At Home: A Fun-A-Day Project Week 3 Update

36 Cube - PhotoADay2016-Day3.jpg

I can't believe the third week of January has come and gone. This year is certainly off to a quick start! Here is an update on my Fun-A-Day Boston project, a collection of photographs of my home, inspired by the book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. You can read more about my inspiration in my Week 1 update

Below are the items I have photographed to date:

l2r: A sculpture in front of a fashion sketch by my late grandmother, Liti (short for Abuelita)

A painting by my Liti - I noticed it in the background of a photograph of her with her art students. She dug it out of storage and refinished it for me about a year before she died. I love that it adds a harsh pop of color to our home. And I love that that is evident even here among the greys, whites and leafy greens.

Part of my favorite peaceful kitchen windowsill, my Jade plant, given to me from my late step-mother, Jane

Another piece from my Liti, a framed article about her winning a case for women's rights

My living room as the sun sets

Our "T+T" {Tracy + Thomas} champaign cork art block, given to us from Thomas' step-mother, Stacie

Call me silly, but I just love this bag from Anthropologie. I have a thing for brush strokes.

My collection of first cameras - two Minolta film cameras, a Canon Rebel film camera {my first trip to B&H in NY to purchase it}, yes, there's a Polaroid in there, a DIY pinhole camera, and a silly point and shoot. And, I recently found a few rolls of film left unshot. It's time to get on that!
