500 Blog Posts Give-Away HOO-Ray!

Where does the time go?  I am always asking that question, I know.  When I published my previous post I noticed that it was #499.  Really?  So I looked back to see how long I have been blogging and discovered it was FOUR YEARS as of March.  When I began I wasn't really sure if I wanted to do it or not and wondered what I would think of to talk about.  Now I cannot even imagine my life without this blog.  I have had the privilege and joy of connecting with so many treasured friends out there in blog land.  You guys offer encouragement, celebrate the junk scores and share ideas.  You are the best.  I love my tribe!
My give-away includes everything pictured and it is made up of vintage linens, buttons and lace - of course!  The altered bottle is filled with vintage MOP buttons.  The top is not glued on so you can open it and use the buttons for your projects.  The tags are covered in vintage wrapping paper and wrapped with some sweet pieces of lace trim and crinkly rayon seam binding at the top.  The lace is not permanently attached so it and the tags can be used for separate projects.  The altered tin is filled with an assortment of buttons from my personal accumulation of "keepers".
As always, there are no complicated rules.  Just leave a comment on this post and I will announce a winner next Monday.  A big thank you to all of you and HOO-Ray for blog friends!
