my week in objects (mostly).

April 27, 2012

five little things that made my week.

1. this lemon water.lemonwater {because i zested one too many lemons and instead of putting it to waste, i got water that tastes like july}.

3. this nail.

curtain tieback

{because i was holding out for a more stately curtain tie, but reminded myself, again, that simple does the trick}.

3. these geraniums.

{because they stopped flowering inside, so i thought i’d give them a little push on the sill. their just sitting up there hatched another idea. more soon}.

4. this cup of tea with a friend.

{because sometimes tea on someone else’s couch provides just the shift of perspective you need}.

5. this plate of crumbs.
crumbs {because i love how each slice eaten reveals a little more of this fellow on his bicycle. she’s genius, that may luk}.

what little something made your week?

other things:
these photographs show the new york of my grandparents’.
{the main database is temporarily down, due to history lovers everywhere overwhelming the system. amazing}.
incredible pear blossoms.
these have me hankering to head west.

    that plate is awesome

    I did something similar with my leftover lemons the other night. And then I got crazy and added mint too! It was amazing the day of – the next day it was quite strong and almost bitter. So you know

    I love the window view in the background of the first photo. It reminds me of an apartment I rented while visiting Europe a few summers ago. Brings back so many memories – Thank you!

    the moisture clinging to the glass in the first photo looks as much like July as it tasted.

    and thanks for sharing the pear blossoms – I actually thought of you and your farm days when I was out there!
