Sometimes it is the little things in life that give me joy. Like a stop at a local shop and finding a little pile of vintage buttons with a $3 price tag.
Then you start thumbing through them and find two Bakelite buttons (bottom right), 7 glass buttons (four black at the top and the three white at the bottom) and a complete set of celluloid buttons with the cutest black and ecru checked pattern on them. With a few other vintage plastic ones thrown in for good measure.
That is what makes this girl’s heart sing!
“We pray for the big things and forget to give thanks for the ordinary, small (and yet really not small) gifts.”
