Well fancy that. Blogger flipped all of my pictures, with the exception of family. At least they were kind enough to leave us on our feet!
Over the weekend I visited a few Estate Sales. At one, I bought a Lot of Grandma's stuff - crochet thread, ribbons, tatting, etc. for $9. I thought most of it would be passed along, but Grandma had good taste. I will be keeping much of it.
But now I have to organize it. These are some of the buttons that were in the bag. Should I keep them on cards? Or remove them?
I inherited my mom's button box. I've sorted through much of it, but this is how the bulk of the "leftovers" are stored. Do you have an unsorted button box? Is it just for fun? Or do you try to actually use the contents?
I've also got some "special" buttons, which have been sorted into boxes by color. But I find that they are a pain to get to, and then I just play with them. I feel bad about using them.
I'm looking for suggestions on how to make my button collection "user friendly." I know a lot of you don't do buttons...I don't do them much either, but sometimes I just gotta have them. ;)
Finally, here is a picture taken this weekend. All of the kiddies gathered from various parts of CA and met in Fresno for 7 hours. Then it was home again, home again, jiggity jig. oh well. We treasure the time we have together, knowing that it is scarce.
(This was taken in a restaurant, an hour from home.)
And I guess that's a wrap. Button comments? Anyone? Help? :)
