a collection a day

one of my favorite daily blog reads is A Collection a Day, 2010. every day Lisa Congdon compiles (or draws) a group of like items and the result is this amazing blog! i don't think i could continue to come up with ideas, but she's ready to do 365 different collections. if you haven't heard of this gem of a blog, i really urge you to go take a look-see. if you're like me and love the way things look when they're put together in a nice and tidy little arrangement, you'll absolutely love it!

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
