Each Wednesday I post about some sort of treasure I found during the past week. It might be thrifted or found on a walk or whispered in my ear or discovered on a dark shelf in the basement. Something. Anything that makes me feel lucky and thankful. It doesn’t necessarily have to make its way home with me – it just has to be noticed. The idea is for it to cost very little and feel very big. After all, this isn’t about acquiring new things; it is about paying better attention to the world around me.
If you discovered a treasure this week (a new friend, a snow fairy, a fancy dish at the thrift store, a bird’s nest) please do share it, as well as any links, in the comments section below.
These Italian canisters with wooden lids came from The Clawfoot Tub, a beautiful design and home wares shop in our downtown. A good friend of mine gave me a gift certificate a few months ago, and I’ve been itching to visit. After taking it all in, these nicely rounded jars with painted wooden lids called to me.
Really, the true treasure was my slow pre-shop breakfast with lovely Ariana. We ate eggs and crepes and talked about colors and broken cars and beautiful children.
