Two things I love

It's Tuesday and yet again, I haven't got photos of two things I love around my home. In my defence though, we were out the door at 7:20 this morning, so I didn't have many opportunities to wander my house with the camera before we were loading up the mini-van and heading for our various destinations. Anyway, I really enjoy Two Things Tuesday so I hope you don't mind if I share two things I love around my library again. Here they are:

This is my birthday card from my dearest friend Emily 2 years ago, sent from New York City just before she moved to France. Isn't it great? I love the vintage look of it. It's one of my favourite cards on the postcard wall.

A thousand paper cranes, in honour of Sadako and her thousand cranes. Have you read her story? It's tragic but inspiring. These cranes were here when I started at this job 5 years ago and I hope they always will be. Aren't they beautiful?

And now for something new. Nicole at My Teacups in Peony has been posting photos of feet around the world for a while now. Today I thought I'd join in! Here's where my (tiny little) feet have taken me today:

Tonight they're taking me for a run (run for 7 min, walk for 1 min x8!). Let's hope it's not pouring rain and blowing a hurricane like it was last Tuesday night. Because that was so. not. fun. After my run they'll take me home to curl up on the couch and watch LOST. It's all about Richard tonight! Finally, some answers! (well, one would hope...)

Happy Tuesday my dears.

  1. Another Lost fan, will we ever get answers!? I forgot tonight was about Richard, I hope it's a good one.

    Ariana and I went to the library today too!


  2. Oh I love your shoes on the welcome to the library mat, just adorable.

  3. aw thanks for taking part! im training for a marathon right now so you just reminded me i need to get my butt in gear;)

  4. that postcard is lovely. I hope I can visit one day!! oh, I really do!

    and your feet ARE tiny! :) I wish mine were smaller. I wear 9 1/2, sometimes a 10! but I guess no matter what the size, they all get us where we want to go!

  5. The cranes are just gorgeous! I've been trying to get my boyfriend to make me a mobile of cranes. But now...do you think 1000 would be too much to ask?

  6. Love seeing all the corners of your little library!

    If you can get hold of Eddie Izzard Marathon Man on the BBC (in aid of Sports Relief) I can certainly recommend it. If it can't inspire you to run I don't know what can - certainly made us think. Hope run was good tonight.



Yay! I love comments.
