Love *story* Thursday


Let us hope we are preceded in this world by a

love story.

from Of Time & Memory & Sweet Land-the movie

I spent a good part of the past winter haunting antique stores collecting vintage buttons to make magnets like these. Then I spent hours with many buttons spread out on the kitchen table, sorting, cataloging, ogling and then petting my cat, Bean, who had to lay herself in the middle of the whole thing. Each magnet was built with the giftee in mind, also time consuming. Love is like that. . .it takes time but is worth every minute.

What beautiful buttons! I know the recipients will feel the love that inspired them. You are very clever to think of such a use for special buttons.

Great idea! Your loved ones are truly lucky to have you.

My grandmother had two big tins of buttons in her closet; I wish I had thought to ask for them before she passed away. I have to ask my dad if they happen to be still around....

I can paw through boxes of buttons for hours, I'm boring like that.
