Happy Birthday ! You are much younger than me . You see I remember when the Super Bowl started.
Amy , this is a giveaway right up my ally , I love old laces, and love to craft with them , these are yummy !

Linda ★ Parker's General said...

Happy Birthday, Amy! And Aunt Gertrude! Wow! Sharing your day with the Super Bowl! That's gotta be tough! Almost as bad as being born on Christmas! At least, it shouldn't happen often!
I am loving everything in this giveaway. I have a major love for buttons. I sort them by color. Then I change my mind and sort them by size. Next time, I sort them by style, or age or material they are made from. OK, I just love to play with my buttons!
And those tiny little mittens are so stinking cute! I gotta love them just because they are cute!
Sign me up, Sweetie!
BTW~you still a spring chicken compared to me! I am going to be a great-grandma in August!

Happy, Happy Birthday,
I hope your birthday is as wonderful as you! What a wonderful gift to give away to celebrate your birthday.
It is all so beautiful and so nostalgic. Your Aunt's yo-yo quilt piece made me think of my sweet grandmother who taught how to make the yo-yo s and how to stitch together when I was eight or nine. You brought back happy memories summers with my "Nana".
Thank you!

Happy Birthday! I share a birthday with my special neice, who is now 11. We tell people we are "twins born 41 years apart" since we are alike in so many ways!!! I got so excited when I saw this giveaway because lace and ribbons are my very favorite things in this world! I do heirloom sewing, and really love the quality of the cotton and french laces that are extremely hard to find these days. And, oh my, you can never have enough buttons! I would just love to jump through the screen and touch all those beautiful items, but I guess I will have to wait & hope you draw my name and then I will be beside myself with joy. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity to enter this giveaway!

Oh, and I do enjoy your blog too!

Hey, Amy. Happy Birthday. I would LOVE to win your giveaway. Yummy! Yummy! Now, I don't mean to rub your winter weather in, but . . . I sure don't miss living in Iowa. Since last writing you, I have moved from Las Vegas to Florida. Don't like it here, but is wonderful to be near my son. I miss Las Vegas so much. Am in hopes of visiting the Quad Cities this summer. Miss Rudy's Tacos. Don't have a blog yet; may get the nerve in the near future. Take care, my friend.
