Antiques on Pierce reminded me of treasures from my grandmother’s house. A multiplication and concentration of grandmother’s houses.
We had fun exploring the three floors and showing Inés how to use a rotary dial phone.
I bought two big serving dishes. My favorite is deep green with a spinning pattern ($12). Inés chose a goose box ($6.5) for her bedroom. The box is in fact a sugar bowl but she doesn’t mind.
And here are the serving plates living a new life.
Other things I liked recently
Dare to Lead by Brené Brown: I found this book very inspiring. I have downloaded the list of values and have been working on it for days, it is really hard to reduce it to two. I am driving my husband crazy with questions about it.
Don’t look Up: A comedy that scares you because it feels so real.
My Neighbor Totoro: Magical.
BRUCE (XIAOYU) LIU – final round (18th Chopin Competition, Warsaw): This competition totally hooked me up. I don’t usually listen to classical music and know very little but I have been watching and listening to this on repeat.
How to be useless: I liked the book recommendations at the end.
No Such Thing as a Fish. Episode 409 for a great lesson on tardigrades.
The Witcher TV Series: I haven’t read the books. I liked this series.
