This morning I decided to bring out my favorite basket in the house and put it on the new old green table.
This basket is rather fragile, as it is about a hundred years old. It's big....13" x 26."
And, it's wonderful!
So, I wondered for a bit as to what, if anything, I would put in it.
And, then it came to me...
I rounded up as many buttons as I could, having a stash of them in several places in the house.
I wanted them to be mostly white, off-white, or Mother-of-Pearl.
With a few exceptions.
For instance, not there yet, but I am going to put some larger brown ones in there.
I also added a big spoon.
For gathering up a handful at a time.
I will add more when I find more.
I will enjoy choosing buttons for a project when needed.
No way I can fill it.
#1, it would take so many more.
#2, it's already heavy, so more would make it impossible to pick up the basket.
#3, I don't want to damage the basket.
So, what do you think?
Right now it is a fun thing to look at and it's always fun to run your hands through a bunch of buttons.
Does there need to be any other reason?
until next time
