A picture of a peaceful interlude -- sorting buttons from a thrift shop grab bag.
Many were very common, but these are my favorites: above, celluloid in blue and brown, and a chunky black plastic button with inlaid metal.
These "cookie" buttons, older plastic.
Black glass, aurora borealis glass, and a metal button that I particularly liked.
I'm getting emails from participants that their White Christmas Button Books are going out in the mail -- so excited to see and post photos of the results when they are received!
