my week in objects (mostly).

June 15, 2012

five little things that made my week.

1. this returned envelope.
letter {and many others. because we had mail every day}.

2. this lemon cake.

lemoncake {because i ate it for breakfast. cake for breakfast every day}.

3. this contact paper.
contact {because sometimes you simply can’t afford to replace the nasty cabinet in your bathroom, and so you line it with fresh white contact paper even if it makes you cringe}.

4. this pretty bowl.

linden {because i didn’t let it wreck my week. it was linden syrup in the making. i neglected it, but mold didn’t. the whole thing had to be dumped. win some, lose some. at least i saved some for tea}.

5. this book.

wild {because you should all go read it, too. then we can chat}.

other things:
these favorite guys, together.
on collecting all that pretty linden.
these dresses were everywhere this week. but that first one really is spectacular.
an important (and speedy) read.
equally important, and touching.

    That book is on my bedside table, waiting to be cracked open. If you plan to do kind of an online book chat about it, I'd love to talk about it with you and others. Have a great weekend!

    The picture of that envelope made me really happy for some reason. Also, the book has officially gone onto my 'to read' list. I've been wanting to find another memoir to read for so long!! šŸ˜€ Rhi xx

    Wild is amazing! I love Dear Sugar/Cheryl Strayed. So glad her work is getting so much attention lately.

    Yesss! Cheryl Strayed!!! I just read about this memoir in Oprah's Book Club 2.0. Looking forward to that read, as well.

    Getting those cards in the mail every day is the best!

    Was the lemon cake a homemade affair? If so, may I request the recipe? My breakfasts would like to share in the excitement.
