my week in objects (mostly).

April 12, 2013

five little things that made my week.

1. this lace curtain.
lace curtain at prime meats {because someday all my curtains will be so dainty}.

2. these daffodils.
bridal crown daffodils {because i planted them in reused potting soil, and this week, blooms}.

3. these white magnolia blossoms.
white magnolia blossoms {because it seemed like every restaurant and shop in the neighborhood had their own set of branches}.

4. these dress shirts.
shirts1309 {because they’re vestiges from james’s hockey coaching days, and now they’re outta here}.

5. this white tulip.
open tulip {because i don’t mind one bit that three out of my five objects are flowers}.

other things:
advice to little girls. brought back to life by maria.
the east village: mad men vs. reality.
vintage seed packet stamps.
forget sneakers, i want these.
or maybe these and these.
webbys!: vote here.
this is delightful and kooky.
i was captivated by this renovation this week.
i really want to see this.

things by me in other places:
miracle tea. 
mudroom hooks.

    every time I got to the post-office I end up creating some inordinately complicate situation (I'm sure the people that work there are like "no! not this chick again!" every time I walk in) Those Seed Packet stamps will make whatever I'm sending look so effortless "oh this? just a little something I dropped in the mail".

      oh gosh, and "Eyes As Big As Plates" is wonderful. It reminds me just a little bit of Andy Goldsworthy. Thanks for sharing, Erin!

    Those oxfords are adorable! The stamp collection is very unique, too, and I enjoyed the mudroom hooks post. Have a great weekend, Erin!

    Eyes as Big as Plates…WOW. Thanks for linking. That is incredible. I spent almost a year in Norway a while back, and the photographs really capture the unique qualities of Norwegians–hardy, whimsical, wise, close to the earth…

    I don't mind that three of the five are flowers either. So springy in a much-needed way.

    Beautiful photos! I love lace curtains…there's something so dainty and grown-up about them.

    hey erin! i found your blog through a link and really like it!

    and i really like lace curtains too. however it's really hard to find good quality lace curtains around my area. you could find some at ikea of course but it really takes some luck to score one that's one of a kind and made well!

      I know it! I think antiques are the way to go. The quest continues! (Thanks for stopping by)!

    super random request:

    I am new to the world of loose leafed tea…would you consider a post that would be sort of a beginner's guide?

      Consider it done! Eventually!
