make-believe: wave watching.

May 31, 2012

i’ve always had something of an overly active imagination. in that spirit, a new series imagining accompaniments for favorite pastimes. not saying i need any of these things, but sometimes it’s fun to imagine them. if you’ll indulge, i’m playing at make-believe.

today, accompaniments for a white-hot summer day spent wave watching. toes in sand, book in hand, sun glinting off the water.

    I can relate – constantly imagining what I would put in my dream kitchen. I guess we all play a little at make-believe – it would explain why Pinterest is all the rage!

    What a beautiful collection! I love the idea of wave watching. Although admittedly I hate feeling of sand between my toes so if I could sit up on a grassy hill and wave watch all the better. The towel is going on my wish list. Thanks for all the inspiration Erin as always.

    Erin! I just discovered your blog and I'm instantly crushed out on it. It's so relaxing to look at. I love your take on living in a small space, your bits of cooking, and your eyes on the world. I used to live in Bklyn and I miss that city. Right now I'm in LA, so… this wave-watching collection is hitting the sweet spot today. Love your work!
