute clothes, but not for someone my age!!




There are so many more. I recommend going to their website and seeing what you can find!!
