You are as pure beside me

Here's a lovely little remembrance bracelet by Brass Isaac. I like the way the words are separated yet together, seems poetic and fitting.

These are shrinky dinks, by the way, and can be custom ordered with any kind words you prefer.

Vintage Funeral Chair

I love the stoic nature of this vintage French funeral chair, offered by Hindsvik on Etsy. So practical and modest and rustic. Most vintage furniture evokes a narrative for me, and with this folding chair I wonder how much grief this fragile chair has beared over the years. I think of all the people who must have taken a seat here at one point, and wonder what they were thinking. It seems like an extra chair, stacked in the corner for those who arrive late. Perhaps delayed in the rain, or ambivalent about attending the service, or kindly giving up their more stable seat to someone who needs it.
