Why are close-ups of everyday objects so lovely? I have a bunch of these on my computer in my "inspiration file" along with lots of pictures of purses, jewelry, and other ideas I've found all over the net. I wonder if these will ever come in handy... Even if they don't I love looking at them. The lovely food coloring pic is from Liquid Paper, see her flickr here. And I unfortunately can't figure out where I got the pencil pic, if anyone has seen it before please let me know!
