Paper love

Pendant wreath

I whipped this up while indulging in Netflix the other day. I love how I can find inspiration in household items. I think one of the most fascinating things is inspiration. It's different for everyone and it comes from anywhere. For me, paper is a huge inspiration. Words on paper is one of the most beautiful things. The rich smell of an old, yellowed book. The sound of a brown bag opening. The way paper bleaches or yellows if it's exposed to sunlight. How nothing adds character to a room like a stack or row of books. How books pair well with so many other things.

A book and a scarf.
A book and a swim suit.
A book and a cup of tea.
A book and a bath.
A book and a blanket.
A book and a fire.
A book and a chair on the porch.
A book and a road trip (if you're a passenger).
A book and a storm.
A book and a beach.
