Today I played with buttons. That sounds a little dirty doesn't it?
First I divided all of the buttons by color. For this project I only used white and black buttons.
Notice how wonderful they look together? Nothing chaotic. Just sweet button color.
Then I took more of those scrabble tiles and put them into a glass soap dish that I found while junking.
Here's my other old typewriter. It's a travel typewriter.
One is not enough. Just so you know.
I put a page of an old dictionary in the typewriter.
I'm sure that no one will need to look anything up on that page.
I added this old black and white hat. It seemed the sensible thing to do.
Lastly, I used scrabble tiles to spell "story".
I love the word "story". It's an eight point word. Is that good or bad? You know I hate scrabble.
Here is the result of my little setup.
It's not quite done. I need to find something soft, maybe a tattered velvet scarf for the bottom of the hat holder.
I'll work on it more tomorrow. There is something about creating these little bits of decorative nonsense that I just adore. I love seeing areas of my home in new ways.
Speaking of something that is neither decorative nor nonsense, I am so proud of David. He slept with his sleep apnea mask for six hours last night. It's sort of like when a baby sleeps for a six hour stretch. There was no snoring and he got to enjoy sleep and oxygen at the same time. Incredible.
Let's hope that once he's no longer stumbling through life in a sleepless fugue he won't suddenly notice the junk and order a dumpster.
