my week in objects (mostly).

January 8, 2016

five little things that made my week. 

1. these furry animals. animals_reading_my_tea_leaves_IMG_2553{because here’s to a little makeshift “decorating.”}

2. this tiny harmonica. harmonica_reading_my_tea_leaves_IMG_2553 {because faye is totally obsessed.}

3.  this rug.
{because it came just before the holidays and it’s been the best thing for faye to get snuggly on, and for me to stop worrying so much about our lunatic neighbor.}

4. this calendar
calendar_reading_my_tea_leaves_IMG_2553{because it’s filling up with exciting things.}

5. this photo strip.
{because even though poor faye is miserable in two of four photos, and james can hardly been seen through glasses, and i’m all kinds of wonky. i just love it.}

other things:
casseroles for cold nights. (we just made this. holy cheese.)
bravery, defined.
no words minced.
toddler interview.
foods that double as cleaning products.
buy me once shopping.
emma watson’s book club.
my kind of photo bomb.
reindeer migration.

me in other places:
marie kondo meets brooklyn. (ha!)

upcoming book events: (EEEE!) in case you want to mark your calendars, i’m doing two nearby book readings next week to celebrate my book launch. details on my book page!

    I really enjoyed all your posts this week as I implement some of the same things into my own life (adjusted to fit, of course!) Love that you linked up to the Buy Me Once website – I can see that being a great resource! Thanks and enjoy the weekend. 🙂

    Dear Erin, I’m so glad that you enjoyed the buymeonce concept. Thank you so much for helping to spread the word. I would love to know your thoughts on any products you think might be added to the collection. It seems we have a shared purpose.
    All the very best,
