This whole blog is about celebrating the mundane, and nothing encapsulates this philosophy more perfectly than these scissors. A practical, functional item made beautiful. Yes, they’re used for stabbing open plastic-wrapped tomatoes while children whine that they’re hungry, or for slicing through wrapping paper three minutes before we leave for a birthday party, but that’s the whole point. The everyday, made exceptional. Every time I see them there’s a second where I’m distracted from the chaos and I can admire the slick design. It’s only a second – but I’ll take it. You can get them everywhere, but as there’s lots of other pretty, useful things to distract you on here, try this place first.
