Paperweights

One of my favorite rooms to visit at the Art Institute of Chicago is the room housing the paperweight collection.

As I was antiquing last week, I began collecting some paperweights.

This will be more “stuff” for someone to remove from my living-place one of these days when I no longer require this stuff.

But for now, in the spirit of Marie Kondo, these bring me happiness.

Three of these objects will go to the office at Webster University, where I actually have need of paperweights to keep me from piling one stack ever higher and higher.
