my week in objects (mostly).

January 12, 2018

five little things that made my week

1. this last blossom. 

{because all the best things are fleeting.}

2. this second round of blooms.

{smaller than the first, but twice as many.}

3. less caffeine, more of this.

{a blend of rose, lemon balm, peppermint, and skullcap, blended by these guys.}

4. tulips.

{because it’s been gray and dreary and i really needed something green. bonus: the flower guy let me take ’em home plastic-wrap-free.}

5. these figs.

{because i’m going through a phase.}

other things: 

five years, twenty-five percent off.

it is still explosive, radical, and productively dangerous for women to say what we mean.

read a novel instead. noted.

craft and complexity.

as the kids say: thread and thread.

there’s no war on romance.

one bowl box-checker.

      Yes! And I would like Deneuve to take the parisian metro every day during rush hour and see what she thinks of all the “flirting” that goes on in there! Pleeeeease!

    Hey Erin, I was wondering if you could do an updated “Growing a Minimalist Wardrobe” on shoes and bags? -I keep wondering what you do about rain boots and an everyday bag. Thanks for being a constant source of inspiration!
