Tired, worn out cliché’s that we see over and over can be made new again. An overused expression or idea can become unique by reviving it with your own personal style.
Pretty as a picture.
You say: Pretty as a _______________.
Dig deeper: Pretty as a flower. What kind of flower? What color? Size? Shape?
The red roan filly was as pretty as a bed of wildflowers and about as hard to tame.
Peaches and cream complexion.
In a wink of an eye.
Like the pot calling the kettle black.
Fell flat on his face.
Eyes in the back of her head.
Chip off the old block.
Time will tell.
As bright as a new penny.
Knee high to a grasshopper.
