Friday Flea Market Fundraiser

Hi everyone! Please visit my second blog http://www.suziebuttonsellsonfriday.blogspot.com/ to see the offerings I have this week! 100% of the profits this week and through the month of September are going to be donated for Stephanie and Christian Nielson, she's a young wife, mother and blogger from www.nieniedialogues.blogspot.com who was involved in a serious accident. If you see anything you would like to purchase please first email me at purrpage3@verizon.net or leave a comment and I'll confirm and have you pay through PayPal by clicking on Donate to Nie that is on the blog. I will only charge you for shipping separately.
My girlfriend, Gail, has also made a couple items and has donated to help out. I think you'll like what she has given me to sell! I will have all the items listed by 9 a.m. Friday hopefully. Please keep this young family in your prayers also as they go through a recovery process. Suzie Button

I love mirrors crafting

I saw this simple vintage mirror at a local antiques store, you know the kind of mirror, those hospital pull out mirrors, and I thought, hmm, for $2.50, I can maybe craft this into something a little more attractive! So I went to the beautiful blue spray paint can and that made it instantly spark! And then I used some of my crepe ribbon to bring it all together and added a sweet little girl image to set it off. I think it turned out so adorable! And it cheers up my office.
Happy Wednesday! Suzie Button

Sweet Friends!

Last week my friends and I were able to finally get together and we celebrated my recent birthday! Below are the gifts they gave me. My crafty friend Gail made me the top picture, it's so beautiful! I just love it!
And my other crafty and sweet friend Maria got me this gorgeous picture we found at the local antique store in McKinney, TX! It's so me, and is so lovely on my family room wall.
Thank You, my dear friends!
