Collection: Around the house

Just a few of my things from around the house. Miscellaneous bits from my pocket, cupboard, desk, jewelry box, treasure drawer, and book shelf. Some of these are my most favorite possessions, others are current obsessions, trinkets from the past, familiar friends from my everyday routine.
