02 / BRAND NEW Turtle Walking (Flânerie) Print
Why a girl walking a turtle? If you read the book, you’d know. But ….
In 1800’s Paris it became fashionable for people to walk a pet turtle to set a slower pace–to stop and notice the colorful details of life.
Flânerie is the art of walking slowly without a hurry, strolling, sauntering.
I used to have this word washi taped in my room to remind me to slow down and pay attention to my life. Now, I’ve got this darling Turtle Walking print to remind me.
My graphic designer, Aaron Campbell, sketched this for me, on a whim, while working on the chapter “Look for a Lovely Thing,” in which I discuss the concept of flânerie. It’s so loved by those who have seen it–so we decided we wanted to share it with the world.
This print is an 8×10 .PDF DOWNLOAD. Frame it, make it a canvas or tack it to your wall with washi tape.
03 / GEZELLIG Print
You may have seen this one before. It is an illustration in the book, that I absolutely adore. Here is why I hang it in my home:
“Cozy” is the closest translation to this Dutch word that best embodies a mood or feeling. It’s a home that is cozy, warm, and inviting. It’s togetherness and belonging. A place can be Gezellig, and so can a person.
I have this hanging in my home to remind me that I want the SOUL OF MY HOME to be a warm atmosphere of togetherness—nothing short of a comforting hug.
