Little Things Mean a Lot

I am a big fan of little things. (Did you see what I did there?) Little toys and dolls are so much more appealing to me than big ones. I love miniature versions of almost anything. I also like things that are naturally small - buttons, beads, shells. And my idea of a treasure chest is a little box full of stuff - toys, charms, beads, buttons, jewellery, bits and bobs of curiosities and kitschness, in fact.

I've been selling boxes of destash stuff in my etsy shop, but I was cleaned out a couple of weeks ago, by a lovely customer who bought every box I had listed! I've only just got around to re-stocking, and have added a new version - in a retro purse, instead of a box.

I LOVE seeing boxes of cute stuff from other etsy shops too. The queen of cute stuff is Gretchen at Shop66. This is one of her Secret Toy Stash Tins. I love them!

Here's one from MoonParade and one from ShabbyVintage Mom

And here are a couple from oldefrostfarm1780 and ShaneLilyRain

Doesn't it make you want to just rummage through and see what's in there?

Great minds think alike.. or at least stumble across the same things..
I espied that lovely little dog on Etsy and was sorely tempted..
