my week in objects (mostly).


1. these paperwhite leaves.
{because they shot right up while we were away and soon: flowers!}.

2. this chocolate.
dandelion chocolate
{because san francisco cousins bring the best christmas loot}.

3. this tiny cord.
tiny cord
{because sometimes a girl needs to listen to gregorian chants on spotify all day long, and sometimes she needs it to come through her radio speakers}.

4. this verbena candle.
{because moms know best}.

5. this coffee foam.
{because our stove-top steamer must have been lonely while we were away}.

other things:
this sweet blog.
i finally read this. and liked it.
a year in flowers.

  3. We grew paperwhites in our window when we lived in our 388-sq-foot condo on Capitol Hill. I loved them.

  4. I have to try growing some paperwhites, they seem like such a nice bright spot in the winter!

  5. I have to search for a stove top milk steamer now. looks like a perfect treat.

    have a lovely weekend!

  6. Milk foam is the best thing ever!

    Happy weekend!

  7. right. Very interesting. Who knows what is in store for us. Sometimes I think about how fast the past 10 years have gone. But then think about ALL that has gone on during those years, and then think, WOW!
    The mind so hard to figure. :)

  8. The mind is so hard to figure. :)

  9. A lovely list, paper whites and coffee foam - hard to beat. Glad I discovered your blog. xo!

  10. Oh yum, that candle looks absolutely amazing. I may be slightly obsessed with candles though! Personally, I think you can never have to many.
    xo, Maria

  11. First, your beautiful chocolate bar reminds me that I need to get myself down to Dandelion on Valencia soon. Second, I admire your plug-in technology. I'm still popping cassette tapes to listen to my Gregorian chants (while doing my calligraphy).

    Lovely place you've got here. Happy New Year!

    1. they're so calming, aren't they? i focus so much better when i listen to them!

  12. All gorgeous pictures! I wish I had your eye!

  13. Erin, any particular favourite Gregorian chants?

    1. ha! wish i was discerning, but i just type in gregorian chants to spotify and tune out (or in?)!

  14. Beautiful, every little love you share with us. And I so adore those bulbs in the winter. They send out hope, somehow, that spring will return, really, some day :-)

    Have a great weekend! xx

    1. yes. my thoughts exactly. (and thank you).

  15. Do you like your stove-top steamer? We have been contemplating one but aren't sure how much we'd use it, etc.

  16. That foam is awesome! I wish I could make soymilk do that :/


  17. Mmmm! Chocolate! Paperwhites are divine. Spring will come soon. :)

  18. I read The Art of Fielding while I was on Christmas vacation and loved it! I read it so quickly, I practically drank it down, and wanted more!

  19. The first picture in particular makes me want to get a plant for my apartment. I always walk by florists' shops and feel tempted to buy a vase and a bouquet of flowers or a small plant, because then it would brighten up my studio apartment a little bit.

  20. Oh my God! I can't believe this! Madagascar is where i'm from :) i'm so proud that a pretty fancy chocolate gives a credit to our product and that you actually like it.
    Love from MDG.
