Melissa of WishesDreamsLove sent me an amazing gift this week. These buttons, she told me, came from her grandmother and great aunt, who, in the 30's worked for a charity that used clothing as rags. But first, they cut the buttons off to save. And so, all these years later, Melissa and her family have all these buttons. Melissa was so generous to share some of them with me. I couldn't help but let out a little squeak when I saw these buttons, and immediately put them in a bowl to pour through and look at. I'm so in love, and in particular, with the little bits of fabric that's left on some of them. Amazing.
Carol of Kidding Around offered to pass on her copy of Julie and Julia when she read that I was looking for it. That book arrived this week, and with it, all these lovely treats! A fabulous vintage children's textbook (I LOVE those), and some gorgeous old things for Adelaide.
The generosity of people simply amazes me, and makes me so happy. Thank you Carol and Melissa for your acts of great kindness!
