Self Portrait: Reading My Tea Leaves



Good morning! I have a new, beautiful self portrait to share with you. The genuine, clever and charming Erin from Reading My Tea Leaves has provided us a look into who she is! Enjoy!

me, in everyday objects…

this morning's pot of tea. a stack of books, just like dad's. 390 boston post road. grandpa's harmonica, for when the saints go marching in. mon carnet d’adresses. fan coral from wildlife adventures with james. james. a pill box, from grace, who taught me how to live graciously. wildflowers.
