my favorite place

this side table beside my sofa. 

i think i love this space because everything on it comes from all over the world and from different parts of my life, but is still woven together by my absolute favorite ocean-deep shades of blue.
(the color of calm!)

lamp: from my mother's childhood

 teacup: picked up and toted around painstakingly while traveling in india

 spice tin + blue ink bottle: from a thrift shop in rural north carolina

 swedish ivy: grown and sold by one of my students as a fundraiser for a school program

and of course, the side table itself -- thrown on the side of the road and saved by my mother's keen eye for hidden treasure.
