Favorite small things: May 2023. Words only where necessary.
A Metal Straw
Have you tried these? The sensation is exhilarating. They make a cold drink even colder.
A Yellow Beak
A Fiery Sun
A Pair of Flower Earrings
Love this designer who makes new pieces from vintage jewelry.
A Yoga Session with Goats
Totes Goat Yoga. That’s me snuggling with a goat. I couldn’t really pay attention to the yoga because I just wanted to play with the goats. Unfortunately, a goat didn’t jump on my back.
A Bath for an Air Plant
The Botanical Garden told us to mist him, but really what he needed was a weekly bath. A half-hour weekly soak in a tub has multiplied his leaves in just a few weeks. Just be sure not to submerge his roots and to fully dry him off with a paper towel before placing him back in his pot.
A Hot Pink Juicy Sweatsuit
Yes, I’m more than middle age. Yes, this has Juicy written on the posterior. Yes, I wear both top and bottom together. Yes, I go out in public wearing it. And yes, it’s a crop top. And yes, this does make me feel great, thank you.
A Music Box
I drove one hour to pick up this Thorens piano music box after winning it for $6 at auction. When I got it into the car, I opened it, and it’s music was so peaceful, so slow, maybe a little slower than it was 80 years ago, and it transported me to somewhere not here. It sold in three days, and even though it was my most profitable flip so far, it hurt a little to let her go.
That’s all for May, and that marks one year since I’ve been noting favorite small things.
