Recently while out and about I came across some Shoe brushes at my local thrift store. They somehow made their way into my basket and followed me home. I had no idea what I was going to do with them at the time but just seeing them planted a little seed and then poof inspiration struck!! You see I have always LOVED the old antique flower frogs and wanted to use them in little displays. But sadly they are so very expensive a little tricky to come by in my neck of the woods. So the other night just as I was drifting off to sleep inspiration struck! The Thrifted Shoe Brushes slapped me in the face. Maybe with a lick of paint, they could kinda work as the flower frogs would. You can only try, right?
