my week in objects (mostly).

May 29, 2020

1. these sparkles.

sparkle | reading my tea leaves

{on these grubby fingers and everyone else’s, per the birthday kid’s request.}

2. this lock.

door lock | reading my tea leaves

{because it’s on the closet door now and not the bedroom door and everything’s suddenly much more peaceful.}

3. these roses.

rose petals | reading my tea leaves

{for offering a whole thirty minutes of distraction.}

4. this shaker.

baking soda | reading my tea leaves

{with love to my younger self for going to the trouble of making these and love to my wiser self for just sprinkling some baking soda instead.}

5. this cardboard box from a neighbor.

cardboard box | reading my tea leaves

{and the beginning of a new experiment.}

other things:

of course there are protests.

defund the police.

some things made plain.

i am sure destruction won’t work here, but neither has anything else.

making it easier for us to breathe.

in progress.

bee homes.

we look tired and worn out.

      I put mine into a mason jar – did you know you can use the lids from “shakey cheese” (as we call it) on mason jars? Throw in some essential oils and just shake it out!
