  1. I loved my gift! And you know this girl can't get enough a good deal, so I think it is GREAT! :-)

  2. That is really clever! I have some round doily-things (I think they are Battenburg Lace) that came from my Grandmother's sewing stash. They have to be at least 40 years old. Plus I have some antique buttons. At last, I finally have an idea what to do with them. Thanks!
