Cost Plus...a California icon. It's not quite the same any more. Gone are the days when you could find real German scrap and sugar Easter eggs. Oh well, I guess I'm showing my age!


I want some of these for my grandkids....they will love them......will check out your etsy store.....m

Remember the German paper cut outs they had around the holidays? Stacks of them...angels, flowers, santas.Seems like dream to me now.


These are just great! What a nice job you've done. We used to go to Cost Plus OFTEN. That one or the one in Jack London Square. I'd fill up my basket & then have to put a lot of it back, but I know I still have some things...like crocheted little babies @ 1.5" tall.


Love these! I have seen chocolate balls that have fun little surprises inside.

thanks for the visit!!

12 is a tough age to delight and I could certainly try. Maybe you could send me some ideas via email.I am waiting for some rings to come that I can use to make my own with buttons and rhinestones, should be very groovy.


groggy morning over here
what with staying up so late
to read harry potter
and the rain and all...

came over
for a bit of bright color
to start my day!

can you make those special ballies
personalized a bit?

for a 12 year old niece with red hair...
