I forgot to give Jessica a book I had bought for her birthday.  So she got it on Saturday.  It's a collection of Eloise books, the little girl who lives in the Plaza hotel.
Today her mother told me that she read some of it with the help of her dad.
And cracked up at the dog named 'Wienie'.

And my brother sent me a boatload of buttons.  The ones he made from antlers.  Lovely, lovely buttons, I'll have to take photos.  Three different kinds, and I'll have to figure out what to make with them.  I can't knit fast enough to use them all, so some of them will have to go on bags....  Now to get the right material to really make them pop....


  1. Oh, I can't wait to see the buttons and what you create with them.

    How unique!

  2. I want a boatload of buttons and I want to be Eloise at the Plaza.

    Both are such lovely thoughts. Thanks Oma!

  3. My dad is into making antlers into knife handles, using them on lamps, and several other things…don't know if he's ever considered the idea of buttons.

    BTW, stumbled here via cJane's post...
