Everyone loves surprises, well good ones anyway; not the water heater
is not heating anything, the car battery is dead,
or the patio set blew into the pool...again... kind of surprises...

There is a twofold purpose to this surprise.
One, to celebrate a milestone in my posting and two to
pronounce a genuine thank you to my Followers.
No sign ups were necessary, or comments to be left.
I randomly selected 2 numbers that I had
assigned to my Followers on the day of
reaching my milestones.

were selected. Each will receive a
winter white vintage button bracelet from me.
(please email me your address)

If there was a way to send each Follower a gift
from my heart I would gladly do so.
I am grateful to all who visit, who comment, who send me
delicious emails and make me laugh.


...and because they are white
I am linking up with Kathleen at Faded Charm
for White Wednesday. I've missed so many weeks,
it's nice to be back.

I like the way you do things - no convoluted method, just a simple thank you in the best possible way. Most inspiring!

Your bracelets are positively lovely! I have had a love affair with buttons since I was a little girl playing in my Grandma's button box. I inherited that box at her death and have never quite known what to do with them. They are too special to me to just sew them on a garment that might get thrown out. Hope you'll forgive me if I borrow your idea to make a bracelet or two- it would be such a sweet reminder of my wonderful Grandmother.
