Buttons!

As mentioned before I signed up for my first couple of swaps a few weeks ago and today I received my first package! It was from a fellow Okie who sent me these lovely buttons. I love the yellow one with the blue/purple rings and the gold lion head :)














Here are the buttons I sent her. I had a hard time finding one's I though she would like. For some reason the thrift stores didn't have any buttons while the time the swap was going on. My swap partner likes purple so I tried to include some pretty purple buttons :)














But there were lots of buttons at the Wise Old Crazy Owl Thrift Store today (I think the store name gets longer each time I type it). I got ten cards of buttons for $.10 each. BTW the book used for the background is one I got for $.25 at the Salvation Army a couple of weeks ago.














With the new additions to my button collection, it has grown out of it's cute square jar so I started another jar...which I bought today for $.25. The cool thing about the Tyler candle jar is that it was made in the town where my sister lives...Tyler.














Stay tuned for my next post. It will be my 200th blog post and in celebration of that and of my blogiversary (Oct. 7th) I will be hosting a giveaway!

OMG, when I saw that jar that was so cool, then I read your thing about Tyler. I heard that those candles really smell when you light them (something I've been looking for) and they really do. They smell up the entire living room and even cover up the dog smell.

What kind of scents do you like? I'll buy you a candle and send it to you.

I still can't believe that you found that jar in Ada, OK. What store did you get it?
