Thank you all for the birthday wishes on my last post. I had a great day.
Birthday's sure do come around fast when you are getting older :)
Have you ever bought something, put it up or left it in a bag and forgot you bought it? Well I did ... and it's not the first time :)
Last summer we had gone to my sister's lakehouse and on the way there is an antique mall ... full of stuff! She and I later went there to look and I found these Ball jars for $2 and $3. I know the antique stores around here ask at least $10 a piece.
I love the green glass (you can't really tell in the pic). I filled one up with some of my grandmother's old wooden spools. I put old buttons I had from an estate sale in the other jar. I have so many buttons that are still on the cards they came on. I don't know whether to take them off or leave them on the cards.
I put the jars on a table in my sewing room until I rearrange my sewing goods. I tied some red gingham around the lids to give them some color. I like color in my sewing room ... makes me happy!
Can you believe we are expecting snow again this week! The forecast is for snow on Wednesday night into Thursday ... ugh!
I really don't know how you gals in the north stand it!
Oh well gotta go sew and find something on television to watch.
Thanks for visiting!
