Dear Photo Diary, I decorate my life. Flowers on the table, flowers in every bush outdoors. Wood anemones. The pile of vintage postal stamps was out on my desk again, as I finished my postcards. They are sorted, re-sorted, loved.
My white needle holder stands guard in the book shelf, because I now use a tiny needle pillow on the living room table more frequently. I embroidery at night, or in the morning when I have my coffee. Or I write, like last week, when I was at cafés half of the time. Writing.
Mom thrifted a whole roll of vintage book paper. Never even used. The best part is the yellowed owl label. Owls fly my way constantly these days. I’m thinking I need to tell friends and family to stop buying me owls. Maybe I will.
For now I drink coffee, and journal. Or knit. And every time I bring out my green smiling cup, I smile.
These are a few of my favorite things. What things do you surround yourself with that makes you smile?
