it was a good friday
yesterday was a good day.
lisa c came over. my dogs L.O.V.E. her [who doesn't?]. i love that she lets garbo kiss her. it's not very often that the one eyed pitbull gets the love she deserves!!
we had lunch
we went to the goodwill, we went to target . where we each got sucked into buying a feather tree [we got green]
but i have to say... the highlight of the day was our visit to this amazing button store
we have been sworn to secrecy on the location of this button heaven.... but let me just say that they have buttons from the 20's through the 70's ... on perfect cards... in drawers and drawers.... and as the very nice woman who runs the store said: none of these buttons are plastic. plastic buttons don't last you know.... these are composite buttons.... and if you come back we'll have different kinds because our house is full of them.
gulp. if you have a button request i'd be happy to see if i can fufill it! just let me know color/size/shape/creed. most likely they'll have it. but don't ask me where it is. because i can't tell you. lisa will kill me. heh heh.
all i can say is - i feel very very lucky to spend a day with someone so genuine, so creative, so full of life. she has a contageous smile... and i loved hearing about what she has planned for some upcoming shows. very exciting indeed gracia is working on a time machine.... do you think, dear, you could also work on a teleporter? how much fun would it be to hang out w/ all our blogger friends from around the world? a big old grand tea....
