I found a button I thought I had lost
That sounds like the start of a poem doesn't it? And as it's a heart-shaped button, it should be something meditative on the transience of love and so forth. But because it's me and I'm boringly literal, it's just a blog post about the small but profound pleasure in re-finding something pretty. It was in the tin of miscellaneous sewing stuff - bits of elastic, safety pins, spare bobbins, spare feet*, and other ephemera. That could probably be quite profound and symbolic too.
It's a Susan Sharpe Ceramics button, should you be curious, and is quite lovely.
* for the sewing-machine. The notion of spare feet makes me laugh. Wouldn't it be good to have a spare pair?
