How many buttons is too many??? one can never have enough.
I have decided the time has come soon for me to part with some of my buttons,I have no idea why I love them so much.I am like a Bower Bird when I see them.
I grew up with my grandparents and they were Tailors and made uniorms for Police,Firebrigade and Ambulance men and fine suits for gentlemen.Both were still sewing into their 80's.Maybe it was always being surrouded by threads ,buttons and fabrics that makes me so into all of these today.
Soon I will downgrade and keep just some(well maybe a few hundred) lol here are some of my jars and tins all full of buttons.
Well that is some of my addiction,I would never live long enough to use them all,time is approaching to share them I think.

Decluttering....First stop "The Shed"
I have my own little shed and it was time for me to clear it out of items stored for a long time that I either have 2 of or just no room in the house.
Our young neighbour called out and said "put them on Facebook and mke a few dollars" having no idea how,Troy came across and took pics ,put them on his Facebook and before it was dark they were almost all sold! Modern technology can be a wonderful thing.
These are what went to new homes..
What did we do with the money...simple it went into my pot!!!! we also had another windfall of $500 unexpected alst week so that went in too,so looks like we will get that second air fare by December.

O'h it must been a wonderful dream.
MUM TODDLED OUT THIS MORNING JUST AFTER ME AT 5AM!!!what are you doing up this early Mum I think to myself,I swear if I got up at 4 she would be out lol,I get up earlier than Mum and Bob so I can do book work but it does not work out that way.I feel rude if I continue what I am doing at this rate I am never going to catch up!
I had a lovely dream last night she says,we were all at Thelmas ( her twin) and John was there and Pat...all of these lovely people have passed away now,just Mum left,these are her brother and sisters,they were out looking at Thelma's husband Roy's garden he is also passed over.We always used to gather at Thels house at Chistmas when I was growing up,so it is a happy place.How lovely for Mum to see them all even if only in a dream,she then said if you dream of the dead you hear of the living so today she is all hyped up about who may ring her up lol....
Life with a 92 year old obsessed with Molly our dog is one laugh over the other,many times I hear Mum telling Molly she is her best friend and other times Molly gets told she is Mums only friend,having a dog is the best thing that ever happened for Mum.The dog lady came yesterday to bath Molly,we can do it but it is someone else to call at our home,this is great excitement for Mum,Pam tells Mum all her troubles and then when I get home I know everything about Pam,how much her light bill is,how her partner is a cranky old thing lol the whole works!....wonderful........I wonder if these people such as dog ladies,lawn people,handy men,people that take the elderly shopping or simply call to say hello ...do they know their true worth?
Well I can tell you they are priceless,for Mum the hairdresser and the dog lady give her a link to the world outside our home otherwise there is just Bob and I and at times I think she thinks we are very boring lol.
So happy dreaming Mum,I am sure there was lots of laughter in that dream and catching up,Mum talks about them all most days,I think being one of only 2 children I have missed something along the way,I then in turn had 2 children,you can't pick a favorite that way lol,Mum misses her siblings very much but she has a sharp mind and many happy past days to look back on.
