My finger on the button
So we went to Florida for 6 days to visit my husband's parents and one of his sisters. We went last year, but only for three days, so this was a treat. It was my second visit to the state of Florida. They live on Anna Maria Island, which is below Tampa Bay. You can swim in the Bay or on the Gulf side depending on the wind. We stayed on the gulf side and went to the perfect beach every day. It was ridiculous! We love the super bright sun that makes everything go to eleven. And his family is wonderful so we were relaxed and well taken care of. Herons and egrets and ibis aplenty! I never get tired of seeing these incredible birds just standing in someone's front yard like a robin.
I hadn't packed any craft supplies (thought I would catch up on my reading) but on my way out the door to catch the plane from Manchester, NH, I impulsively grabbed my jewelry tools, sterling findings and some mother-of-pearl buttons from my vast vintage button collection. So here's what I made: (and I'm keeping them for myself!)
