melissa-illo-shorthair-180Hello. My name is Melissa and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I love home decor 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!
