unexpected

What are you like,when you expect something and receive so much more? When I am given a gift,I am inclined to open it in private,I do not like to feel exposed,emotionally or otherwise. I hurried to a private place to open this package.I thought,I had expected, one thing...but received so much more. It is sometimes hard to express just how thankful you are; sometimes,it's more than the gift you are thankful for. I expected these buttons. Charcoal.Metal.Cold.Smooth.Curved.Perfect. But,there was more. There were large ones and small ones, there was this one , and this one, an old clock face to create with,there are old type letters,and photos. and linen bags for the treasure. even the box was beautiful . Thank you Al

I knew you would turn things of isolation into a beautiful story in pictures.

You are very much welcome for all of it. Anytime.

T, we need one of those button shops in the U.S.!!!! They are absolutely fabulous. I don't know about you, but whenever I get a tidy, little button package from AU, I don't want to actually use them. They are like little pieces of art work I just want to savor...
