Since hanging the home office wall I shared with you a while ago, I've gathered many more things I love to look at. Strangely, they're all dark. Must be the time of year?! Halloween all around me?! Not that any of it is spooky—again it's a collection of presents from friends from their travels (Shane from India, Ayesha from Turkey, my dear friend from California, my textile teacher from China), pretty postcards from my shopping trips (from Ted Muehling and Ochre), a little pouch from Habu, and my favorite necklace from my friends at Confetti System. Maybe black is the new neutral, regardless of the season and application.
