Back In The Saddle!

She lives!  Despite all my big talk about turning corners and being sure I was nearly well...  well, I ended up with pneumonia and eventually had to admit defeat and hit the recliner chair for a week.  On Sunday I FINALLY started to feel like myself again and hit the VOA for a long-overdue look-see.  They greated me with "Where have you been, we have buttons!".  Oh boy, did they ever!
I also found a blue vase in the color my son is fond of collecting, four glass door knobs and a metal souvenir ashtray.  This is the second one in my not-quite-a-collection and was happy that is is an Oregon souvenir.  My other one is Montana.  Only 48 to go!
The buttons looked like mostly the modern novelty variety, which is fine because they sell well.  Once I got to sorting, there were plenty of old ones to add to my collections, as well.  I will show a few of my favorites in a future post.
I have missed you all and happy to be back!

I found a box of buttons at an estate sale this weekend and I thought of you.

Glad you are feeling better. I'm pretty sure that sorting buttons is one of the best medicines you can take!

Good to see you back again and I'm so happy to hear you're feeling much better. I'd feel better too with a button haul like this.

Some people get flowers as a get well treat, but you end up with buttons. Glad you are on the mend.

So glad you are back in the saddle.

Steve just asked me what I was chuckling about. I couldn't help laughing when you said the shop people asked where you had been!

Thanks for the sweet comment on my latest post. I feel like a little girl who just got a new playhouse!

So sorry to hear you were so sick! Glad to hear you are better though. Gee, this winter has been a rough one for illnesses. Looks like shopping therapy worked it's magic.
