So what items do you deem worthy of saving from the dustpan??

  • Coins
  • An earring
  • A ladybug
  • Bone, shell, celluloid or other type of vintage button. (A cheaper one totally gets kicked to the curb)
  • Thumbtacks
  • Hair ties (depending on how desperate I am though)
  • Postage stamp
Those that have given their lives:
  • Bugs
  • Paper clips
  • Bobbi pins
  • Needles
  • Jump rings (for jewelry making)
  • Beads
  • Sequins
  • Stitch markers
Sometimes it's just not worth the dusty fingers, right?? Plus, in a very, very small way it does lighten my collection. I do really hate being wasteful though, so I promise to not do it too often! How about you guys??
