About Me


Hello. My name is Melissa and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I love home decor, design, and fashion. I like shopping, but I don’t really need more stuff. I’m trying to be a more mindful shopper — to buy only what I absolutely love and will use many times, and to try to pare down. I’m also trying to better about seeking out sustainable and ethical brands. But there’s so many cool things in the world! And I love a bargain. I guess you could say I struggle with my love of stuff.

Sometimes items catch my eye because they’re interesting, or cute, or there’s something about the shape or colors, or I can see how well made it is. So, I started this blog as a way to share objects that spark my interest. Even if I decide not to own an item, maybe it’s something that you will love.

They are welcome objects.

Welcome, objects!


About My Reviews & Ads

All items reviewed on my blog are things that I’ve purchased for myself (unless they’re not, and if that’s the case, I will tell you.) I have Google Adsense running in my sidebar and am also a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. Sometimes I have referral links to a specific retailer, but I will let you know it’s a referral link. All opinions are my own (and I have lots of opinions).
