i woke up on monday, the first day of my third decade, to the smell of something incredible cooking. i got up to find the kitchen was magically transformed and there were a few gifts including hands-down the best handmade birthday card i’ve ever received. not many people know about my secret obsession with vintage camping gear and backpacks, but those who do, do. i also got the gift of a handmade lost wax cast flag pin. all from the lovely, beautiful, and incredibly talented cheri. it was perfect, thank you!
the upside of which is you can find awesome little things like this WWII torpedo mechanical pencil from sites like davesmechanicalpencils.blogspot.com
collapsible/folding ruler found in the back of the garage.
vintage paget double water bottle set.

i picked these up (gratis) at the jack spade store on greene street, this little box of matches is the perfect color combo and size to turn something you’d normally never think about into something special.
