Button, Button...

Who has the Button.
Do your remember that game..  I have to admit I know the saying but I really don't 
remember the game.   And I have lots and lots of buttons if you need any!
I am back today with the City Crafter Challenge for this week!
Kirsty is our host this week and has come up with an amazing challenge.

No it's not Buttons..  I know that's what you are thinking..

She wants us to
 "DRESS UP A JAR"
Sounds pretty fun, Right!



Once again I had so many idea swimming around in my head.
And this is what I ended up with I pretty little Jar for my Buttons..



When I was thinking about how to dress up my jar the first thing that
came to mind is a crochet dollie. 




And then lots and lots of pretty little flowers.. 






Then of course Lots of pretty Buttons to fill my Jar!





I must admit it came together way easier than I thought it would..
And I had a blast making this.  Now I want to try another!!!

Thanks Kirsty.. 

If you would like to play along with us this week it should be pretty fun!
I can't wait to see what everyone comes up.
To get all the details on this challenge or to see what the other DT have
come up with you can hop on over to 


Thanks so much for stopping by!  All your comment mean so much to me!

Hugs, Linda
