my week in objects (mostly).

April 13, 2012

five little things that made my week.

1. this redbud branch.
construction sign {because i love the way the flowers are all clustered together and that this one in particular really wanted to splash some color on the sidewalk}.

2. these baby toes.
toes {because they belong to the sweetest niece any girl could ask for}.

3. this counter scene.
counter {because yesterday was national grilled cheese day and what better place to celebrate than in the local diner where no other patron is younger than sixty and everyone’s lived in the neighborhood at least that long}.

4. these tights.
tights {because they’re perfect for spring. and now, they’re even on sale}.

5. these tiny herbs.
herbs {because they’re still alive after a weekend away. triumph}.

what little something made your week?

other things:
these shots of new yorkers.
these goddess sandals. want.
this kickstarter project. i took piano lessons with one of the directors.
these matchbooks. i have a thing for them lately. this roundup was perfect.
these interview tips.

    This post makes me soooooo happy! Yes! National Grilled Cheese Day! Last night i grilled myself a gouda, cheddar, and cantal on dark rye. It. was. yummy! I love the blossoms in your photo. They're gorgeous. I've seen whole driveways and sidewalks decorated with them all week. And i adore your tights. Very chic. And best of all, those adorable baby toes. How sweet are those!? 😀
