Pinterest project- places we love

May 4, 2012 § 1 Comment

Hearts and maps go together so well, speaking wordlessly of the places you love or that have significance to you. There are tons of happy DIY projects with maps on pinterest. See here and here. So I got a US atlas and world atlas at Goodwill, about $2, cut out hearts of our places of birth and places we’ve lived, and put together a shadow box using one I’ve had stashed forever and a bit of blue painted artboard. It is personal and colorful and goes beautifully in a memory filled gallery.

It also makes a terrific gift!

 

Mail fun

April 26, 2012 § 1 Comment

Mail is my favorite. Sending is the best, but receiving is pretty great too. I love old fashioned letters and hand wrapped goodies and postcards made of cereal boxes. I love the process of getting the mail from the box and sorting it and putting each bit in its place. I even love our grumpy and slow post office.

I thought this was a box of breath mints. But it was this little old tin…

…full of lovely old buttons! What a perfect surprise, thank you friend!

Real mail is completely wonderful; a way to send someone tangible love without having to buy a plane ticket. It is very personal to send and heartwarming to receive. Go drop a postcard in the mail and make someone’s day!

A little while ago I found this packaged in my mailbox. Could it be? A paper camera?

We put it together…

And now to try it! How long does one expose film through a pinhole shutter? I’m excited.

Box of beauty

Found in a box from Italy today, love from a friend I cherish.  Such richness! That’s a quote from Little Women. It is awesomeness colored green and the biggest thing I’ve ever picked up from the post office.

And to give you some sense of scale:

Its called a damigiana or demijohn.

Where Am I?
