My Prize Project!

Ever since I flipped through that 'spaces' book I have had in my mind to create a button-gumball machine. Well-I found this beauty at a Garage Sale 2 weeks ago and had it transformed within 6 hours! Let me show ya.....




You know I L-O-V-E BUTTONS! I mean, LOVE them (I'd swim in them if I could....)

These are SOME of the button jars awaiting a new home...

I had to disassemble the whole thing (and yea-good thing it doesn't need to be functional, as I had a few extra pieces when it went back together)!










I set up a spray station out front. WATERMELON is the color of choice-and due to their poor trail choice-there are a few pink ants out front now! :D







I REALLY LOVE BUTTONS!!!! This is Buttons....









And-after all of that and some BLING-HERE WE GO!




Isn't she a BEAUTY?! I tied a few coordinating ribbons on the stand too. I just LOVE this and it's so visually pleasing to look up at too! STELLAR!







Here it is in it's place, in all it's beauty!
