Just because I felt like it

Why decorate tins? Well, why not! We've been keeping them around the house and have a pile in the basement. So, I got out some bits of fabric and poured out my white buttons and had fun decorating them. But, I need to hit AC Moore and get some fabric glue and mod podge- my stash was quite slim. The AC Moore near us was just redone and it looks like they have some nice new lines,,,yes I am just looking for a reason to go back!
 I went to a local quilt show this weekend and they have a great White Elephant Sale- fill a zip lock bag for only $1.00. There were mountains of fabric to sort thru which was fun. Plus they had bags of notions, and UFO's. I found bags of old trim which I used on the tins. The 70's kind of look is the most fun to use! I spent about $ 12.00 and had bags and bags of good useful things.  The fabric and trim are my new finds!
