Ask Not! For Whom the Bell Tolls…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFor I shall tell you. Betty’s Bell tolls with the ever-so-lovely Lois S., she of New Hampshire. She, the same woman who adopted Sunny and Faith! You can see Betty’s former adoption page HERE. The previously pictured patriotic parade shall take place!

I am thinking of moving to New Hampshire and simply handing my girls over when I’m finished with them. Thank you, Lois!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANow for me to get back in the saddle. Oh, sure. Sorting buttons is very, very exciting, don’t get me wrong, but one’s heart can only take so much of the thrill. It’s time. It’s time.

Behold, though! Some of my sorted buttons this lovely morning. Like buttons are stitched together and ready to cut apart. Other buttons are sorted in little baggies, ready to go into cute little decorative and functional jars.

Here is where the magic happens:



My sweet brother donated his excellent wife Suzanne to me for a week, and she in turn donated this most excellent bedside table that swivels and turns for easy convalescent use. Who knew I would get so much use out of it? Not me!

Even more egregious: Fox cancelled “I Wanna Marry Harry,” quite possibly one of the finest shows ever to air on television!

Well, maybe not quite.

But it was a decent, mindless summer show. A perfect accompaniment to sorting buttons. And now it is gone.

I shall throw myself into sewer mode to get over the loss…Which O.L.D. doll will be next? Whoever shouts the loudest, that’s who!

Until then!
