kintsugi, broken things are repaired with gold (or silver) joinery, so that the repaired object is even lovelier than the original — and the breakage and repair becomes an important part of the object's history, rather than something to disguise. The idea that adversity could make something (or someone) more beautiful, and that old things have a history that makes them rich and valuable, is a lovely and deeply comforting one. In this image from Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm, a cracked floorboard, filled with hexagonal shaped pieces of wood turned on end, becomes an eyecatching design detail. I love this concept and keep finding new iterations of it.

Getting the Christmas lights ready to put up on this cold day. I love seeing the white lights like little stars during December. It seems to help me through this dark time of the year to have that glow around the house. This year I am putting up a cluster of star lights for the first time. I will post a photo of that tomorrow after we finish getting things sorted out!
