Forget the flowers, now this bouquet really speaks to me.
The vase before I repurposed it...isnt it cool?
These jars make it so much easier to find just the right button to spice up any project.

My New Year's Challenge of no craft stores for 60 days is forcing me to get organized and go through and take an inventory of what I have on hand.  I have a ton of boxes filling up my garage, workshop and two large closets.  I have so many things that I totally forgot about so it has been fun.  I came across this cool vase and an old spice rack.  I love the vase and decided that since I don't get flowers daily, that I would put it to better use.   But, this is truly a bouquet to me!  I filled the spice jars with buttons.  I enlisted the help of my 5 and 2 year old boys who separated it by color.  It was a fun task for them and helpful for Mommy!  I love no cost decorating and organizing.
