As you may see from my list of Things I Love, I've been on a bit of a binge lately. I'm feeling a welcome change a-coming and it expresses itself through new food, new adventures, new adornments, &c. (though as I reflected on last year's gift guide, I am also quite the same.)
May my list lead you down some enchanting rabbit holes!

I may have a habit of vintage tins. I like to say I am NOT a collector, but I do fancy myself a gatherer. I love tins for hauling art supplies, soft things like pastels, and tiny messy things like pen nibs. And they make wonderful alternative sketchbooks. They fit nicely into my Sendak and pouches. And of course, I love a good Flea Market find — though Etsy and Ebay are great resources if you are patient!
Silas is learning about Bonsai's for a Homeschool project and he got us all into it. Our garden, artist friend Kai, brought a bag of Bonsai-able trees for Silas, including: Azalea, Boxwood, Pines, Juniper, and Hercules Club. The places to look, he said, are parking lots and mowed areas where the roots are biggened as the tops are shorn! Abundance everywhere, for those who seek it!
I will never stop gathering books. Unread stacks surround me, but also, many are read and scribbled and delighted in. (PS: Padraig O'Tauma's book has been long preordered - check.)
I stopped at my favourite Philadelphia shop, Vagabond, and found The Simple Folk linen dress (among other things)! So cozy, layerable, pocketed, swishy, and loooong. I have to tie it in a knot to bike and hike with it — but yay! I love it so.
