my week in objects (mostly).

May 22, 2015

five little things that made my week.

1. these pots.
pots {because sometimes the light’s just right.}

2. these ice cubes.
ice cube {because i’m not a huge ice girl, but ’tis the season for a little refreshment. and because i’ve been pouring the dregs of morning coffee over ice and calling it fancy. only me?}

3. this morning light.
light {for reminding me of this time last year, minus the crib.}

4. these tiny swim trunks.
watermelons {because we’re headed to the beach for memorial day. and every once in a while, you gotta go for pink.}

5. these tiny leftovers.
flowers {because they stuck around from last week.}

other things:
faye’s amazing babysitter started a blog: it’s all babies and beauty and awesome.
(and she nailed baby essentials.)

may milk moon!
filtered water on the go.
the key to a living wage for garment workers.
magic in a cup?
someone has a first birthday v. v. soon.
emails for breakfast via tradlands.

      Hmm…I don't have a plant that I call silver falls, but maybe you're asking about the one that I call "string of hearts"? I love those tiny silvery leaves!

    Happy weekend! Would you be willing to do a roundup of grownup/kid swimsuits that are ethically made?

    Erin! You're so sweet to share my kumquat whiskey sours. I adore your blog (and your sister, brother-in-law, nephew and nanny!) and am so humbled to have been included in your round up. I operate out of a tiny kitchen not too far from you in Park Slope, and would love to meet you and your sweet family if you're ever in the neighborhood.

    PS: Those ice cubes are also making MY week! I recently purchased a tray and have been enjoying yummy pour-over coffee in the mornings before work. Doesn't get much better than that.

    so – pour your left-over coffee in the cube tray. freeze. put a cube or two in a glass. then, pour more coffee over a coffee ice-cube. you will not water your coffee down!
