Dear Blog,

Ahhhh! I missed last week! Where did last week go, anyway? This week is going to be a doozy, Safelite is doing their add campaign so call volume will be way up. I can more or less expect back to back for 5 hours instead of back to back for maybe 2 hours with 1-5 minutes inbetween calls for the other 3. *sigh*

In other news I have tons of knitting to show you! But absolutely no pictures. It's been grey and rainy here. At least it's not snowing!

Last night I had a random etsy splurge on some vintage buttons. After hearing Hello Knitty rave about the vintage buttons at greenrayprod yet again.

Fan Dance "Eight metal buttons from the Victorian period, 1870-1890. A large braided metal rim surrounds a dyed red center, over which is placed a large multicolored stamped ornament of a fan." I love them! The red back makes them perfect for the Honeybee Cardigan that I plan on making out of my Malabrigo Sock in "Ravelry Red".

Four mother of peal buttons from 1900-1920. Love love love!

Have a lovely week!

Ok, so here's the issue with your blog... you post pictures of buttons and talk about them, and now I am CERTAIN I need to go and purchase some immediately! Do you see my problem here?? :)
