The little birds...

If you watch little birds you will see they are busy and happy! Using whatever they can find they create the most gorgeous little nest.
I would be the little bird with some glittery thread in her nest!
We can be like this. Happily working away with the things that are available to us to create a beautiful and happy home.
All the while with a little song in our heart.

So many uses...

My Mum has always used clothes pegs (clothes pins) to keep things closed, packets of things in the pantry and in the fridge. Useful but not very pretty!

Then I was given some pegs painted pale pink and covered in little hand painted roses! Suddenly I liked pegs! Since I have seen them on Etsy covered in glitter for uses at Christmas time. 

I made these to close and finish little gifts in tiny paper bags and cellophane bags. I did some last year and pinned them to the Christmas tree and used them to pin Christmas cards across a little line I set up and it looked lovely! With a magnet stuck on one side they could be used to hold notices on the fridge.

As I was doing them I thought of my friend who would adore these with little ballerinas. But the options are endless! Imagine on party favour bags or on a little line in a bedroom to pin drawings or photos.
