The substitute teacher


Today I feel like the substitute teacher who is a little lazy and a little overwhelmed, so she puts on a video and doesn't even mind if you fall asleep during it.

Today, class, I'm going to show you a few of my favorite photos that I've taken lately.

First, the pink dogwood blooming in my back yard.

Next, a few new buffed celluloid buttons. Note that the ones on the left and right in the top row look like little logs. How weird is that.

Finally, a new postcard in my shop. This one dates to about 1910 and is illustrated by Frank Reynolds. It's titled "Racing to Supper."

OK, class dismissed.

Substitute teacher, huh? Well, for a "lazy" post, it was interesting. I miss my two dogwoods...love the flowers. Your newest buttons are great. Maybe a Callooh Callay faux bois line...?

Very educational in an easy going way. I love the pink dogwoods. I wish I had room for one in my yard.

Beautiful shot of that dogwood - too bad they don't bloom all season long eh? Where do you find buttons like those - they are really special!
