I do LOVE buttons!
The first hand work I ever remember doing was sewing buttons on an old dishcloth with my "Oma." She loved needlework.
What a sweet memory! And what I wouldn't do to have all her buttons now!
So when I discovered Rebecca Sower's art in the past several weeks (yes, I know, I must be the last person on the planet to discover her . . . or at least here in Blogland!), the thing that I found most enchanting is her random, pensive, and whimsical use of buttons.
I'm inspired. I have lots of buttons. I have ideas. I have lots of inspirational ideas about buttons.
Youngest Daughter and I started a sorting game . . . shiny black buttons, warm brown buttons,buttons that looked like daisies and little friends and juicy raspberries and deep blue bowls.
And when all were sorted, we pinned them up on my cork board and felt very productive and very tingly happy and very, very inspired.
I feel a project coming on!
