I haven't been shopping a lot lately... I've set some ambitious savings goals for the next six months and it means I'm staying as far away from the shops as possible. Still, the change in seasons brings out new desires; a tea pot, a scented candle. Mostly, I draw from things I already own — blankets come out of closets, favourite mugs are held for a little longer, allowing the warmth infuse my fingertips as I deeply inhale.
I love when new things come in to my home to mix with old, that transformation that takes place from an object to a personal belonging. I'm never comfortable with new things until that process is complete, until I no longer see the object but an extension of myself, my home.
