Not too long ago, I popped on Button Floozies to write about Flash Fiction, Button Style. This is an interactive feature on my website where readers email me a picture of a button and I write that button's story. In keeping with the Flash Fiction genre, I limit the story to 250 words. To prevent me from spending way too much time on it, I also limit myself to one hour.
It's fun to see what emerges from these limitations.
Today I'm excited to share my latest Button Flash. It features a determinedly colorful button set in an even more colorful background. This picture immediately reminded me of a carnival and I decided the button belonged to a seamstress for a troupe of aerialists.
Here's a picture of the button, which was sent in by Buttons By McAnaraks. If you'd like to read the story please click here!
Button Floozies is devoted to buttons and the women who love them. For many of us, button love began when played with our mothers' and grandmothers' button tins as children and has grown through the years. The Button Floozies blog is written by many contributors; they are listed below under the heading "Button Floozies". Whether you collect, or just admire, all things tiny and fabulous, join us as we show our treasures, and the things of beauty we create with buttons! -- Laurie email@example.com
