Hi everyone, Today has been fantastic. The weather continues to be lovely and mild. Life is so much more comfortable when the temp is in the mid 70's. I have been sleeping better. Insomnia has been a chronic pattern so sleeping at night is much appreciated. And then today I have unearthed tons of new images and pictures for all of you. Very exciting! I just loved these and hope you can use them. Great costume ideas.
As much as I want to play some more it is bed time. So goodnight and much love to each and everyone of you, Louise
The Legacy is a small, but very full thrift store. Everything has been donated and the proceeds go to the Sebastopol Senior Center. The most wonderful thing is what they specialize in; sewing, quilting, fabric, crafty stuff, yarn, books, scrapbooking, stamping, embroidery, ribbon and trim etc. It’s like a Jo-Ann’s or Michaels’ thrift store. They also have vintage lace and linens. This little shop has been my soft place to fall. It’s magical. Now onto the buttons… My last name, Bouton, is French for button. Ironically I am now in charge of the button donations at the Legacy and I LOVE it. Wanting to make a pretty button card to sew the loose buttons on led me to the discovery of clip art. Luckily I found "JustSomethingIMade" and "the Graphics Fairy". Kindred spirits! Then I realized I had 1000’s of similar images, dating to the 1700’s. Inspired, I created a blog to share all this ephemera with you creative ones. All because of buttons! And that is how Bumble Button came to exist.
