Everyday beauty


Lots of people are talking about beauty in the "everyday". I love that. Simplicity and sanity, lifting up the ordinary, savoring the sweetness of each moment. My moment each day begins with our spoons. I love to buy spoons in Germany each year. They are everywhere. They have a spoon for everything you could imagine. Each and everyone of them have a historical moment in my life behind them. Silly, everyday kind of moments. The pressed glass container I have owned for years, which served no purpose until 7 years ago when I started buying spoons. Lovely marriage of beauty and usefulness.

Lovely photo, Susan. I was noticing my childhood fork while I was at my mom's place this past weekend. Little, "everyday" things connected to fond memories... Are you going to do Penelope's assignment?
