my week in objects (mostly).

August 7, 2009
five little things that made my week.*
 
*special this week: a little collection of things from our lovely apartment that have brightened my days, not only this week, but every week, for all the weeks that we have lived here.
 
1. the garden.garden
{because our landlord maintains it in beautiful shades of white and purple. and its height is perfectly unruly}.
 
2. our front door.frontdoor
{because if there’s a prettier door to come home to, i’ve yet to find it}.
 
3. little gifts.flowers
{sometimes flowers, clipped from the garden and brought inside by our landlord. sometimes a little bowl of chocolates. the perfect touch of sweetness after a long day}.
 
4. a stained glass window.stainedglass
{because passing it on my way to bring out the recycling makes the task so much more enjoyable}.
 
5. the banana tree.banana
{because its resiliency each season reminds me to stay tough}.
 
what little something made your week?
 
{also being made blog of week over at naturally nina…thanks, nina}!

    Oh, that door..! And I see why for all those reasons (and not just the door – heh), you'll miss your place in NC… freshly-cut flowers and chocolates? Wow. Maybe James will have to step up and take over those duties in the new place. I can't wait to see photos of the apartment in RI – I'm sure it'll be great!

    You have such a beautiful place in Wilmington, Erin! It makes me think about moving to NC at some point! Everything just seems so much prettier down there. I wish you all the best with your move. Though it's so sad to leave your gorgeous place, you will always have the memory of living in such glory! Have a lovely weekend!

    What a great place. I can see why you are sad to leave it, that door alone is reason enough to rent that place.
    But now on to new beginnings, friend!

    What a gorgeous place. You will be so resilient and make your new space positively lovely, I am sure. Wishing you a wonderful weekend. My week is being made by Don whisking me away to Greenville, SC tonight and by Bella's snuggling more than ever with me this week because she seems to be a little more cuddly when she is teething. (poor thing) xoxo

    Aw, it's tough to leave a place you adore – especially if you have a nice landlord to boot!

    Getting more work made my week. It's not a fun thing, but it's something I really needed. Congrats on being blog of the week on Nina's lovely blog 🙂

    No wonder you're sad to leave this place! It looks just lovely. What a nice little hommage to your last home.

    I hope you're able to find loveliness in your new place, too!

    LOVE the purple and white unruly garden! Your door is wonderful too. Have you ever been to San Miguel de Allende? There are so many lovely doors there. My week was made by a visit to the SFMOMA rooftop garden, I even like the feel of the garden walls…
