tidbits~weekend post!

This was my awesome birthday present from my mom!!!!  It holds water glasses but she put different wine glasses in it.  I vision it with different things in the glasses~ um..... like buttons!

buttons always make me happy~


During the holidays I'm thinkin' little glass ornaments or a bird nest ~I'll get back with you { when I do my JBS Hotel board Christmas style}!!!
  One more little tidbit~

Do you remember these?

This was my grandmother's chair. She paid 7 books of S & H green stamps for this chair in the mid 60's.  I remember thinking when she told me ~ 7 books for a chair, it must not be a very strong chair.  I have it my home and it so well built, will last a long time:):) I think things were made better back in the day!!!

Have a great holiday weekend~see ya soon!!

  5. fun post Connie! S&H Greenbax stamps..we have some around here somewhere. Now we shop at the "Piggly Wiggly" and they give S&H Greenbax but they calculate it onto your rewards card. We get discounts all the time.

  10. I love the gift you received from you mom, how clever to put the wine glass in it and buttons too. Oh yes, S&H green stamps bring back a lot of memories. We collected Blu Chip stamps too, but I think those were regional.

  11. That is soooo cool about the chair. They don't make furniture like they used to. I got a really cool rattan chest with some s&h stamps.

  12. Love the clever way you're displaying your button collection, it's always fun to have them out to enjoy. Oh yes, I remember S&H Green Stamps, it's no surprise that your grandmother's chair has lasted so long. Thanks for sharing at VIParty.
