A Valentine button giveaway

Thank you to wonderful Gerry, who is a Floozie and blogs over at Olderrose, for providing this beautiful hand painted button as a gift for one of you!
It's a beautiful original painting done by Gerry.
She painted it on a 1-3/8" plastic button
(although it looks like pearl, doesn't it?)
Simply wonderful, and I can't thank Gerry enough for giving it to one of you!
Be sure to visit Gerry's blog and read how she paints them on her tutorial.
Or, visit to see some of her spectacular crazy quilted art.
If you can't wait to win this button, you can always buy one or 12 in her Etsy shop!

Thanks for the giveaway Laurie!
I work Tuesday-Saturday so Monday's are my day to do things- you should meet me and my friend Janet (we have been friends for 40 yrs) for lunch on a Monday. We try to go once a month- I also love buttons- I have my Great Grandmother Nonies button tin. I will email you when we go next time to see if you can join us-
In my thrift shop journeys I have found several hand painted mother of pearl .... sweet delicacies known as buttons. I am thinking of ways to use them on another scarf this year to celebrate Love. Have a beautiful weekend. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
