Some of you (*cough* DAD *cough*) have mentioned how bitterly disappointed you are when I don't post. You've described how you log onto your computer in the morning, almost giddy with excitement at the prospect of reading another wacky, witty, insightful post from yours truly, only to be crushed by a wave of despair when it's the same post as yesterday, or the day before that, or EVEN, the day before THAT.
Well, I take my responsibilities very seriously, you know. Far be it from ME to rain on anyone's parade. So today, I give you.... gratuitous button shots. Don't say I never did anything for ya.
I ordered these after another irresponsible foray on Etsy, sheep and primitive crow mason jar buttons from buttonsbyrobin.
These beauties were actually a gift from my cousin Jessica. They're handmade porcelain buttons from... um.... the old country. One of the big ones, I think. (Hah! I love Chris Farley!)
And this one I picked up while visiting my Dad and stepmum Margot in Perth last week. I mostly bought it as a way to ingratiate myself to the shop owner whose display Maxime had just destroyed, heh. (Ah, 3 year-old boys... you can dress 'em up, but you can't take 'em anywhere). But that doesn't mean it isn't a nice button. AND I've got nice yarn that will compliment it nicely, too.
Happy Knitting Everyone!
