I am excited to have new friends and readers of my blog and this giveaway has been fun! Karen Mertens and I have so many similar interests and one of them is collecting buttons. When I drew her name this morning, it didn't take long to pick out a selection of old and new buttons for her from my collection. Notice the button card on the top. It sold for 10 cents! In addition to the buttons, I'm sending her a vintage handkerchief and a wire bird's nest pendant that I made. Karen, please send me your mailing address by email.
