I added pom poms to my striped clutch, and I switch them around to different bags all the time.

    Some real eye candy in this post! When I saw the bugs at Target I thought about you. Glad to see you scooped them up and put them to a very pretty purpose.

    I’ve seen similar glass boxes recently (last week) in Homegoods. They were silver and not brass or gold tho. Very reasonable prices!
