my week in objects (mostly).

May 24, 2013

1. this khadi towel.khadi {brought to me with love from india}.

2. this cuppow.
cuppow {because clearly i needed an adult sippy cup}.

3. this allium.
allium {for getting ready to pop}.

4. this salvia.
salvia {and the other things, for making the view out of the bathroom window so very sweet}.

5. these keys.
keys7724 {because there was a slight snafu this morning wherein james and i both left the house without keys. thank goodness for a friendly and trusting super}.

other things:
james surprised me with these. sadly, he doesn’t understand the molly mcintire references i’ve been making all week.
i’m still tempted to do this.
i’m going to connecticut this weekend to raid my mom’s rhubarb patch.
i’m admiring these v. sweet dresses.
read it in print.

things by me in other places:
marrying pots and plants.
seedlings and the aftermath.
purple sensation and friends.

And many, many thanks for all of your sweet notes about yesterday’s little announcement. It’s awfully nice to have such kind blog friends.

    Hi Erin. Do you have any tips on how to keep squirrels and birds from eating all the plants your garden? I have a tiny flat with a tiny window garden too, but in London, and the animals eat everything.

    Never be embarrassed about adult sippy cups – being able to drink without a fear of spilling is a luxury that all ages should be entitled to have!

    I feel like finding your blog was serendipitous. We have so much in common- same name, family nickname, sippy cup loving, American Girl loving, etcetera! I imagine if I had been in Madison High School, instead of Guilford, we would have been great friends! šŸ™‚
