    Tina, wishing you magnificent New Year! And I absolutely understand your interest in buttons and little things – they are what we considered to be treasures when we were children. I suppose they hold the air of a magic. When my daughter was 3, we took a big box and filled it with colored buttons, pearls,gem stones and old brooches and put it in my grandmother's garden under the old apple tree. The next time we were back 5 years later. The first thing my daughter did was ran to the apple tree to dig out the box.It felt as she found the treasure,pure joy! Such a beautiful memory 🙂

  19. Gabrielle Kendall says:

    These are rather sweet – inspires me to upload a few of my own iphone photographs that are usually forgotten about!
