Dearest

Oh, my dear little button.
How I love you. How I wish I could keep you. But my heart is so very big, that I choose for you a better life, one that will afford you the possibility of priveleges beyond this scope.

Live wisely, little button.
Farewell.
Remember that your cousin will be living a life of unbridled excitement in Norway, and will keep you forever in her thoughts. I am pleased to comfort myself with the knowledge that you will always be near me, and when we meet at the grocery store, I will contain myself and not embarrass you publicly with my tears. I will bow my head and shuffle by, and remember that you have a new mommy now. Perhaps from time to time, she will allow me to hold and cuddle you and remember the times we shared.

But you, dear little button, keep strong. Do not easily become undone.
You will always be a part of me.

Dear little button, I can assure you that your cousin will be living a happy life in Norway, and I will post a picture in a few weeks of her in her new environment. Good luck as you too get a new home :) Happy easter! (I will post a link to your bag blog on my blog if it is ok?)

excellent. It is nearly the weekend (again! isn't the week supposed to last seven days, and not seven minutes?!) Anyway, I hope to impose myself on my husband this weekend to help me with etsy details. Then we can get this thing in the mail.

dear little button... please forgive me for callously tossing you across the living room floor this morning and then laughing at your mother's dismayed cry.... :)

you don't look like you got hurt... oh wait.... YOU ARE A BUTTON AND THEREFORE INCAPABLE OF FEELINGS (or perceiving feelings and well wishes, as it were)

Rosella- it is hard for me to imagine that I could teach you anything, but what is mine is yours. So, let's talk shop!

HI joyce love you, love your buttons and did you know that BEate is a good friend of mine and I know she will take care of your buttons I can vouch for her, and you must include a bag of nacho chips when you mail the bag because Beate LOVES them.
