Tomorrow morning I am headed to the Plucky Maidens Junk Fest for a play date with a good friend. They just did a segment on it on the local news. I can hardly wait!
Don't forget, my Reader Appreciation Give Away doesn't close until Monday so there is still time to leave a guess, or maybe a second one!

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!
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!!

I was able to spend several hours in the garden on both days and made some progress getting things cleaned up. I transplanted all the volunteer foxglove that popped up in the compost pile, weeded the parking strip in front and started cleaning up the fish pond. And I did it all in SHORT SLEEVES!
Working in the garden is therapeutic on so many levels. When I am weeding and straightening up I go into some sort of plucking-a-weed-trance and everything else just fades into the background. Except the sore hands of course. 8+)

baskets". I usually just stick to those to keep the collection under control but I couldn't resist this little crumb set. I haven't decided if it is headed for Etsy or if I'll keep it for myself.

There were some great buttons in this tin. You can't stop looking until you have picked up and turned over every single button because just when you think there is nothing left to find - there is something else. Buttons are funny that way.
