Turtle of the Day - All Buttoned Up

Looky what I found in the clearance bin at JoAnn's???

The crazy thing is that I never noticed these when they were somewhere else in the store at full price - but found them as I was pawing around a big basket of clearance items.

There was a wonderful selection of Americana buttons - all painted ceramic like these - chickens, pigs, cows, schoolhouses - but I really did not have a use for them so I did not get any. I kept digging past those and found these in the bottom of the basket (sometimes it pays to be persistent.)

I was able to get 2 cards of the turtles (yes - LSS I got some for YOU!), one BIG one that is a lion (same soft colors), and one card of the dolphins.

Why dolphins? Well, I've got a friend who really really really likes dolphins, and I thought she needed these - so they are now in an envelope on their way to her mailbox. She will probably see this post before they get to her - so SURPRISE!!!

Those are so very cool. A trip to Jo-Anns to scour their sale bins just might be needed for me too.

OOO! I like those. You said you were going to stick to your list and not let anything jump into your basket. I'm so glad you didn't listen! Looking forward to a nice package of goodies.
