First: American friends, have you voted yet? If not-- stop reading this and go vote! It'll still be here when you get back, I promise.
Anyway. Now that we have that taken care of, I'd like to share with you part of a lovely graduation present from my best friend Marissa's family.
It's a jar of vintage buttons! I love it.
The buttons are all different shapes and sizes and colors.
Even the lid of the jar is pretty! It's nice to touch, too-- it has that weathered-metal feeling.
I've collected vintage buttons for years, but this jar of them is special to me because it was such a thoughtful gift. Then again, I shouldn't be too surprised-- it came from a wonderfully thoughtful family.
Have a fantastic afternoon!
