Collecting color: July is Navy

July is navy but I think my collection is a bit more on the blue side. I was also surprised to see how bright the shots came out but I shouldn't have been, the sun has been ruthless these past weeks.
Anyway here's the list of things: a permanent marker, Mazzy Star's Among my Swan, two small clay pots I've painted blue with fish bones and shells, a pack of matches I've had for so many years (I really like that the tip of the match is also blue). The book is an essay on violence from Roger Dadoun, next to it is a dip pen, though I seem to have misplaced the nib, the painkillers that work on me and above them a little bear policeman magnet. Right next to them is a cute toy, you wind him up and his does a little jig dance! Above that a felt brooch made by me and next to it a small ink pad and three bookmarks (I'm a collector of bookmarks, I actually have an entire box filled with them).

Have a great weekend,


  1. The blue tipped matches are a great addition, and I wish I could see your dancing robot guy in action! Thanks for collecting along :)

  2. Such a pretty and cute collection of navy! I kinda like Mazzy Star too. :)

  3. Hey ! I am a bookmark collector too and I am kind of jealous that you have so many cool blue ones! Love this little collection. Very comfy and is has such a "home-is-where-the-heart-is" feel to it.
