Pillow Crazy

Hi friends,
Thank you so much for joining me today.

I feel like I should start today's post with a confession:
"Hi, my name is Megan. I am obsessed with pillows. I have a pillow fetish. Well, not that kind of fetish, I just happen to love decorating with pillows. And I like to spice it up so that means swapping out the pillows occasionally, well, I mean a lot!"

It's true. I do love pillows! I probably think about pillows entirely too much. I check out new pillows online at my favorite stores and in decorating magazines. Whenever I watch HGTV, I'm always searching for pillow inspiration. I'm embarassed to show you my pillow collection in my attic. My old pillows have to go somewhere, right? Occasionally, the old pillows get recycled and are invited to rejoin our living quarters once again. Sadly, some pillows stay in the attic until they finally get to be recycled as the pillow form for a new pillow covering. That's how I'm trying to contain my love of pillows now- just purchasing a pillow covering and then reusing an old pillow. Pottery Barn is awesome for selling pillow coverings- they're far less expensive than buying a fully formed pillow with insides. I'm also buying fabric and making my own pillows too.

Having said entirely too much on the topic of pillows, I just had to share a few new pillow friends that joined The Brew Crew household this week to help us welcome summer.

Check out these beauties:

I am liking the casualness of the pillows. They're giving off a very summery vibe. I think they're perfect for summer. They're very soft- great for laying on while curling up with a book or for laying your head on while watching a movie. For fall, I'll probably bring down warmer pillows from the attic. What do you think?

Dear Friends,
On a more serious note, I need your prayers. My mom is having surgery on Monday, June 25, and she needs your prayers. If you are a praying person, please pray for Deborah and her upcoming surgery. My mom is a very special person in my life and I truly appreciate your thoughts and prayers. I believe in the power of uplifting each other in prayers.

Here is my mom, daughter, and I before we saw the muscial Mary Poppins

Here's a prayer I came across:
“God the Father, have mercy on Deborah. God the Son, have mercy on Deborah. God the Holy Spirit, grant Deborah peace. Bless Deborah, Your beloved child, as she enters surgery, so that, no matter what happens, she is secure in Your love. Comfort all who wait for news of Deborah’s surgery, and remind them they are not alone in You. Amen.”

I welcome you to share your needs for prayer with me and I would be honored to add you to my prayer list.
Thank you and God Bless YOU-
