Elevate the Everyday from Real Simple simplystated blog

I got a great new product in the mail yesterday that got me thinking about, for lack of a better phrase, "elevating the everyday." Here's what started it:

A set of playing cards from Binth ($9.50 per pack), a screenprinting and design company out of Chicago. The cards are gorgeous. Each suit has a different illustration for the three face cards, and there is beauty in the simplicity of the numbered cards.

Now, I know that you can get a pack of Bicycle cards cheap (only $1.25 on Amazon), but this is where the whole idea comes in, choosing quality and design and elevating your everyday things

(NOTE - this is similar to my philosophy of "life is short, use the fancy china")
