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.
This was one of my Nanny's necklaces.
My wise Aunt recently said that it just dawned on her that Nanny is somewhere in love with how close she is holding me. I have so many confusing, conflicting thoughts and ideas about death, but thinking about her in this way brings me comfort.
