Buttons? Did somebody say something about buttons?
Yep. That would be Analise at Sugar*Sugar, whose blog I just found today (hooray!) via Jane's Apron. (another hooray!)
So I grabbed these guys fast to take a couple of quick pictures. Last night I decided to spend my Earth Hour (did anyone else do Earth Hour?) sorting buttons. I thought it would be pleasant and meditative and sort-of Little House on the Prairie-ish.
It didn't work out very well. The constant questions ("Why are we doing this?" "If I turn the lights out, can I keep the television on?" "Is the hour up yet?") didn't contribute to the meditative aspect of the event. Eventually everyone except me went upstairs. (Like I didn't know they had the lights on up there.)
That left me with my buttons and candle, and you know what? It's really hard to tell what color buttons are by candlelight.
