Ok...you caught me. I've been dying to use that title since I bought my really big buttons.
See this giant thing on my lap? Here's the story.
I was shopping with my mom in Utah, and had just been explaining to her that I only buy things I really, really love. If I just like it I'm not going to spend money on it. Then I turned around and saw 5 ginormous wooden buttons that can be hung on the wall, and it was love. I think I had little hearts floating out of my eyeballs. So I bought them - even though I wasn't entirely sure at the time where I was going to hang them.
The biggest button was trying to stow away in my suitcase when I went back home, but when I had to remove 3 pounds from my suitcase to get it under 50 pounds (or pay a $90 fee...seriously?!) she came out, and I gingerly carried her through the airport and on the plane.
Funny story (I know, I'm writing a lot here)....a little girl on the plane looked at my button with a very perplexed look on her face. I said, "Yep, it's a button. It goes on really big pants." She looked a little afraid, until I told her I was joking and showed her the hook on the back and explained that it's meant to be hung on the wall. I'm not sure that completely cleared things up for her.
Anyway, as soon as I got home I knew the perfect place for my buttons.
See this big empty space between the nightstand and the window? I've been wanting to put something there, but didn't know what. My buttons were the perfect answer.
See? Aren't they perdy? I'm not totally sold on the placement. I was hoping for a more random arrangement, but I couldn't figure it out...so they'll stay where they are for now.
