my week in objects (mostly).

March 2, 2012

1. this coffee.
morning coffee
{and two others like it. because it was made just right. just for me}.

2. this dying flower.
ombre ranunculus
{because it’s nice to know there’s beauty in decay}.

3. this leather guitar pick.
leather guitar pick
T{because in a tiny apartment, it’s important that things that get left everywhere are nice to look at, too}

4. these luggage tags.
save the dates
{because they let our friends and family know when we’re getting married. we’re getting married. in august}.

5. this love letter to brooklyn.
love letter to brooklyn
{because i’m a sucker for love letters, especially on city walls}.

what about you?

postscript: that felt good. if you’ve been around these leaves for awhile you know this is a series i’d abandoned. there are some things that are not congruous with an hour++ commute to work and back each day, and photographing the mundane details of a week are one of them. but now that i have the chance, i think i’d like to be back at it. it’s a series i started back when i first began my blog and i’m not sure if it’s tired or played out, but i’m trying hard to remember the reason why i began it in the first place and go with that. gut instincts.

other things:
the women of tend are back at it. glad.
more about the love letter to brooklyn.
lovely photos of a sweet evening i caught the tail end of.
i’d like to dress like this. always.

    I'm so glad that you're back at this post!

    Your blog (and a few others) inspired me to start recording weekly joys about a year ago. (Today's is here:( I find it makes me notice things I normally might take for granted. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Yea!!! "My week in objects" has always been one of my favorite parts of your blog. It helps me to look for the objects or events in my week that have been uplifting. For me this week it would be a yoga mat, Downtown Abby on DVD, a cute Cavalier puppy, The English Home magazine, and a crochet hook.
