The Little Things

Sometimes it's the littlest of things that make us the happiest, are more meaningful, and are what we remember most.  Private, quiet gestures from one to another without any strings attached warm our hearts and keep our motors running, especially during difficult times.  A sprinkle of cinnamon mixed with ground coffee awakens our taste buds.  An icy glass of water during on a hot day is the bomb.  A clean house calms our spirits, at least it does for me.  And a child's sweet hug and hot breath in our faces breaks our hearts. 

Another example:  a lone vintage metal rhinestone.  How beautiful is this?

Old fabric boxes holding unseen treasures are also quite nice:

And really nothing could be prettier than a single vintage metal rhinestone than a handful of vintage metal rhinestones:

At least until we open that old fabric box of goodies and find something so sublime, our hearts skip a beat:

And we behold the dazzling sight of 1,000 (not a typo) vintage metal rhinestones in pristine condition:

And we thank the Almighty for eyes to see, hearts to swoon, and Ebay to get our hands on such lovelies.

Be on the lookout for these pretties to grace In Small Spectacles pieces.
