my week in objects (mostly).

October 20, 2017

five little things that made my week.

1. this bit of visible mending.

{because i’m not sure if i did it “right,” but there was a hole, and now there’s not. and that feels nice.}

2. this spooky spider web. 
{precious wool batting pulled apart for the sake of a three-year-old thrilled by all things halloween.}

3. this little hoodie
{a gift for faye, and the weather cool enough for to wear it.}

4. this very high tech baby proofing technique.

{for keeping silas away from the radiator.}

5. this costume-in-progress.

{but mostly the excuse to go to an art supply store. this one!}

i need my space to be simple and meaningful.”


i thought about participating but I was just too tired.” 


i wish i had known that there were ears to hear me.”

men’s issues.

the realities that seem still to shock them.”
