my week in objects (mostly).

June 19, 2009
five little things that made my week.
1. mimosa.mimosa
{because it’s impossibly feathery and in bloom all over town}.
2. sun tea.tea
{because it’s so refreshing on these hot, hot days}.
3. brown paper packages.snailmail
{because nothing is better than getting a little something in the mail. this one sent with care by this fellow francophile. thank you}.
4. this tea
{because james understands my need for a cup of hot tea, even in the middle of summer, and left these for me to find when i woke up}.
5. these stockinged feet.wickedwitch
{because they are just so clever}.
what little something made your week?
{p.s. a special thank you to all of the lovely women who mentioned me in their spaces this week. i’m so glad to have your support}.

    That last image is quite clever.

    My macro lens made my week even more than it normally does, I have been enjoying working on new images and it is ultimately my very favorite lens.

    Gorgeous photographs. I love receiving mail, and a brown paper package from France would be amazing! I love the stocking paint, very clever indeed 🙂

    Those witchy legs ARE so clever! I love little surprises in public spaces.

    I didn't do a whole lot this week, but I did have a really good roasted beet and goat cheese salad, as well as the best gelato I've ever had. Good food always makes things better.

    lovely as always! love the pippi lockstocking stencil and of course mimosa…i love "the week of the mimosa"–always reminds me of when i was little, picking the pinky little feathery things off my neighbor's tree and making little crowns of pinky feathery things…

    I envy your hot hot days! It is still co-o-old here. Those stockings are cute and the sun tea looks delish–is it just tea brewed in the sun?

    I lied. I stepped outside and it's suddenly in the high eighties. Chicago is one temperamental dame.

    Oh how I love sun tea!

    What made my week special? Watching my 16 month old little girl dance and clap to Flamenco music in Madrid!

    love the stockinged feet! what little something made my week? it was 4 of my little pottery pieces…my instructor took them to a salt firing for me and i wasn't quite sure how they'd turn out…they turned out so great–especially my tiny genie bottle. happy happy happy.
