Littles

I've always liked little things.  Don't you?  There is something so sweet and compelling about  tiny cute objects.  
My daughter Natalie gave me this tiny little zipper bag to put in my purse.  It contains little emergency aids.
There is everything from a bandaid to sewing kit and manicure fixings.  It is light and perfect to take anywhere.  I feel prepared.  And it is cute.
When I was a kid I had an obsession for Liddle Kiddles.  Some of you may remember these.  The ones I had came in a locket but there were all kinds.
I even had this Liddle Kiddles Klub house.  Boy, don't I wish I had this now.  These things are pricey on today's market.  Ebay has a selection but at crazy prices.
I like little cute tissue packages.  It is hard to actually use them because they are so darling but I bought a gross of them at Daiso (thanks PKM) so I feel like I won't run out.  Achoo!
My love for littles brought me to these little zipper macaroons.  You can see how to make these here at Craft Passion.  I haven't tried it yet but I do have all the supplies.  I don't know why I'm so afraid to make my own.  It is all hand work, however.
And my love for littles attracted me to these little 2.5" charmers that I've been getting (and actually using).  They are low priced and I can get every fabric from the line for well under $4.00.  Etsy has lots of them.  If I can't get a mini charm pack in a line, I'll sometimes get the 5" charmers.  They are bigger but cute, too.   Moda even came out with a pattern book for the minis.  

Do you ever collect little things?

Thanks so much for the link for the little charm packs. Sherri sent me some as a gift, and I had no idea how to use them. Cute post, Nanette. And I love the little emergency pouch for your daughter. That is a great gift idea.

I loved Liddle Kiddles! I still, at age 56, would love to have a doll house...I think about making one out of an old bookcase all the time...I just need a granddaughter so I have an excuse. And I keep thinking of making those macaroons, they look so yummy in a sewing kind of way!

I had the Liddle Kiddles Clubhouse, too. I wonder what ever happened to it? :)

I had a Kiddle Cologne doll and guess what I still have it! It was still in my room at my parents house and when my kids were little I took it with me one visit. I didn't give it to them, but kept it and guess what, it still smells pretty. I loved that little doll. What a darling post. Who doesn't love small things ( especially small fabric scraps)

I spy an awesome Lakehouse pack in that collection -- I'll bet you got yours at the same place (indirectly) I did LOL. Can't wait to see what you do with yours! ;-D

You know, until you wrote this post I had no idea that I like littles also! I have a green apple kiddle cologne and a lemon meringue kiddle lollipop. Sometimes I let my grand daughter play with them. I collect charm packs and have always loved miniatures :)

Your collections of littlest things are adorable, Nanette! Thank you for a peek into your cute hobby! I can't say I have a collection of specific things except for some dolls that I got during our travels :)
