Beauty In The Small Things

The ordinary . . . the small . . . the insignificant  . . . they are important, too! Every day we see and touch things that we don't even give a second glance. Yet, when given attention, these small things are as important and beautiful as the large things that do catch our eyes. I spent some time this week seeing the ordinary and small in a new way.

Plain brown twine and a cute little pair of scissors please my eye.

I didn't know I had so many colors of straight pins.

My heart swoons when I find a vintage button.

Dinner's on. I see a few carrots in there.

An ordinary spoon on a piece of fabric make a pretty reflection.

Take a moment.
Pick up something ordinary.
Look at it closely.
See the beauty in the small things.

I'm enjoying following the adventures in Kim Manley Ort's book Adventures In Seeing. This week we looked at small things and celebrated their beauty.
