When I was at the Red Shed this past weekend for their Saturday sale,
I stumbled across these jars.
They were selling them filled with old vintage buttons.
I like the size, shape and design of them.
They are square with fluting and have
that little flared flange at the bottom.
I think they are interesting. The buttons are cool too.
Do you want to know why they really caught my eye?
Look closely. Do you see the etched writing on the bottom?
That's a family name.
My great-grandmother was Mamie Woods.
My grandmother was Myrtle Lou Liza Woods (before she was married).
I know you all will want to write down that unique name
for any future little girls you may have :)
I'll probably keep one of these jars and give one to my cousin for Christmas.
The lids on the jars are new. I don't know much about the jars but
it doesn't matter to me. They look vintage and bear a family name.
That makes them especially cool in my book.
I think I've finally decided on a blog name.
I'm kind of excited about it.
I'll probably share it this weekend.
