Everyday Items of Beauty

Tea Tags Assortment, originally uploaded by sarcoptiform.
For a couple of years now, I've been collecting the small pieces of life that normally get thrown away.

What I've noticed is that there are many beautiful things that pass through our lives that normally don't get a second look. These things were created by designers as part of products. They serve their purpose, but they don't ever get the spotlight.

Here's a great collection of tea bag tags, one of the many items I've been collecting and using in my Anything Books. They are beautiful, colorful, and they are all different. While you might stare at your tea bag tag while you are waiting for the water to boil, it's something that slips into the background of your day.

What mundane items inspire you with their beauty?

Take a second look at the things around you.
