A good environment is probably the result of a slow accumulation of things which you like, chosen for good reasons... They should be made to last, visually and physically, and work well in any environment. They should be a pleasure to live with.Jasper Morrison
I've shown you these before. Clay eggs. I admired them and my SIL threw them in a bag and handed them to me. They feel nice in my hand.
I have more of these jars and, god knows, many more corks available - this collection could be expanded.
Chairs and dead flowers.
Acorns symbolize a long life. We carry these in our pockets when we travel. I make my own superstitions.
The big board is covered with math right now. It could be Urdu to me...fortunately K can help with homework.
Shells from a trip to Saint Croix in 1979. Please ignore the dust on the jars. Dust circa 2004.
Soon to be soup, the French pumpkin, from the French farm nearby, rang up at $80, $300 and $3200 before the cashier found the error. Final price? $30.00.
I think I'll make pie today.
French officer's braid and good books (sensing a theme?). A concertina from my walking buddy, a bee skep from my sweetheart and a scale of unknown origin.
I always admire the clean, pared down rooms in magazines. I turn the pages thinking I'll go home and sweep the mantle of it's objects, the tables of their dishes of shells - but I never do it.
Fortunately, I have stopped purchasing new objects for decorative purposes.
But there are still a lot of shells and stones out there for me to tuck in my pocket....
