Why We Junk and a Few New Buttons

 I made a couple of new altered book pages that I haven't posted yet so here we go.  I love the quote on the right.  It is by Mary Randolph Carter.  If you aren't familiar with her, she authored "American Junk", "Garden Junk", "Kitchen Junk" and a few others.  She validated the love of junk for me.  Her books are pure eye candy!
I also got a new lot of buttons this week.  Nothing to shout about but these are the favorites that will be added to my accumulation.
Going out to breakfast with #1 son and family to celebrate the DIL's birthday tomorrow morning.  I love going out for breakfast!  Rain in the forecast for the afternoon so junking may be in order... 8+)
Happy weekend to you!
