Buttons and lace

Did you notice my new sidebar buttons?

I love them!

I was going to change to a three column layout,
but thought better of that with my slow dial up
so for now I just had Karen make me some pretty

{ you thought I was going to talk about
vintage buttons didn't you? *smile*}

a vintage lace covered jelly jar
that I made just for me ~
{sometimes we need to keep at least
one item that we make. lol.}
Canisters full of old lace and vintage hankies ~ lace scarves that I found at the antique mall for $1.00 each...I bought all three.
They are very long and just gorgeous.
The two white scarves have this
*paper white* label
and another tag that says,

"entirely hand made lace
100% cotton
made in Brazil"...

they are so beautiful!

Wishing you a gorgeous Thursday.
It is over 80 degrees here today in
Michigan. YAY!

Thought for the day:

*God is so big that He can cover the whole world
with His love and so small He can curl up inside
your heart*

The new buttons look very nice on your blog.

I bet you have trouble getting into some blogs because I have trouble from time to time and I don't have dial up. Especially blogs with music and lots of other stuff. There's one blog I really liked, but every time I try to go there it freezes up my computer, so I don't even try anymore.

Beautiful lace! The buttons are great ~ I added a few new features on my layout too!


Love your altered jar. I wonder what you will keep in it? Those laces you picked up for a dollar each are a steal.. I am a bit jealous!
Have a great weekend.
