we're laboring away on this labor day weekend. doing little fixes to the house, sorting through stuff, combing through the stacks of what we've accumulated through this phase of life, thinking about how and why i acquired things. though it's an emotional process, it's one of my favorite tasks when i move. here's a few of the things i've unearthed.
a special grouchy person gave my artsygirl her first commission. i made a journal from the drawing. that will go to the special grouchy person (but the artsygirl will come with us).
i found this big letter a downtown and i love it.
memorabilia, ephemera, stuff. old plane tickets.
travel books. they always go.
a candleholder from one of my trips to portugal + some of my favorite rings: the colorburst from mirthmarket, button stack from my soul can dance, and the plastic one from a little shop on south congress in austin.
my haiku doodle book in progress. these little doves have become family to us this summer.
our epic failure of a summer reading program.
if i can find the tooth fairy's response to this question, i'll post it :)
crating up all my favorite books. jennifer lee's right brain business plan is a gem! definitely one that will stay in my library. highly recommend it.
this beautifully hand painted journal was a gift from manon of m comme muses when we met in montreal in march. lots of Ms in that sentence.
a super old marker drawing of a village -- maybe 10 years ago?
my favorite banner from earmark. it has been hanging above our front doorway for the last few months and it must have known that adventures were awaiting us. it will go with us to the new house. the little birdie girl in the picture will too :)
