You wouldn't believe how many buttons I have,yet labor to even try to put one on and have a seamstress.Here in the Midwest, the river gave to a button industry with fresh water oysters.I would think the same on the Great Lakes.
Woof! Woof! It means more DUKE posts. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
Love your assortment of buttons, Ann!
We agree with Sugar! MORE DUKE please!!
lol...BUTT on any given day, your blog is always a delight. Even this one. I have my buttons in a coffee can...I like how YOU have yours displayed tho.And, now after reading your friends Monday post, I'm on my way to visit Maire.
I love those close-up shots - I think they work realy well with "industrial" subjects...Now there is an idea for a photo series - close-up and interesting angle shots of household machines...Wonder what the inside of a food processor would look like shot from the top...
Buttons are ace. I have a big tin of odd buttons which my Mum gave to me when I left home. We used to play with them when we were children and since then My children have played with them too...there are some very unusual ones. Happy memories!!
You have a terrific button collection! I wish I could sew. But I can't. :(xo Catherine
Hope you get to sewing something! My old machine has packed in - at the busiest crafting season of the year!!
I have a button collection too Ann. And you know what - I still have my mom's buttons and they are so valuable to me. Sandie
you are not, this is great and one i would have done if i had a sewing machine and 3 jars of buttons... so there... because you could and DID you have ideas. I for one LOVE IT
What a great way to store your buttons. I need something more effective that dropping them into a drawer.
lol I am sure you will think of something! How about that goulash recipe?lol
Cool post....I know how you feel....sometimes I just can't think of a thing to talk about....hard to believe, isn't it?
All you need to do is tell Duke to do a post. He always steps up to the plate and does a fabulous job. I'm just saying.Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)
Hmm, if only you had an impossibly cute little ball of white fluff to inspire you...
I have a button collection too! I don't really sew, but I do want to learn how. :)
Love your button jars! The machine macro shot is great, too.
LOL...when you run out of ideas that is when true creativity kicks in....
I don't even know how to sew on a button. Pretty sad huh? Bet Duke would help with a post!
This reminds me of my best friend from when I was a kid - she used to always say "sew buttons on your underwear" or "sew buttons on your ice cream cone" whenever someone said so. Silly.
Crazy girl.... With your creativity, you should never run out of blog ideas... You can continue showing off some of your wonderful projects... I'll bet you have lots of Christmas ones started....AND--what about Duke??? I heard him crying since you never feature him on your blog anymore... Poor Baby.... ha ha ha Hugs,Betsy
ROFL!! You SO gave me an idea for future post(s). Thanks! :)
Your jars are so clean and bright! I suppose one has to clean occasionally to reach that state.
WOW your closeups are amazing!
Thoughts, opinions, constructive criticism, it's all good to me. I will delete all spam comments however, so don't even bother trying!
