For Myra

Why do I love buttons  

- for their amazing variety of colour
Because of their  unique character
especially the old ones...
what is this one made of???
 the textures..
white is white but every one is different

 the size and shapes and creativity
that has gone into making them
 the memories you cherish of buttons received from family and friends
 and bargains of Trade Me of course

but the best thing about buttons is you can share them with special friends like I have with Myra. 
We both have a gorgeous button like this now and despite being 8 hours apart everytime I look at my button I know that Myra treasure's her button
Just as I cherish our friendship.
And anyway it's all Myra's fault I have these addiction's like quilting and button collecting.. hehe
Myra taught me how to quilt and she has buttons for Africa... around her home with wooden cottonreels and fabrics and wow, it's such a cool place to visit... 
I sew can't wait to win the Lotto and build our apartments with adjoining studio  !! 

May the beauty of your button brighten your day Myra and bring you the 'magic' you deserve!  x

Hi Karen,

What a wonderful button collection and aren't they fun to collect.
thanks for visiting me and was lovely to be able to relive the bike rides and the huts we used to build and all the happy times we had as kids.
Thanks Karen and I hope that you are having a wonderful long weekend.
The weather seems to be perfect everywhere, which is neat.
