|Contents of Aunt Margaret’s button box|
ALTERNATE POST TITLE: How to Tempt Poor Little Rocky
I am beginning a project which I will post a bit about from time to time. I won’t be able to be particularly specific– Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat, and all– but I will share parts of it with my reader(s).
The project– actually there are three projects, no, technically six, no, three sets of two– requires buttons and ribbons and other fun things. So last evening I got out Aunt Margaret’s button box. The button box is full of
crappy old buttons and other stuff. The vast majority of the buttons are mother of pearl. They are quite lovely.
What’s even lovelier to me is that I have Aunt Margaret’s button box. How many of us even have
crappy old button boxes these days? How many of us take the time to remove old buttons from a worn out garment before we toss it in the rag bag? (Who has a rag bag?) And how many of us have a big mother of pearl belt buckle in our button box?
I really like that mother of pearl belt buckle. It will be hard to let it go. But it’s destined to be part of the project. I’m sure Miss M. will take good care of it. She doesn’t mind
crappy old stuff.
