my week in objects (mostly).

August 27, 2010
1. these pansies.pansies
{because they were collected by three year olds in my last few days on the farm}.
2. this salty chocolate.chocolate
{because as james would say, “it’s all willy wonka”}.
3. these muffins.muffins
{because my homecoming has meant finding a replacement for the blueberry muffin i ate every single morning on the farm. and because two coffee cups are better than one}.
4. this pot of succulents.succulents
{because i rescued them from the neighbors’ wall. say a little wish that they survive}.
5. this little card.emerson
{because, sometimes i need a reminder}.
what little something made your week?
ps. james and i leave tomorrow afternoon for a little impromptu trip up the coast. we’re not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet.

    Those pansies are precious.

    A new camera that takes tiny polaroids made my week, I would like to take one for each day if the film was free. 🙂

    How wonderful is that bouquet?! So cute that they were collected by little ones. The chocolate and muffins look so yummy! Love that quote and I hope your trip blesses you with all of that and more. xo
    (Time with friends, a city drive and flowers from my love, made my week.)

    i bought a bar of that chocolate because i loved the label – love the chocolate, too. the pansies are so dear and do signify 'think of me'. enjoy your weekend!

    Wonderful post (as usual).

    I love the Emerson quote, but haven't seen that card before. Where can I find it?

    great flowers! I bought a very pretty dress this weekend, that sort of made my week

  • Reply Sweet Ronit August 29, 2010 at 7:05 pm

    Love the shot of the pansies!

    Picking some sunflowers that have recently bloomed right outside my door made my week.

    maine perhaps?! it is rather perfect weather right now.

    So much fun stuff. Pansies! I've seen salt + chocolate many times, but never salt & pepper + chocolate. I'm intrigued. Chris deciding not to work on Sunday made my week.

    i love that card!! we all need a reminder sometimes, and ones that come packaged so wonderfully are the best kind!!!

    Your "becauses" added so much more depth to the images!

  • Reply knack August 31, 2010 at 1:33 pm

    what a beautiful week! how special those sweet little pansies are…and the two coffee cups…..precious!

    hope you all had an amazing getaway together….enjoying these last days of summer!
