2 Seeing Sallie's pretty things made her long for such, and pity herself because she had not got them.
3 Beth was sorting the cones that lay thick under the hemlock near by, for she made pretty things with them.
4 But I am afraid I don't, and Meg shook her head, as she thought regretfully of all the pretty things she wanted.
5 It must have been dreadfully hard, after working so long and setting your heart on selling your own pretty things.
6 A group of girls were standing about May's table, admiring the pretty things, and talking over the change of saleswomen.
7 "I don't think it's fair for some girls to have plenty of pretty things, and other girls nothing at all," added little Amy, with an injured sniff.
8 Beth declared she wouldn't go to the fair at all, and Jo demanded why she didn't take all her pretty things and leave those mean people to get on without her.
9 "I wish I knew where all these pretty things would go when Aunt March dies," she said, as she slowly replaced the shining rosary and shut the jewel cases one by one.

11 She also allowed her to roam about the great house, and examine the curious and pretty things stored away in the big wardrobes and the ancient chests, for Aunt March hoarded like a magpie.
12 She always felt wicked after it, for the pretty things were seldom necessaries, but then they cost so little, it wasn't worth worrying about, so the trifles increased unconsciously, and in the shopping excursions she was no longer a passive looker-on.
13 Nothing has happened to write about, except a call on Miss Norton, who has a room full of pretty things, and who was very charming, for she showed me all her treasures, and asked me if I would sometimes go with her to lectures and concerts, as her escort, if I enjoyed them.
