my week in objects (mostly).

January 7, 2011

five little things that made my week.

1. this blooming amaryllis.amaryllis bloomed {because it says something awfully nice about patience}.

2. this cozy blanket.wool blanket {because we’ve wanted one of these for so long. and now it’s ours}.

3. this glass stopper.

4. these real-deal boots.
cow girl {because they’re just like the first pair i got when i was ten. only better}.

5. this new calendar.

    You've now made me long for a pair of cowboy boots! I also seem to have a vague memory of maybe having a pair of red ones as a kid…

    Amaryllises are so gorgeous! Especially in the height of winter. And that calendar is just perfect!

    I've just discovered your blog and I love the way you focus on all the day-to-loveliness in our lives. It's quite refreshing and inspiring. As a fellow M.A. student (art history), I can relate to the need to slow down a bit admist all the reading and research and writing. I look forward to reading more!

    So many lovely things! I have been coveting those blankets for well over a year! I'm so glad you have one to call your own. I'm off to window shop again.

    Beautiful! I love that calendar tea towel. I'm in dire need of a new calendar and have resolved to be more green this year – what a perfect solution!

    I really love all of these – but the first photo in particular is gorgeous. Such sharp focus!

    I think the little thing that made my week was using my new diary for the first time – picture of it is over on my blog at, but basically it's a lovely leather diary and it smells wonderful and leathery and new, and looks gorgeous!

    I recently started reading your blog, and I love the way you offer little glimpses into your life. And it's wonderful to find a fellow Providence-dweller!

    Your blanket does look quite cozy.

    What little something made my week? Watching Made in Dagenham in a quiet theater yesterday afternoon. I'm so thankful for all of the women who have fought so that we can have the rights we have today.
