Button Bracelet

I won this beautiful Button Bracelet from a giveaway at Speckled Egg, http://www.speckled-egg.blogspot.com/
There was a show and a giveaway and I entered and won....it is so pretty, the picture does not do it justice....The artist is Barbara Burkard from WI..
Thanks....I was very excited to receive this..

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day yesterday...My parents and kids all live in NC, so I was feeling a little down but I talked to all of them and felt better...Hubby took me out to eat and to Lowes where he bought me a metal trellis and a metal oblisk and 3 different clematis vines...So I spent the evening planted the vines and some grape hycian bean plants that I had grown from seeds...I will post a pic when they...grow up...lol..

I also spent 3 hours watching the final episodes of Suvivor..
