my week in objects (mostly).

August 21, 2009
five little things that made my week.
1. this tea set.tea (1)
{because it meant that my mom and i could have a much needed cuppa together}.
2. this cell
{because it is the first cell phone i have owned in two years. and it’s made of all recycled materials. and it’s cute}.
3. this light box cap.light cap
{because taking down the track lighting in this apartment was the best decision i’ve ever made. well, maybe not ever, but it was a good one}.
4. this jumble of cords.wires
{because even though i hate messes, all of these cords mean that i have internet access in my home, and i’m not ashamed to admit, it makes it feel homier}.
5. this tile.tiles
{because it’s clean, and i’m so thankful that my bathroom floor is covered in this and not something else}.
so, what little something made your week?

    where is that phone from? can you add a link? it would be great to get a recycled phone when my current one dies. good job on the cleaning! my bathroom = still mildewy and grimy.

    I love the tile. Love the tea set even more 🙂 And you must tell me, what convinced you to get a cell phone after two years of not having one?

    You are so lucky you have that tile in the bathroom! Are you sure you wouldn't like to trade for some pink linoleum?

    That tea set is adorable! I love a good cuppa with my mom too! Were did you get that phone? Mine just died and I am shopping around for new options (made from recycled materials work for me). Things that made my week were the sweet potato fries I had for dinner last night, air conditioning in this hot weather, and reading Julie & Julia to the wee hours of the morning one night.

    I don't even drink tea, but that is a lovely tea set! and I love your new phone, very cute, and that tile floor is so fun (though, the picture made me a bit dizzy, haha)!

    we totally have jumbles of cords around our apartment too, we just hide them behind dressers and such… if you can't see em, they're not there, right?

    something that made my week? well, it's not tangible, but my editor texted me this morning that he thought the two big stories I wrote this week were "awesome." so that's always nice 🙂

    happy weekend!

    I really like your tiled floor! And the tea set is gorgeous.

    A little something that made my week: Going to the state fair with my sister and fawning over all the cute animals.

  • Reply Grace@PoeticHome August 21, 2009 at 9:50 pm

    Your beautiful, clean tile floor is striking!

    The jubilant smile on my husband's face as he opened his birthday present definitely made my week!

    Happy weekend to you Erin!

    your first cell in two years??? oh my gosh! you just didn't have one at all for two years?

    i am obviously in shock.

    and i obviously don't remember what my life was like pre-cellphone. haha!

    i love your tile, erin. it's so pretty. i'm glad your new place is starting to feel homier and that you have the internets back. 🙂

    hope you're having a terrific weekend.

    glad you made it and are settling in. I love providence, I remember eating at a lovely diner there…I think it was called modern diner.

  • Reply denise August 22, 2009 at 10:43 pm

    Nice floor!

    What made my week?

    1) Walking to the farmers market with Chris this morning. We ate breakfast pizzas at Frog Hollow Farm and mine had peaches on it–yum!
    2) Crossing "making homemade paneer" off of my 41 before 42 list. It was a tasty task.
    3) Finding inexpensive jeans that actually fit!

    Great cell phone! One thing that made my week is that summer is sticking around here in Alaska longer than usual & I am lovin this extra sunshine!
