Button push pins, thumb tacks and drawing pins.

August 11, 2009

So many names for such a little (but useful) piece of spiky, but round metal.

I love buttons, always have. I even know guys who are closet button lovers!  So, I’ve been experimenting … yes again.

Push buttons.... beautifully displayed on a reclaimed coffee cup. 3 yr old thought of the idea, and 9 yr old executed it.

What do you think?

My glue gun was NOT impressed, and half way through the project decided it had had enough, shorting out the entire back half of the house. Yes. Computers, modem, bedside lamps, alarm clocks, sewing machine, iron. Everything. Writing it down…..maybe I had too many appliances plugged in at once! Not very EF (environmentally friendly) of me.

Anyway, no major damage done, but I did have to purchase a new glue gun. 3 yr old announcing loudly on the train ….”We are going to Ashfield to buy a gun!”

Context is everything.
