We made buttons bouquets yesterday and had so much fun. I got the idea from Kiddley.I am getting some fun ideas there. We took old bottles and I printed up this saying
"A button's place is in the home!"
and added paper strip to the bottle. It was soooo easy. The quote came from a little button book I have.
" A button's place in in the home !
on the pillow, on wearths, on quilts, on curtians"
We also made Oatmeal Gingerbread Muffins. The reason most of my muffin recipes had both butter and a little oil is butter adds flavor, but a little oil makes a much moister muffin.
