simple things......

Hello all!  Was your weekend a lovely one, I certainly hope so.  Mine was a wonderful one.  I spent time revisiting many of my favorite books, delightful indeed. I also did a little knitting and a little writing too.  Honey and I did go out on Saturday evening for a few hours heading up the coast to enjoy the ocean breezes.

I wanted to share this little button picture ornament I made sometime ago.  I love old vintage buttons they are one of my favorite simple things and find it hard to part with them or even craft with them.  I keep them all in pretty clear jars occasionally taking them out simply to admire.  What is it about old vintage buttons....I love their smoothness, their texture, their history, and the fact that they are just plain beautiful.  If I ever become brave enough to do a tutorial, this little button ornament I think would be one of my favorites to do.:o)  What is it that frightens me about a tutorial?   Hmmm I do not know.   I think it is wanting to make sure I make it doable and enjoyable.:o)   But I do think it is high time for me to break the ice.:o)

When it comes to simple things.....which ones brings you the most joy, peace and happiness?

Year by year the complexities of this spinning world 
grow more bewildering and so each 
year we need all the more seek peace and
comfort in the joyful simplicities.
