My daughter has had this bulletin board for very many years. She keeps it so pretty by using felt shapes under the pins she uses. She prefers to use the pins that have colorful beads on the end of them.


Isn't it cute? She also uses little jewelry decorations to decorate her board. The board looks so cheerful and happy. I love to look at this board everyday.
