I travel, I plant, I paint (mainly walls), I scoot, I tie dye, I write

Do you get more attached or feel more connected to natural or artificial objects?

Two of my favourite items in my apartment I didn’t pay for, and I found them while out and about. Completely natural and perfectly imperfect. My favourite qualities in everything.

I have a lot of stuff (though I plan to get rid of most of it) and by far I feel more for these two items than the rest; my pile of shells and my tree branch. Don’t you just want to stare at those shells for hours? They’re fascinating. I’m not sure if I am going to keep them for long, I’m thinking of giving them out to some special peeps with a little message in. But they do look perfect together.. It seems a shame to split them up.. You are not attached, Emily, you are not attached! (I’m really not though.)

The day I gathered them.

On a walk a year ago (I think) I decided to pick up my tree branch and take it home with me. I got some real dodgy looks walking back, and even from my family when I washed it in my Mums garden. And yet when people come over they always compliment it, and I’m like ‘haaa in your face sucka!‘ You know, casual.

    The branch is my fav…the way it can be used to display things that are personal messages and reminders.

    1. Yep! You do end up accidentally collecting things though – like the hearts and signs. But you could do so many different things to personalise it, it’s pretty cool
