my week in objects (mostly).

May 14, 2021

1. these cosmos.

{for staying so fresh.}

2. these doorknobs.

{and denuding them.}

3. this old couch.

{and deciding what to do with her.}

4. this new-to-me rocker.

{destined for a makeover. i couldn’t help myself.}

5. this bottle.

{i’m a sucker for a spritz and this one goes to a good cause through the end of the month.}

other things:

a pre-language reality.

collective wellness, safety, and investment.

my vote for the best kids’ masks.

mother’s day flowers.

dia da espiga.

summer on my mind.

making scary phone calls.

tiny apartment puzzle.

    I have to admit I love the vintage (seeming?) webbing on the chair already! Also appreciate being a sucker for a spritz. Their offerings look so nice

    Unclear if the doorknob and plate is a pareidolia moment or if it’s the deeply ingrained Alice in Wonderland, but it made me smile!

    it has witch hazel in it
    – don’t know if it’s allowed to share a link nice to make your own
