I like pretty things. Who doesn't? I don't like spending $4.99 on 'chip clips' or 'good grips' or any other overpriced gadget to keep your snack bags closed. I just use clothes pins. Chips, crackers, frozen veggies, bags of rice, cereal... in my house you'll find clothes pins sealing them shut. But not just any clothespin... a pretty clothespin.
One Sunday afternoon I got tired of the bare wood look.
I dug out my modge podge and some fabric scraps and beautified these babies.
Then, an unexpected package arrived from my aunt in LA. It's the same aunt who gave me the vintage train case I upcycled, (click here to see that post), and the same aunt who lives in the awesome cottage I blogged about a while back, (click here to see that post.)
Out came the glue gun and oila!
It's the little things that make life fun and pretty.
Do you do anything simple like this that just brings a smile to your face every time you see/use it?
