I've been crafting, but failing to take photos of stuff in good light. In the meantime, I thought I'd share my latest crafty find with you...
I've always felt that my sewing area was missing a jar of random buttons (everyone else who sews seems to have one -- do you?) (If you don't, I can now send you one... keep reading...)
Since I am a total crowd-follower, when I saw this giant jar of buttons at the Alameda Antiques Faire last weekend, I just had to jump on it:
It was on the half-off table, so I got it for $10. How could I resist? It's super huge. I don't know if you can tell from this photo that it's huge, but it's about 9" tall and weighs a ton. Plus, it came in this sweet-ass jar! Check out this cool label:
Hrm... what is it about honey that causes people to leave the "f" off of the word "of?" (Bit o' Honey, Blade o' Gold, etc.) Do you think it's cause their lips are stuck together?
Next step: Pouring out all of the buttons and sorting them! Let me know if you need any...
