    Rutherford B. Hayes was elected when Blumenthall Lansing was founded. That is a great site which I’d never seen before. They have got some absolutely adorable Christmas projects too. Great site. Thanks for the heads up on this one. Definitely going to be bookmarking them.

    Lovely buttons, and Rutherford B. Hayes (which, by the way, is an awesome name. I’d name a dog Rutherford in a minute… Imagine how great it would sound when you are yelling at him to get the heck out of the trash can!)
