Does anyone remember going to summer camp? My mom used to have me fill out postcards to family members with the address and stamps before I even left so that my letters to home were ready to go. Honestly, it’s one of my fondest memories of childhood, sitting on a rock somewhere with my little stationary set and writing my mom all about how I had to do dishes in the cafeteria and we sang songs around the campfire. The letters to my mom were a habit that stuck with me through all of my journeys (through school and beyond) and there is still nothing quite like receiving a letter from abroad, don’t you agree?
Alexandra Ferguson has created the throw pillow equivalent to the postcard from abroad. Each of her handcrafted pillows convey a message or greeting that sails straight to the heart of the matter and reminds us of exactly what we need to be reminded of. The mantra of Alexandra Ferguson is: Thoughts Become Words, Words Become Actions, Actions Become Habit, Habit Becomes Destiny. This philosophy is the sort of thing that travels with you, no matter where you’re headed. And what better way to keep yourself on track than by placing your favorite phrases right where you rest your bones. The “Be Nice” pillow is a great way to keep your home the perfect respite from the chaos that can sometimes derail us. Plus, it’s the perfect advice for your daily travels, wouldn’t you say? Indeed.
