my week in objects (mostly).

May 26, 2017

five little things that made my week.Ā 

1. these clogs.Ā 

{and for two rain-free days to wear them on.}

2. this vanilla-colored scene.
{because sometimes you toss your sweater and turn around and see a little poetry.}

3. this fresh chamomile.

{because i mostly let it languish in my fridge, but not totally.}

4. these pots.

{newly planted with seeds. not sure they’ll get enough light, but we’re giving it a shot anyway.}

5. this purple scooter.

{because we found a sidewalk scooter with a tiny scribbled “for free” sign and replaced what was broken with purple, as requested. plus triangle decals.}

other things:

the children all dutifully returned from whatever dangerous thing they were doing.

time for a veggie burger pilgrimage.

a summer to-do list.

compost dinner.

package free shop.

everyday, anytime, anywhere.

    Question, how do you like the clogs? I’ve been wanting a pair for awhile and might pull the trigger since this brand has a few nice styles! Also, their website says they have a wide fit, have you found that to be true? Thanks!

      Love them! Can’t say I’ve noticed their width either way!

    Try growing chamomile! In my experience it grows like a weed, even in very small containers, and then you can cut some when you want to use it and enjoy the flowers rest of the time.

    I love your feed for it’s calm, monochrome look. But I’m so glad to know there is room for a purple scooter. Both in your real life and your online life.

    I am obsessed with that forest kindergarten idea. Can we start a forest workplace?! Also, so pumped for sweet summertime. <3

    We have the same scooter (a hand-me-down) and if my 4-year-old knew we could replace the colorful parts, it would soon be red from top to bottom. I love how little kids experiment (obsess) with favorite colors.

    My little guy got that scooter when he turned 1 and still loves it now that he’s 4. šŸ™‚
