corners of my home, pt 2

This Thanksgiving weekend is spent not celebrating traditionally, but chatting with far-away family with the use of webcam-wonders, and being thankful even with the absence of turkeys, mashed potatoes, cranberries, and all the other fixings.

I still feel like we’re setting up house here, and we’re still waiting for the rest of our things to arrive. But I am glad for some little things – a full tea set in the thinnest porcelain, inherited from a favorite great-aunt; some beautiful colored glass stemware; a little ceramic dish for a little bar of hand-soap, making something utilitarian in the kitchen feel a little more aesthetically pleasing. So while we’re patiently waiting for the rest of our settling to happen, it is calming to have some things in order.
