morning (pushpin) candy


I have yet to set up my new office at home, but when I saw these pushpins at the Curiosity Shoppe, I instantly felt inspired. I know it sounds a little weird to get inspired by a pack of colorful, normal pushpins, but I’m thinking their wonderfully minimal, Italian feel should be the theme of my new workspace. Clean, sparse and colorful — seems like a theme that would leave plenty of room for ideas and brainstorming. Normally, I pack my workspace with a bajillion clippings and find myself feeling overwhelmed, but something clean and colorful like this might do the trick. You can pick up a pack of these beauties (to inspire your own workspace) right here for $4. xo, grace

Inspiration can find us in the strangest of places! Although, I have a wee obsession with stationery items, so maybe for me this is not so strange…

So much fun! If they make it look like candy, chances are, I will want to buy it. Target picked up on this some time ago.

i love it how you can get inspired by everyday things when you look at them with new eyes :)

Little finds like this are wonderful! A tiny, practical treat. I love things that are functional/useful and have whimsy.

Well, but in fact you can DO something with such a little “space”.

In the 80’s, my aunt used to paint any kind of patterns and mini designs inside pushpins, and they were GREAT!! I wish I could do it, but my hands are so shaky :(

That’s why I pass the knowledge :P

Wow…culture clash! These are totally normal ‘drawing pins’ to this here Scottish gal. That’s just how they come, and have done all my life!!

Charlotte

Ahahaha. (laughing at myself)

My pre-coffee morning brain read the title as “chocolate pushpins” and I stared at the screen in horror and fascination for a full minute trying to figure out how/why anyone would make such a dangerous little object into food. Just imagine the mix-up! OUCH.

you’re right grace, color push pins ARE inspiring. and so is design*sponge. besides brushing my teeth, checking design*sponge is about the only other thing i manage to do every day.

We used to have those all over when I was little not sure if the brand was the same but I used to love the little sound the plastic tops would make when you shook them.
