OnE hUnDReD pOsTs!!!!!!!


giveaway now closed
i will be doing the draw
for the lucky winner
this afternoon :0)



WOW
it's hard to believe that this is my one hundredth post !!
I have noticed in blogland that people celebrate their blog-a-versaries with a giveaway i wasn't organised for mine so i will celebrate my hundredth post instead!



The other day i could handle the mess on my desk no longer,
after there was an unfortunate avalanche when a big tin of pencils made a break for freedom, resulting in a
huge crash that woke my daughter and knocked over the piles "stuff" on the floor too!
So i cleared my desk so that i could see the whole of my A2 cutting mat before
i got bored and started just pushing the stuff to the edges!
BUT in the clearing process i filled a thrifted jar to overflowing with all sorts of buttons - vintage ones and mother-of-pearl ones,
fabric, leather, wood, glass, modern, floral, plastic, metal, animals, plain, fancy, small, medium and large ones!

So if you'd like a chance to win this jar of lovely buttons just leave a comment on this post telling me how you found my blog and why you like it, it's as easy as that, one entry each
and i will pick the winner in a weeks time {18th May}

GOODLUCK!

Domestic House Kat said...

Yay on 100 posts, you beautiful, gorgeous lady!!

I think I genuinely first met you through Crafteroo so it would have been from there that I have been subjected to your button porn...ahem blog.

:-)

Tess said...

I follow the button floozies blog and so that would be how I found you. HOw I found the button floozy blog I have no idea. I love buttons, all shapes and sizes, all kinds. And I like seeing people using buttons in unusual ways, like eyes on a doll or the center of a flower for a mixed media collage. I would love to win your buttons.

Congratulations on 100 posts! I have been following your blog for a while and I'm not sure exactly where I found you; it was either through the Button Floozie's blog, which I follow but can't join because there aren't enough spaces; or it was through the blog Vintage Patina; or, it might have been through Joanie Huffman's blog!

Bev said...

TheEccentricLady said...

Congrats! I found you on Button Floosie! All those cute buttons caught my eye. Then I saw the cute jar too. Why are we drawn to these crazy things? I think I am because My Mom was a seamstress and they bring back good memories of her for me.

Congrats on your 100th post. Why i saw the name somewhere and well, if you could see the buttons i have collected (the shell are my personal favorites) you would know why I was here.

Anyway i have you link on my blog and love seeing all your lovely buttons and the great ideas you have for using them.

Congratulations! :D Ever since we were partnered up for the toadstool swap, I love checking up on your latest projects. :)

Cathy said...

I wish I could remember how I found your blog. I love it though as it brings back memories of a tin my mom has with all kinds of old buttons. I can remember looking through it when I was young. Come to think of it, I need to ask my mom if she still has it.

Whizzz said...

I 'found' you via MN & love your button obession, it's a bit like my beady obsession. Well done on reaching 100 :-)

pennydog said...

I found your blog when I joined Crafteroo and you've been in my blog feeds since! I like the variety you have to offer the reader :)

Hello Doll
I am a perpetual blog surfer, perhaps that has something to do with the fact that I am new to blogging. But I read peoples blogs, I follow them and click a couple of comments that look cool or perhaps have cool blog names. I usually am drawn to creative types, which I see that is exactly what you are. I came here from your button floozies account. So happy 100th to you deary. I love your content and your etsy shop is the bomb. Your so talented.
Brittany
I follow you now.
I am hosting an arty giveaway to end this weekend.

Your little jar of buttons is cute...maybe 51 will be my lucky number...*elaine*
