Playing with buttons...

I'm sure there's something more important and productive that I could be doing today but I guess I don't feel like it. So... I'm watching old Andy Hardy movies on Turner and playing with my vintage button collection :)

I had a wonderful holiday with friends and family! I hope you did too! My 'little' brother flew in from Chicago and it was SO nice to see him on Christmas day :) The weather has been snowy here in Seattle and our plans had to be rearranged a bit but all-in-all it worked out fine.

On Christmas eve, I went with my sweetie and his mom to a family friend's house which is a tradition that I've had the pleasure of being included in for the last 6 years or so. This family friend is so sweet and fun and her home is absolutely wonderful :) Could be right out the pages of a Cottage Living magazine. Most everything is vintage and she loves and uses it everyday. Every year I think about asking her if I could take some photos of her beautiful home but I always feel a little funny about it so I don't. We draw names each Christmas for a gift exchange and she had my name two years in a row ~ lucky me!  Two of my favorite vintage pottery pieces were gifts from her :) One is the pink pitcher in my studio pictured in my post from Nov. 27th... cute!

Hey Miss Angela,

Those button photos are great...you should consider making them (the photos, that is) into cards or something like that ~ love those colour combos.

Happy New Year to you and your Christmas sounds like it was lovely.

Ciao,

Suzanne

I can never get enough buttons in my life either. What a great colorful collection. Makes me want to dance my fingers through them! Looks like Seattle has had a bit of snow as well as we Midwesterners! Winter never ends here...

Thank you, ladies, for the positive comments! I like the idea of making prints of them... the thought had occured to me, but I wasn't sure if it was really a good idea because my perception is blurred by my affection for my collection ~ lol :)
