This is for the Saturday Scraplift: at an angle . . . I love the page from Debi . . . love the strip on the right hand side of her page! The photo is of one of our grandsons playing in my sewing room while I worked on some project. Most of my children and grand loved to play with my buttons too! My favorite thing about this photo is his concentration . . . and that little tongue sticking out as he threads the needle through the button.
Journaling: There are times when I have thought that my children, my grandchildren and I have had parallel lives. Have done the same childhood things . . . played the same games . . . enjoyed quite activities very much the same. I can name a few as I sit here and write . . . drawing with my daddy, painting, reading, being read to, helping cook with mother and Mama and stringing buttons! My sweet grandson, Harrison is my little shadow . . . he always has been and I am quite honored and proud that he is. He loved to sit quietly and play with buttons . . . sorting them, stringing them, counting them, putting them in jars. I can almost remember doing the same thing while my grandmother sewed when I was a child . . . and, I have a photograph of Harrisons daddy stringing buttons when he was a little guy too.
