So it rained yesterday...thereby nixing our plans for a backyard sit-stay pool-knit vacation-at-home action. Instead, we turned the day into a treasure hunt - the search for The Perfect Buttons. ("Perhaps my favorite kind of treasure hunt, Mama!" Seriously, that girl.) When The Buttons weren't to be found in our very own pile above, we took our search out into the world.
And thus, with Adelaide and Harper, a perfectly lovely rainy afternoon hour was spent staring at the wondrous wall of buttons at Central Yarn Shop.
Oh, I love that wall. I've spent many an hour staring at those very shelves full of boxes of gold - nearly since I was Adelaide's age myself, visiting with my grandmother on a Perfect Button search of our own.
The decision making process is a slow one. A good, fun, slow one. Many must be looked at, lots should be touched. But it should never be hurried. I've even left before to 'try another day' when The Button didn't pop out at me. These things simply cannot be rushed, you know.
Yesterday, our treasure seeking came to a triumphant conclusion when we both found our Perfect Buttons. Ah...I love happy endings.
And now, onto the crafting!
