We Have A Winner!!!

Oh, so many of you guessed correctly!

I checked the times on both Thursdays post and Fridays post and the winner is, Julia who posted Friday morning at 9:57!

Yes, it's a frame for a special button:

Girl With Kitten Purse

My mother in law gave me that button a few years ago and I've been saving it for something special for myself. It has a high shank on it and I didn't want to flop around too much or get lost in all the other do-dads.

I went through my stash, looking for something that would help frame it or make it stand out. I found some of these little crocheted things:

Crocheted Ring

My mom said that there popular to make back in the 40's and 50's. They're little plastic or bone rings and women used to crochet around them and use them for light pulls and curtain tie-backs. Ok.

Anyway, I must have gotten some in some bag of stuff that I bought from a flea market one time and it occured to me when I saw them that I could handpaint them and then bead around them. So that's what I did! And my idea worked as you can see. It makes the button stand up and stand out!

So Julia who posted at 9:57 am on Friday morning, please email me with your address and I'll mail out your button frame. You can find my email link on my main Kitty & Me Designs website:

And if anyone else would like one, I did a few extras and you can find them here.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to post their guesses! I had a great time reading them all. This was so much fun, I'm now thinking of something I can do for another contest!

This is great! There are two things in your etsy shop I want, and if they are still there after the first, I'll be ordering. =) If not, I'm not supposed to have them.

Congrats Julia! lol... I think it's just beautiful. ANd I think it's neat that so many people came up with such great ideas of what COULD go into the center.... Brenda M. ps I've got some of the rings, but would have to learn how to crochet around them....
