What do you get ...

When you cross a minimalist with a perfectionist with a person who loves white.

See above.

This all came about due to a button project at my son's school. I pounced on the big bag of buttons and separated out the white ones.

Note: I have no use for buttons. Plan to have no use for buttons. Have never owned buttons. But I had a pretty good time lining them up and stacking them.

Evan put me on fetish watch.

I have a favorite button that I sometimes carry around in my pocket. I don't know what it is about buttons….
ps-i am not crazy

I've done this exact same thing! So bizarre… there's something therapeutic about it, don't you think?

Lovely! I adore sorting buttons, keeps me calm and happy. I suspect I come up with projects that require button embellishments so I can justify buying more unsorted jars at thrift shops :)

Sam, Alex

Maybe a little bit crazy?

Wee bit?

Rachel – So bizarre, and definitely therapeutic. I could have stacked buttons for hours. I think Evan was slightly worried.

At one point he said "are you going to cook dinner?"

I love buttons! They instantly make everything cuter.

My grandfather was a tailor and he had this shoebox full of buttons. Every size, shape, color. Sparkly ones. Cloth covered ones. Leather ones.
It was one of my favorite things.
