Thoughtful Splash of Color

I work for a small engineering test lab for the aerospace industry. The office and work areas are very basic (rather drab) and filled with tools and machinery. However, one of the guys surprised me with his artful arrangement - a bouquet of zip ties.

Sometimes it's the little things that brighten a day.


  1. Very thoughtful and artful indeed. Not only lovely but useful and repurposed...folgers container.

  2. Your friend seems like a very creative fellow with a great sense of humor! I'm sure the vivid colors brightened up your day, as well as your office. It must be interesting working in a test lab for the aerospace industry. You have many talents, Joanne!


  3. For an office mate, he's a keeper. It's a bright, smile-inducing creation.

  4. HA! I LOVE it.

    Reminds me of when I worked in a lab located in the deep dark bowels of a hospital. Really. It was in the basement, and quite dreary and depressing. We decided it was in dire need of some color, so we hung pretty curtains at the ugly windows and put brightly-colored flower power and peace signs contact paper on some of the lab tops. What a difference! Gotta have some color! I'm glad your office mate "gets" it.

    Happy weekend!

  5. That's pretty! I've been told I am addicted to color, so that would definitely catch my eye. :-)
