271: unbuttoned

hi friends.

Thanks for all the love. I can really use it, actually.

There is some great blog-land coverage of Market going on, so I hope you won't mind if I take a little longer to post all that I have.  I just can't seem to get my brain on board with the Market Report action.

But in the meantime,  if you want to see and hear how spazzy I am in real life, you can check out the
live podcast I did on Boutique Cafe with the lovely Daria. That's a lot of links for one sentence.

(Just so you know, I can call myself a spaz, but I would prefer it if you didn't call me that, ok?)

I wasn't too nervous since it was very casual and I really like Daria. It was just us chatting and being silly like we would if we weren't, you know, streaming it live for the world to see. Ahem.

Daria was such a sweetie, she got all misty after taping because she was so proud of me! Isn't that so sweet?

I just can't post without some eye candy, so I will pepper this post with  some shots of a booth full of vintage buttons!

Organized by color! Be still, my heart.

That one in the foreground was killin' me with it's gold glittery stripe.


So once I get going in a few days, I will share about some new friends and people I met last time that I got to know better.

I will show a pair of beautiful yet evil shoes, David Butler drinking an ibeer, a Westminster booth catastrophe and other highlights.

Or would that be lowlights?
