my week in objects (mostly).

August 20, 2021

1. this fabric.

{enough for a kitchen shade plus a little extra.}

2. this tape.

{just because.}

3. the last of the ct flowers.

{for drying up just so.}

4. these crackers.

{because it’s been a snacking kind of week.}

5. this kitchen.

{for getting lots of use lately.}

other things:

people have to survive.

the cult of personal responsibility.

women corinne does not actually know.

the threat—and limitation—of mobility.

taking her boys and girls.

corn season.

    OMG this line hit hard.
    “The uniquely American issue: the idea that each of us can and should solve systemic problems on our own.”

    We are so worried about being individualists we forget how helpful we could be to one another as a collective. The constant stress put on “doing it yourself” has really caused some havoc. Yes it is good to be independent, but there’s nothing wrong with needing help.

    do you know where i might be able to find organic buckwheat hulls in bulk in brooklyn?
    i’ve been trying to find via google, and would prefer to purchase in person than through the mail.
    thanks in advance!

    I have a question, Erin! I don’t know why, but I became enamored of the brown craft paper tape and ordered some. I was thinking of using it as mailing tape on packages. It just spoke to me and I could not resist. But I’m also curious: what else can I do with it? What do you use it for! Thanks!

      It’s so lovable! Rose and I are working on something you’ll love!

        Oh good! The Rose brainstorming sessions always result in great stuff! Thanks, Erin! By the time my paper tape gets here, I’ll be ready to go!
