Mother’s Day is just around the corner and everyone at The Vintage Button in downtown Aledo thinks it’s the perfect time to celebrate Moms.  There are 2 ways you can celebrate your mom. First, The Vintage Button is holding a “My Amazing Mom” contest. This contest is open to all ages. To enter, you simply need to stop by The Vintage Button and pick up your official 8” x 10” artist canvas  which will have room for you to draw a picture of your mom and say a few words about why you love her. The drawing can be done in crayon, colored pencil, pen, chalk, whatever you want to use is ok by us. Return your completed drawing to The Vintage Button by Friday, May 6. The names of all the artists will go into a drawing and a winner will be chosen on Saturday, May 7 during The Vintage Button Garden Party. The winner of “My Amazing Mom” contest will receive a $25 gift certificate to The Vintage Button and a gift certificate to The Liberty Station Steakhouse. The works of art will be on display throughout the Button House for everyone to view. 

Another fun way we’re celebrating mom is by having everyone share  “Mom’s Best Advice.” You may do so on The Vintage Button Facebook page or by dropping it off at the store. The advice can be heartfelt or funny and is meant to create a smile, laugh or great memory for all those who read them. Feel free to put the name of your mom with her advice so we can give her credit for her words of wisdom, or it can be anonymous if you prefer. We will take these pieces of advice and post them around The Vintage Button for everyone to enjoy. If you have questions about the “My Amazing Mom Contest” call us at 309-582-7007. The Vintage Button is located at 105 N. College Ave., Aledo.
