i tend to gravitate toward the little things that fit in between what’s in the actual picture.
this goes for actual photos, and words left unsaid in the middle of monologues, that are then parsed later for meaning. this pull also leads me to far more superficial leanings – the way one layers a necklace on top of another, how that one strand of hair out of place makes a person look a little more real, and all the little odds and ends that fill up the spaces in between the larger pieces of a home. i adore the vignettes as a friend called them, that make a house a home. a bowl that was originally a wedding bomboniere now serves as a sugar bowl – a bread basket used as a mail catch-all, a phrenology bust as amusing sideboard head-scratcher. these are tell-tale signs of a home that’s lived in and the things that i adore most. they tell the stories of a life lived the way a lumpy old sofa never could.
