BUTTONS and a Warning

When Mike comes to visit he always has packed in his one small suitcase (for two weeks mind you) the few-- and I really try to keep it to a few :) things I've ordered or whined long enough he brings to shut me up. :) Well hopefully that's not the case :( But he always has a few "things" he says just shout out my name as he goes by. This trip it was a cool bag o buttons. Nothing very special just buttons you would find sitting in your mom's or grandma's button tin. Like any other junk addict I had my coveted buttons. But when faced with having to fit our lives into the 5'/8' trailer to move here, I gave all my buttons to my sister :( Now I wish I was limber enough to be able to kick my own back side!! Ahhhhh Mike's score is a good start on a new stash :)

Along with the buttons there was a bunch of these funny little plastic thingies, figures, I'm not sure. But they are darn cute and you know a Junk Addict's pledge, All together now- "I'm sure I can do something with it"!!

These are all about picnics. You really can't see but the yellow glasses have ice cubes in them, bag of peanuts, cake and cup cake. You know all the necessities for a picnic :) I think the water melon is there just to keep the picnic police happy:)

Look there's even these teeny tiny ants. :) No kidding the ants on the patio are bigger then these guys!!

A few hearts. The three little ones remind me of faded Valentine heart candies. Can you see where they have Hug Me on them??

These must be for my Australian Bloglandian sisters (I'm sure there must be a couple of guy Bloglandians also). The way I understand it the slang would be Bloggie's ?

Now here's a real treat. I'm thinking there is more pink things in this picture then there is in the rest of the house. A pink kinda girl I'm not. :)

Oh my goodness look at the time, why it's getting so very late. Here it is the 8th of the month and I still haven't put together the teddies' outfits for The Mad Hatter Tea Party at The Fanciful Twist. Mustn't tarry......

Oh yeah the warning!!!! Look down see there is a little video all ready to play??? This is the first picture's this Grandmum has seen of little Dylan getting up getting up, rocking back and forth and, and....... nope not quite but then tomorrow is another day :)

As for the warning if you don't want to see the cutest baby boy don't press the start button. But then look what you will miss


Have a most audacious today or tomorrow depending on where in the world you are ;)

He is so cute! Thanks for sharing this video. My husband went and took care of Alton today for the parents. He is 4 months old, and certainly can't do this yet. He is wanting to move and grab and hold things so badly, my husband says he is getting quite frustrated~LOL.
