I got nothin'

...just some pretty pictures.


These are old thread spools. They are from my grandfather's sister. After she died I helped my grandparents clean up her house and my grandmother gave me a lot of little things like this that were my great aunts. Most people probably would have thrown these out but I really like to have them.


Glass door knobs and tiny black and white tiles.

I'm going to work on a mini photo essay on things I love about my house. The sale of the house is on hold for now but while we were still planning it I was looking around and re-saw everything that I fell in love with when we first found the house five years ago. It's funny how you can 'go blind' to your surroundings once you've been there a while.

I love the photos. They're certainly not 'nothin'. Makes me want to look around and find something cool to photograph.

The knobs and that floor are some things I would love in my house, too.
