often I mention how generous and wonderful my blog friends are, I am overdue thanking some special friends that do not happen to have blogs….last month I think it was, a talented group of quilters I am lucky enough to hang out with, The Woolie Nuts (don’t ask LOL), had a gathering to beat all gatherings all about buttons AND I had to miss it….sniff sniff.
Monica came into LOTS of wonderful buttons and wanted to share them with the group…Yippee Yeah!!!
have I mentioned I am crazy about buttons, I even have a button purse that I bought, people always ask if I made it
Monica was gracious enough to pack up huge zip lock bags of buttons for those of us that could not make it that evening…I believe they weighed in at around three pounds each!!!
I spent several evenings with a tray on my lap sorting buttons by color….why…..it’s a good excuse to touch the buttons and they look nice grouped together, also handy for when I decide to use some….for now I am just enjoying looking at them…stirring them with my finger now and then
just imagine, ten or fifteen times as many buttons as this arranged in bowls LOTS of bowls…..just had to share my special glass of pink buttons with you, they almost look good enough to eat 🙂
while I am saying thank you, I must thank all of the thoughtful Woolie Nuts for bringing me tins, magazines, labels, treasures too good to throw away, plants and so much more
most recently, Sue gifted me with this latest bit of found treasure
it looks like it might fit a barbie size doll….we had some good giggles wondering what the rest of her costume looked like…..do you think it was pink?
it looks like a child (we’re thinking) chewed on the toe
pretty darn nice of friends to be so thoughtful (like my Mr Magpie) and rescue items for me all the time… how special is that!!!
here is something also very unique
as a person who has never ever colored her hair I am really intrigued with these hair color samples
