Shiny New Button

My blog has a button! Warmest thanks to my talented and very treasured husband for "spinning" my wacky assortment of “straw” into a sparkle-y widget. [See it at right & wait a second or three . . . ] But why a troll? Well, when I paint or sand in our dark, cavernous basement I often joke that I feel like a troll—toiling away under ground. Of course when I do these things in the daylight, I feel more like an elf!

Your new button is so cute! I didn't know you sold your pretties. I saw that Cynthia had purchased your shutters. They are wonderful!

Oh that is so cute! and I know how you feel too about being in the basement doing your thing....that's where I was banished when I was painting furniture, but I kinda loved that little place :)

Im adding it to my page! so perfect!
