a day like any other, except slightly cleaner

Today so far, has been about cleaning, dusting, "hoovering", washing the rugs, changing the bedding, wiping the glass, emptying the garbage... all that blah blah kinda stuff.

In celebration of my cleanliness, I've decided to share these 2 images which I discovered awhile ago at cibone, and found them to be quite lovely.

I tend to think that the world would be slightly more inspiring if we were surrounded by everyday products made with such care and craftsmanship.

Japanese broom, constructed of leather palm and rattan

Japanese dustpan is made from paper, which is dyed with persimmon juice

Cool broom! I'd love to hit my children with that!
