I finished the Louie the Fourteenth Bracelet

I have been looking at this button for ages. It was terribly discolored and stained until I found this amazing polish. I had to make something from the button, it was so beautiful. Also I mixed all sorts of yarns together. There are a few button from my trip to Bruce's yesterday.

ML. There is a working fireplace in his store. I was amazed and asked him if he ever used it. Of course he said no. You remember how his store is stacked with boxes and things behind the counter. But wow what a great store it would be with a fire burning. Can you imagine looking at buttons with a fireplace going. Oh my. So perfect.

I bought some vintage buttons today!!! Hooray!!

Oh gee, I had to go over to Tustin and drop off my payment for the Glitterfest show. While I was there I noticed Bruce the Button guy was open. Oh my, I hadn't been by his place for so many years. He is never open. I dug through his old buckets and was in there for at least an hour. I though of you ML. You would have been right there with me. My hands got so dirty he had to give a little towlette. So sweet. Here are the ones I got for your enjoyment. Of course I cleaned them all up. What fun.

Today is my 38th Wedding Anniversay

Unbelievable how the time goes by. We have been through so many different time periods together. The end of the 60's, the 70's, the 80's, the 90's and now we are almost through the 2010's. In most things we are in complete agreement but there are those one or two things that we never agree on. You would think we would be used to each other by now, wouldn't you.

And then a Spider sat down beside her

Oh no, look at this spider. If I had gone out to the trash can last night I would have walked right into it. What is he thinking????? Scary

My first button from fimo

I am so excited, I made my first button from FIMO today. I did other things but this was such a reward. I love anything that sparkles. What do ya think ML??? I used some of those Rhinestones we got from Berger beads downtown. Hooray. I don't know what I am going to do with it but I can look at it for a long time. I also turned on the torch today. I also listed buttons on ebay. Check them out.

Labor Day week end

So are the trash guys coming today or not. Sometimes on holidays they come and everyone is in a mad dash to put their trash cans out in the morning. Yikes. We all see each other in our bathrobes, and we all have the same sheepish, frustrated look. Ha ha. I don't hear them this morning though, I guess they give the laborers the day off. Oh yeah it is LABOR DAY.

I guess some of us have to labor anyway. Rita
