A Bit of This and That

Just a bit of this and that today... My-oh-my! I do love my thrift store. If I keep bringing things home though I am going to need a bigger house!
My latest find was three of these button sample cards at $2 each. At the price of buttons now I think it is a bargain. Some of them are quite nice and they are all so nicely colour coordinated!



As requested in one of the recent comments - here is a photo of my nails. Yes - this is my little vanity! All summer I work like a man and all winter I pamper myself with girlie things. What does this lifestyle give me? Man hands with girlie nails! lol

And since I am so totally off topic today I thought I would share a couple pictures of the fur-kids. Duke the bloodhound is very photogenic and is starting to become a real ham! And, as you can see, the new kittens are fitting right in.

Great find on the button cards! I have "man hands" too but get no girlie breaks. We can't all be princesses. :) Love the bloodhound and kitten. So cute.

Wow! Those buttons are great .... I'm drooling all over my keyboard. The dog/kitty photos are so darned cute, you should have a caption contest. The first one could be "Can't Santa read? I said pretty hat NOT kitty cat". Susie

Great thrift store finds! And the fur kids are adorable. Had to laugh about your saying you have "man hands" with girly nails. You have very strong and talented hands with beautiful nails!

Love the button cards, your fantastic fancy nails -- but they are no competition for Duke and the kitty. Animal and baby photos always win.

Love the buttons. I keep a bag in some state of "fill" and do not allow myself to go to thrift store without the donation... Something has to go out before something can come in!!!!! I just live with ragged, jagged nails on sad hands with missing or damaged fingers... Go girlie girl!! Gerry

Oh now. Your hands do not look manly. The gold on the tips of your nails look great. Love your fur babies too. Now, where did ya get the button cards? I've never heard of them. PS I love your blog. Eileene

Hi Eileene - the button cards came from the thrift store. I think they are sample cards sent to stores so they can decide what to order.
Hugs,
