Fun and cute things

It's been a few days since my last post, so I though I would drop in to say HELLO.

Over the past week, I've been busy playing with my new digital camera. I've been going through my house just taking pictures of random things that I will add to my future blog posts. For today, I will only share one of them.

I was in Michael's craft store a while ago when I found these really cute pastel colored "diaper pins" on the bridal/baby shower party favor isle.

They were so cute and I couldn't resist buying a couple of packs. They were very inexpensive and are just something fun and cute and even functional as they are actually quite sturdy. They are about 1.5 inches in size. I thought it would be fun to use them instead of paperclips when I want to keep papers attached together. They are now sitting on my desk in my office at home in small white hobnail dish where they are in easy reach whenever I need to clip something together.

I love finding odd and unusual things to use in a new way.

Enjoy the rest of your week :)

Hi Kim!
WELCOME to blogland and blogging. Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me. I love meeting new bloggers and would love to add you to my list of those I'd love to visit.

Your home is lovely...and DON"T be afraid to paint your BROWN furniture...it is SO easy..and there are many of us who just jumped in, started and learned from there. Most surfaces just need a light sanding for the paint to adhere and then you just brush or roll it on. If you make a mess..no on knows but you! It can be fixed or sanded also! Hope you'll give it a try!

Hope you will come back and visit again!
Blessings...Lorena

Hi Kim
Love the pastel clothes pins, so cute in that little dish too. Sometimes I buy little things just for the colors and display them, very pretty.

Hi Kim, The pastel clothes pins are very clever. I love your gorgeous collection of tea things and the rose and yellow tea pot on your sidebar.
