Just being ME


Please say hello ... I love comments!

let's play count the buttons ...

Whilst I take a break to rest these old bones, I would like you all to have a guess at how many buttons are in this jar, and then leave your estimation as a comment. Keep looking in, as when I return, for whoever has guessed the closest, will be the lucky winner of a gold tone diamonte handbag mirror, not old but very pretty. This task will stretch the old brain I know, so to help you along a little, I will say there are between 140 to 240. In the event of more than one person leaving the same winning estimation, I shall put all relevant names in a hat and pick one out.

Good luck!
