some last weekend things

so a few weeks ago i found a huge grab bag with odds and ends and a whole bunch of these patriotic buttons in it, and i remembered i had one of these PIF images from Heavensent ( Thanks Collette) colored and while i was poking around in my colored images tin spotted this background and so this was actually a very fast card for me probably a 30 minute one. :) its 5X7 in real life. the ribbons are unknown the wide white satin came to me in my exchange gift box from Alison, ( thanks so much!) the girl is colored with pencils and cut with an nestiblities die, the real red cardstock is heat embossed with ranger seafoam white the su. soft swirls background. the blue cardstock is from Bazzill.
the day i went to work late and went to yard sales with Alice last friday found this yarn basket at one place for 4.00 and a mess of paper back books at another. ( my goodreads to read list is huge) figure i will get around to these books as it cools off and there is not so much to do outside.
an how it works shot. cool eh?
These i found at one last saturday when Tim and i were out and fun thing he actually found lures at the same sale. ( hasn't seen Lures in a loooong time at a yardsale) they are usually one of the first things to sell at them.
bought them because they were square ( which i have not seen before) and my hand goes in easily. gotta get dressed have today's sales ripped out of the paper and have just enough time for a cuppajoe first.

What do you think that the odd opening in the lids are for, I wonder?
