Still Life of Buttons

Now that we are caretaking, Paul and I have really reduced the amount of “stuff” in our lives.  Still, there are some things that provide enough comfort to warrant schlepping cross-country (several times over, in my case).  We both have a bit of a book fetish.  Maybe one of these days we will learn to appreciate reading via Kindle but I really, truly doubt it. 

I collect other stuff also, like beads, cards, essential oils, and photos, of course!   Stuff that takes up a lot less space than books.

Now, for some reason, I am finding myself really drawn to buttons.  Not quite sure what started it.  Maybe the button Emily sewed on the purse she made me before we left for the Cape.  Or was it before that?  I have always liked buttons, but never in an addictive type way.  Now, I feel I need more buttons in my life.  I don’t know what I will do with them once I have them but am positive an amazing project will indeed present itself. 

And you, what do you collect?  You can answer this question even if I already know – it will make it more fun for the group!  And, speaking of fun, you have three more days to comment on a January blog to qualify for the drawing of the mystery prize…
