Re: How to Turn Blah Buttons into Bodacious Buttons

I knew there was a reason why I've hung onto all these old white buttons for so long - that some day I could justify this habit!

Thanks! Off to get Sharpies!

Re: How to Make a Valentine from an Onion

Am delighted to discover this site - never mind what latecomer I am!

The only thing I've used onion skins for is dying eggs - I was so disappointed the one year I used the yellow skins for their gorgeous color - and my eggs just looked like brown eggs when I was done.

This box is fabulous - and your photos of the onions so lucious.

I have always loved Valentine's Day - from the time I was in first grade and we decorated the box to receive the class valentines with crepe paper. I loved the cookies my mom would make with raspberry jam between them and icing on top. I loved picking out valentines for each of my classmates - trying to match each to the person. So while I'm grateful for my dear husband, even when I was single, I loved the day. I still like to send valentines to my friends - it's another opportunity to tell them how I love them.
