five little things that made my week.Ā 

1. this drying chamomile.

{for coming right along.}

2. this clothespin.

{for keeping the pacifier from falling on the floor every other minute.}

3. this magazine for preschoolers.

{for being so cheery.}

4. this container.

{for making me get slightly better about picking up pastries in little paper baggies on my way to the office.}

5. these eyelashes.
{and every other bit of this squish.}

other things:

hello, zero-waste boba!Ā 

a painterly pouch.

prettiest plant shops in the world.

more reading, less mindless scrolling.

    One of my hobbies is painting, so I had to click on “a painterly pouch” right away. It’s beautiful, and what a great way to use up an old drop cloth. I make stationery and gift tags and things like that out of my old paintings.

    I have a small reader plea: I love love love all of the wonderful links you always put together, but would it be possible to make sure that they all open in a new tab? I find that often it’s a mish-mash and I end up accidentally losing your post window before I’m done with the links! It’s such a small thing, but it makes a huge difference to the reading experience.

    I finally made the switch to stainless straws this week and am loving them! Not a boba fan, but I would love that giant one for thick smoothies šŸ™‚

    Hi Erin,
    I enjoy your blog and appreciate the new children’s magazine recommendation. Have you heard about Illustoria (out of Oakland)? I just ran across a reference to it a couple of weeks ago, and have been meaning to track down a copy; the new issue looks gorgeous:

    Have a great week!
