Incase you are wondering… The Golden Button did not disappear or anything…

It looks that way… because we took down the signs so they don’t smash anything in the storm.

I hope you are all safe and home with your families. Please be careful and make the best of your day off.

(If you have one)

I have recounted the Button Jar and will announce the winners of the Button Jar and the Facebook giveaway this week!!!!
