my week in objects (mostly).

June 24, 2011

five little things that made my week.

1. these fake flowers.
fakeflowers {because they were displayed utterly unironically in our hotel room in jersey. and i liked that}.

2. this newspaper.
nytimes {because even though it’s appeared on this list before, this week i read it sitting barefoot in brooklyn bridge park}.

3. these lights.
view {because every night they look different. and every night i’m as happy to see them}.

4. this turtle.
turtle {because james spotted her laying her nest. proof that nature perseveres in the big city}.

5. this strawberry amuse-bouche.
strawberry {because even though the meal that followed wasn’t stellar, the sweetness of this little treat still lingered}.

what little something made your week?

    I like your optimism.

    My week was made by a pretty perfect afternoon — working off-site and outside in a park with ice cream and then following this work and ice cream in a quiet little wine bar.

    Loved this post! It's really so interesting when you start noticing, and see that there is actually beauty in NJ and NY. I'm from here so since I live in it, I don't notice it as often.
