Sailing...

I picked up this lovely old tin container, small storage bin and box of doilies and lace for only $4.00 for the lot. The container alone was a treasure, but inside... it was filled with buttons! Every hand full I pulled out had mother of pearl buttons in it. The plastic baggie is filled entirely with mother of pearl buttons from the tin container.... *joy* I love-love mother of pearl buttons! I also picked up some jewelry... and these too.....Fun shopping~ *wink*

I need to go sale hopping with you - you find lots of great bling.
Actually I need to use some of the things I have now instead of looking for more.
Enjoy your evening.

Me again. :D Thanks for stopping by and nice comment on the necklace. Right now my work space is the dining table. What you are not seeing is the whole messy table.:D I need to come up with a better place, so I don't have to put everything away every time more than a couple people are here to eat.

You scored! I was at a thrift shop yesterday and they were selling just a few buttons per ziploc bag for $4 a piece!
