I overthink everything you DON’T say.
Going through pics tryina find what length worked best after I chopped it all… Also debating a fun color, dang all you rainbow haired bbs.
Recent mourning pieces… My mood has clearly shifted my antique purchases as of late.
New letter from my Granny Tootsie! Clutching it close like treasure.
Find me a tomb where the wildflowers grow
Bury me shallow so that I might know
That I finally became something beautiful.
An appropriate find for my recent state. My very own Victorian tear catcher. Mourners were known to cry into them and pour the contents over the grave of their loved one.
💔 Heartbreaking letter from my Granny Tootsie today, but I’m thankful for any letter at all. ❤
Went out after this and bought a 50 pack of blank cards, been writing my Gran letters every week. Also, its day ten since I started taking magnesium again, and I’m feeling good. And I just got off the phone with my mom after talking for an hour or so, we do that all the time, even though we see each other constantly. I’m just really thankful to have that kind of relationship with my mom… I’m thankful for all the women in my life.
Another handsome Victorian locket couple. Hard to get a clear picture, tintypes under beveled glass. Could use a gentle cleaning, but I’m too wary to do it myself. ✨🎩👨👩🔑✨
She’s claimed the boy as her own.

Feeling really peaceful today! Sometimes you just gotta mourn those phantom losses and let go. I feel new. Reset. Ready. Started taking magnesium again, picking out a good book. Filling myself with the kind words from you beautiful lads and lasses. Thanks for staying rad and caring.
