It must be all the free time I have these days, but I keep finding pretty things and collecting them. Today I filled my handbag with conkers - they were all over the ground near the museum we visited on an excursion, and now I don't know what to do with them. We don't have them in Australia (do we?) so I was just consumed with getting as many home as possible.
I think when you're not surrounded by everyone you know, when you don't have to go to work everyday or worry about the stresses of real-life, you starting finding joy in the little things. These days, simple colours make me really happy! I discovered Belgian illustrator Vincent Mathy via designworklife and all of a sudden I want to go out and buy his new book, Jour papillon ou jour hérisson? Then I want to keep it forever and read it to my children.
I also armed myself with 4 postcards from the museum - vintage posters advertising the Normandy region. At this rate, I'll be arriving home in a shipping container surrounded by conkers and paper goods. It's probably a nicer way to travel anyway!
