...I'm lost without my little man! I'll drop him off this morning, they'll call me later to pick him up...but geez is this going to be a weird day!
Did you know I have a fetish (or two - or three)? I LOVE buttons. I guess it all started when I was little...my granny used to have jars & tins full of buttons, I used to play with them. Organize them by size, color, shape and number of holes. I have a jar of buttons that was my Granny's ~ it still smells like her house. I still collect buttons today, when we visit antique shops the first thing I start looking for are buttons. I have buttons dating back to the mid-19th Century (did you know that Goodyear made buttons before they ever made tires? I have some in my collection), handmade buttons and buttons I've taken off of items before turning them into rags (something my Granny used to do..."waste not-want not" as she used to say), I've even picked lost buttons up off the street. Will I ever use them...probably not. But hey, if you ever need a button...
Here are a couple of my latest acquisitions:
When The Yarn Lounge posted about them I called immediately! Aren't they cute?! Then they posted more...I shoulda waited, hopefully we'll be going to Richmond soon! Dani, check out the Maple Leaf buttons!
Love me some buttons!!
Can't wait till they call me to pick up Rudy....
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!
