A beautiful gift arrived for me...love it! Lucky me :-)
And of course its full of glitz and shine. My Pfarkel name is Flashy after all....
There was no significance to the year 2008 when she created it. But you could say its a nod to the year my son graduated. I guess that might symbolize a new journey for us, with minus the one child at home.
And of course every tree has to have a star on the top!
A little more bling and bobbles...
And finally hung up and displayed for all to see!
Heres another gift from my Cuz from a previous visit...
...along with this button tree comprised of buttons from my Grandmother...another love!

Lucky me I have a very creative cousin, Vickie. She's been making art with vintage buttons for awhile now and I was the fortunate recipient of this jem. I just couldn't help but share it with my fellow Junkers...what do you think? Do you love it as much as I do? Great job, Cuz!

CottageElements writes: Thanks, y'all! StrangeCargo, I do have a very generous cousin! I sent her a picture of one I saw, and poof, she made one for me! Lucky to have her as my cuz! Georgia, I remember as a young girl my aunts made these. I guess they would be considered vintage now. I always loved them and I'm so glad they have made a comeback.
