I find connections among books, art, music, libraries, travel, crafts and food.

A Book Shelf & Buttons

1. I'm obsessed with the Readers Digest donations at the library. They are on the "free" shelf, and almost every week there is a new batch. My favorites are from the 50s and 60s, and some of the 70s. The papers they used for the covers are just gorgeous. I line my office wall with them like a sort of wallpaper. I'm always thinking of new uses for them: here's one that is simple.

2. Like any crafter, I have a thing for buttons. I also like colored wire and little glass bottles. What better combination could there be? I've made several of these for gifts.
