everyday collections

after reading a bunch about collections recently, this photo from hownowdesign (via so sweet & so cold) made me realize that THAT's the kind of collecting that i'm the most enchanted by.

my mind says: a whole jarful of bread bag tabs!?!? wow! cool!

bottle caps, mesh fruit bags, ticket stubs, glass jars, tin cans. all those colorful/simple designs. and having a whole bunch of them together? fascinating.

the vintage goodies that other folks collect are gorgeous--but the simplicity & accessibility of everyday collections are the most intriguing to me.

maybe i should start recording the little collections that i've subconsciously created...

*yes, i realize this photo is actually a product shot for the glove stretcher on the right.
