when heart sponges give life lessons

026

I'm a stickler for well-thought through details, in general the quirkier the better. I'm also a firm believer that design that combines a pleasing playfulness with user-friendliness and comfort always wins over things that oozes boring usability only.

Add to that an even firmer belief that the daily boring household chores - but please, always keep in mind that a clean house is a sign of a wasted life - instantly get more fun-ish with the right tools. Like a red vacuum of course.

But on the more perishable side of tools I like to give an example;

these heart sponges. Of course the cleaning and washing will be much more fun in the company of perky heart shaped sponges (or any other pleasing shape) than the usual unimaginative, dull rectangular sponge.

Admittedly I got these in Denmark quite a few years ago, but it was only recently the bobbaloos found them and reminded me that life and chores get quite a bit easier to manouevre with sweeter looking tools.

Bobbaloos really are not only cute as buttons, they're really clever little enlighteners. Us humans are so often blind to the obvious, sometimes it takes a bobbaloo or two to see sense and light. Heart.

Hooray! For the Bobbaloos! Anything to make every day chores less of a drudgery. We all need to find the light side in everything that we do.

I wholeheartedly agree! Why have something that is simply useful, when it could be useful/fun or useful/beautiful? And you've just given me an idea... doyou have (what we call "pop-up") sponges available? They are sold FLAT, smushed down, no air... You could cut them into whatever shape you please. Even... Say... A Bobbaloo sillhouette? :)

Those are so cute. Cleaning actually de-stresses me, so I like to do it. Not to mention the work out it gives too, without the hefty gym fee. ;p

So agree. Beauty is never wasted. Thanks.
