A really lovely vintage family portrait - I had to look long and hard to see whether they might actually be relatives of mine.
The full array is above, and I've zoomed in on the turtle pins and the library book pocket below. I was (and still am) just so surprised and excited to own pieces from one of my favorite-est shops on Etsy. Once the others in my family returned to unwrapping their own gifts, ignoring my continued exclamations, I did mention to my mom how it was so funny that Regina had sent me gifts, as I had sent her a box as well. I have integrated all of the items into my studio to inspire me with the same happiness and creativity I experienced on Christmas day. The game pieces are in a letterpress tray on the wall, the paper items are tucked into my inspiration board, along with the turtle pins, and the glass pieces are resting on shelves, ready to serve in scientific or non-scientific tasks. I cannot thank my mom and Regina enough for the gifts, they truly brought me more joy than I deserve.Be good. Be easy. xo, everyeskimo.
