my week in objects (mostly).

September 11, 2015

five little things that made my week.

1. this gauzy curtain.
curtains {because some extra yardage thrown over the curtain rod is counting as curtain enough for me these days.}

2. this bowl of plums.
plums {for turning into something (even more) sweet.}

3. this reorganized shelf.
pillow cases {because things had gotten a little out of control.}

4. this footstool.
stool {because faye’s been using it as a tiny table all week. #lifeinatinyapartment}

5. these dirty wheels.
skateboard {for offering a nice distraction.}

other things:
one-stop shopping i can get behind.
my ten-year-old heart just skipped a beat.
feeling like i need a little smudge.
me space.
comment commentary.
book cover options.
their ceiling is our stage. (cried lauging.)

    Hi Erin! I love your blog. I've been so inspired to simplify and go green since stopping by here every day. Would love to listen to the playlists you listened to on the way to Maine, and know about your favorite spots in the city.

    Would love an update on your longboarding adventures! I got myself an Arbor board this summer and it has been great fun.

    Love those little toes! What diaper cover are you guys using? Your set up looks so trim! We are in gmd prefolds with wool covers and having to always size way up in clothes! Would love to hear your thoughts/suggestions on the topic if you have the time!

      We use a set of hand-me-down Real Nappies from my sister and have one of these ones. It's a Bummies cover. Both of worked well for us—though I recommend getting a darker color for a little guy who's on the go. The white covers were great for Faye until she started moving around a lot and the one we have has gotten really dirty!

      And yes! The diaper bum is huge—though I haven't really size up per se!

      Thank you! I never came across Real Nappies back when I was researching our options. They have a 6-pack of covers on sale right now for 40 bucks-Get out! Thanks for the tip. Do you guys just trifold the nappy in these covers? And is Faye in the 6-18mo size or 18+?
