The magpie in me is attracted to “pretty little things.”  I come by it honestly, creatively, and frugally.  I always blame my mother. She is a woman who sees beauty in the most unusual of pieces, usually found items, which she recreates into something “other-”  other than “trash.”

Hopefully I will share a few of the pretty little things that I find or upcycle along my way.

… little stockings, trimmed with “fur” to tuck treasure inside of; a toadstool fit for a Gnome Prince…  I noticed these little pretties in a bin along the Seasonal aisle.  Perhaps, a gift card tucked inside for a favourite friend or cousin?  A glass toadstool clip for a boy who likes to garden?  These whimsical items can be purchased at Target.
