It doesn’t take much to create a face: two marks for eyes, one for a mouth; a nose isn’t even necessary most of the time! In The Blue Umbrella, a new short by Pixar, you’ll find adorable examples of personified everyday objects:

Long before The Blue Umbrella, I loved spotting “faces” in everyday, inanimate objects! Below is my own random collection of faces I’ve come across around town, at home, or in places I’ve visited:

There’s something charming about this water meter cover… maybe it’s big, round eyes?

Sandwiches look so cute right before you eat them.

Okay, so this is an ACTUAL face, but it’s still cool & random nonetheless.
