A little while ago, I signed up for the beautiful use project organized by hoping for happy accidents...the purpose of the exchange was to find beauty in the everyday...and send your partner three things that are simple, beautiful and utilitarian. I had a hard time limiting myself to just three beautiful things, so I decided to choose a selection of words that I feel inspire simplicity + beauty in everyday life. I then paired these words with symbolic yet functional items.
Here are some b + w snapshots of what I sent to Margo [see color versions here]:
