Jars of Buttons
The sideboard in my dining room is filled with jars of buttons and pictures of family and friends. Every once in a while, I look through the jars and play with my buttons. It reminds me of when I was a kid going through my mom's old red and cream colored malted wafer tin filled with buttons. For those of you who keep/save buttons beware of keeping them in metal containers, as it effects the buttons and results in deterioration over a period of time. Also pictured is an old dental chest in one of the bedrooms that holds jars and boxes of buttons. Today is cloudy and a bit dreary. Rain is forecast until the end of the week. Off to breakfast with a friend, then to the frame shop to choose a frame for my most recent painting, then to facilitate a workshop on art with children for some young mothers.
