My treasure was I had such Friends....

if it weren't for you,
i wouldn't be able to do what I love to do everyday ~

create, design....dream.

So with Heartfelt Appreciation,

I'm giving this handmade
Memory Necklace,
"Tiny Buttons"

to one lucky winner...

...to be able to win,
please just leave a comment here on this post,

(the Vernal Equinox ~ otherwise known famously as the
First Day Of SPRING!!!)
I will randomly draw a name

You've all filled my heart in such a way
...with your constant support of my work,
and this is only a small way that I
may be able to repay the kindness given me...

...it is signed & dated on the backside)

Blessings from the Farm,
