First, the pin. Some of you had asked to be notified when Sebastian’s pins were available. In that regard, you can find them at the link below. They are $5 each. Sebastian wanted me to put $50 each on them, but I convinced him that his friends would appreciate a much more reasonable price. After all, what would he need the money for anyway?
The little guy has just about every luxury one could want; a wardrobe full of clothes, cookies and coffees to his heart’s content and a nice place to lay his head – even his very own tent when it comes right down to it. No, he has no need of any kind of extravagant financial compensation. Let’s just leave it at $5, shall we?
Secondly, the vintage buttons. A week or two ago, my sisters and I went to a Quilting and Fiber Art Marketplace. It was a gathering of small business owners whose focus was quilting fabrics and supplies. It was my kind of place – second only to a bear maker’s marketplace, if only there were such a thing!
There was a vendor who dealt in Vintage Buttons and Linens. I had never seen so many beautiful old buttons in one place before.
She also had tablecloths from the 40’s and 50’s – she must have washed and ironed for ages to get them so pristine.
I probably could have stayed and rummaged through her baskets of buttons all day long. They were so different from what I see in the fabrics shops. Temptation was everywhere I turned.
I heard a little voice inside my head that kept encouraging me to say “Yes, ma’am. I’ll have one of everything please.” Thankfully, I paid
no attention little attention to it.
I eventually tore myself away from her booth only to find myself drooling in yet another one. I’m sure you’ll understand when I say I often forgot I had a camera with me. I did snap this one though.
Leave it to someone with a like mind to wish you the best in language you understand.
