my week in objects (mostly).

May 25, 2018

five little things that made my week.  

1. these chive blossoms.

{and the ridiculous distraction they were for my kids this week.}

2. this rhubarb jam.

{and the decision to make a very quick jarful right before bedtime.}

3. this cord.

{for making a wonky kitchen a little less so.}

4. this primed footstool.

{and getting around to projects ten years in the making.}

5. this quilt-turned-curtain. 

{anything to get these guys to sleep past five. yes, am.}

other things:

sign here. donate here.

quite possibly the very best rugs.

these are books, works of the imagination.

he was constantly teaching you how to appreciate things.

slowly but surely.

must plan escape. pronto.

forever bracelets.

    I cannot imagine wearing a bracelet that I could not remove. I think it would be obnoxious and sometimes painful. Then again, I am easily bothered by my watch and other stuff hanging out on my wrists, so I suppose I’m not the target audience. If having a non-removable bracelet on your wrist sounds like a good time to you, I’d love to hear why.

      Ha! I love the idea of a permanent bracelet (nothing a pair of wire cutters couldn’t fix anyway), but I’m not bothered by bracelets generally! Certainly not something to try if you are 😉

    Hi! Can you post the jam recipe? I picked some up at the farmers market but forgot to save the recipe you posted in your story!

      Really not a recipe! Just sugar and rhubarb and water, all eyed out. I’d do a quick google search if you’ve never made it before and see what kind of measurements folks might have! x!
