A couple of weeks after I received the buttons (see last post), my sister called me again and said she had too many beads. Is that possible???

Recently, my sister callled me to say that she had bought some buttons and there were more than she needed. Did I want some?  Duh! She knew I did!! So I stopped by to visit one evening and while Mom napped, Debie and I sorted buttons. Then she gave me some of every design.


These are really sweet. All hand painted, wooden buttons.

What shall I use them for...?


Trying something new, here -- delayed posting. I might have more (though sometimes less wordy) posts, if this works.

Christmas Chaos

Which is actually pretty normal for me. I keep trying to get organized (for the past 50+ years), but it never seems to stick for more than a day or two ... and I don't mean just for Christmas. I'll keep working on it because it scares me how bad it might be if I never tried!

Tree is up, but no decorations, yet. Hopefully, this weekend. I've started to play my Christmas music to get me in the proper mood. I got a new Steampunk Christmas album and I really love it, but I also love all the old songs and renditions, too.

This is  the only time I really miss snow. What I remember from my childhood (teens)  is shopping (on foot, no car) in the snow. It was always peaceful to come out of the store to the sounds of  Christmas in the snowy twilight (or night). I miss that. But I hope to do much of my shopping right here in Salem so I can walk from store to store and keep the driving to a minimum.

On to projects...
