I generally amass things with the intent that I am actually going to use them but I may have a hard time parting with any of my buttons.
I've actually increased my glass button collection about fifty times over since I last posted about it. I found a couple lots on Etsy. But now that I have them I think I'm going to have a hard time parting with any - or using them in my intended project.
As far as collections go buttons do have the advantage of not taking up very much space. It's not like I'm trying to collect turbine engines or totem poles.
Isn't this lady pretty? Kelly gave her to me - she appears to be the top to a bottle. I was trying to figure out something to do with her but I kind of like her just hanging out with the buttons. Her patina matches the mother of pearl ones.
So no one got the spider web reference on my Maine scrapbook page. Charlotte's Web takes place on a farm in Maine. The honey bee is the state insect (who knew states had an official insect representing them?). Blueberries - obvious. Lobsters - obvious. Beach - obvious (although Chris who has a Maine cottage says is doesn't look like a Maine beach. I think the Maine tourism board was taking liberties and may have borrowed a picture from one of their southern neighbors). The house is Stephen King's mansion in Bangor. Oh and the cat is a Maine Coon cat.
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. It is supposed to get up to 106 degrees here today. Good day to stay inside and count buttons.
