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.
Today's beauty is a bright, spring gold and green original Vera Neumann. As I was pressing it, with slow and steady iron sweeps, I gradually fell more and more in love. (I really did press it! I think it just likes to be creased.) There is something about the punchy pattern combined with its silky softness that makes me feel at ease. Nanny totally busted this one out in the springtime.
It was made in Japan with hand rolled edging.
A real gem.
