Sincere Gift For Valentines Day

I Hate the Valentines day industry but I am still madly in love with you

I can totally get behind this message, Valentines Day is a commercial holiday, it’s got nothing to do with love and everything to do with card companies, restaurants, florists, hotels and resorts and a whole load of other people trying to make a quick buck out of people’s guilt.

Screw that. That said in buying this you are still supporting someone who is taking advantage of Valentines day, they may be marketing to people who hate it but they are harnessing your hate for evil! It’s like selling T-shirts that say Bah Humbug at Christmas, you may want make a statement about Christmas but you are unwittingly being used.

Maybe I’m just being to cynical…

Origami Tea Bags

Russian Artist/Designer Natalia Ponomareva has created this concept for Origami tea bags. I love tea and I love origami so it saddens me that this is just a concept. I also wonder why she chose the above “Dove” design over the more recognisable “crane” especially since the crane has a ready made compartment to put the tea leaves.
