blog banner faerie was here!

okay, what do you think about my new blog banner, i ADORE it!! that talented heather bluhm aka the blog banner faerie was at it again...i had asked her to create something new, not that i didnt love my old(she created that also) but just wanted a new look and she told me she was just messing around with stuff and that it was just
something simple.....it is GORGEOUS in my best singing voice!! if you need something spectacular, give heather a LOOK SEE!!! i swear you will not be disappointed!!! vintage buttons
are the best, i love to hold them in my hand especially the ones that still have the threads attached, i just wonder where they have come from and how they ended up separated from their article of clothing and into my hands....someday i will share how i house all my buttons that i have collected.......

okay, i just picked up this book called Stories in Stone by Douglas Keister.. it is a field guide to cemetery symbolism and iconography...it has all the hidden meanings depicted on cemetery monuments and shows lots of pictures..it is very cool and since i have been visiting many this summer, i had to have it!!!well, that is all for now...goodnight everyone...

Beautiful banner. I have loads of vintage buttons I have picked up over the years. I use them in lots of different ways, including sewing them for decoration onto afghans that I make!

I think that Stories in Stone book is one I have always wanted...that or some other book about cemetery monuments. I think they are so lovely!!!! Glad you got the book.

Book Swap!!! What a great read! I really like the banner too, but I never thought of you as a button freak...rhinestone jewelry freak maybe, but buttons? See I have much to learn about you my dear. Enjoy the read, enjoy your new showcase!

love it love it love it! I've had every intention of using vintage buttons as clasps for my crochet bracelets... but they're so darn hard to part with! Hope your daughter is feeling better. And enjoy your new book!
