Reader Appreciation Give Away

Time to reveal what I was up to in THAT post.  I am 1 away from 100 followers so it's time for a give-away to show my appreciation to all of you who read my blog, take time to leave your comments and stick with me through my ramblings.  You make my life richer!
I put together this selection of buttons hand-picked from my personal collection.  I have included buttons from every category I sort; MOP, wood, glass, metal, leather, vintage plastic, vegetable ivory, celluloid tight-top, bone, china, glass and plastic rhinestones and fabric.  There are 70 buttons in all.  I altered an Altoid tin to store them in, although it's a pretty tight fit and barely closes.

So what do you need to do to win this sweet little tin of buttons?  Well this give-away is a little different.  You don't need to blog about me, although I would love it if you did, you don't need to sign up to follow me, although I would love it if you do. All you need to do is leave a comment and a guess.
You're going to want to take a look back at THIS post where I was showing you that big jar of plastic buttons that sits on my workbench.  Yes, I counted them!
All you have to do is guess the number of buttons in the jar.  It measures 7" wide and 7" tall (not counting the pedestal.  Full disclosure: I removed 43 buttons as I was arranging them for the picture so there are 43 more in the jar than the pictures.  You are guessing the number in the jar.
Enter as many times as you like.  I don't know how many comments would make Blogger blow up and I would rather not be responsible for finding out so please don't leave 10,000 guesses each - LOL!  The comment that comes the closest to the exact number wins.  In the case of a tie, the comment that was left first win.
I will announce the winner on Monday, April 30th.  Have fun and good luck!!
