It’s funny how when I shop nowadays, I’m not usually looking for anything in particular to purchase. I have more thingsthan most people in the world, I’m sure. So when I shop now I’m mostly shopping for ideas: things that I can share with you all here on the blog, a product that inspires my one-day product line, a piece of art that sparks an idea for a client…Because of this, often times, taking pictures of these inspiring things is enough, but every now and again (when the price is right and the product is just-so) things come home with me, too. Today I found these to yum-yums while thrifting in the Copenhagen neighborhood of Nørrebro. The vintage painting and the (embroidered? hand-stitched? Any needle-nuts know what kind of stitching this is?) hanging bag both got my mind racing when I looked at them and filled this crazy brain of mine with ideas. Like, wouldn’t that art-piece make a gorgeous T-shirt print? And this hanging bag…how amazing would it be as a plant-holder? This is how my crazy mind works.
When you shop, do you shop for ideas?
