buttons and cameras.


I got these buttons at an antique store a while back. I was thumbing through my vintage button collection and realized that i didn't have nearly enough (really, I have jars and jars full of these puppies) pink and aqua buttons. I took care of that. Maybe one day I will be bold enough to teach myself how to use the buttonhole setting on the sewing machine! Maybe sooner than later. I saw a pattern for some fabric napkin rings that I really want to try out but I wasn't sure that it would look so good with snaps. Oh and the navy buttons I just couldn't resist, they are chunky and have a cute pattern, into my basket they went.
About the camera fund...I truly believe that I own the crappiest camera known to man. It has an autofocus mechanism that as you can tell doesn't work. I am sick of apologizing for the photographs of my crafts and I would like some decent images for my own archives. I've had enough! Today I am putting $20 in my piggy bank and in a couple of months I will probably be apologizing for photos of morning dew on leaves or worse, rose petals.
