Seeing Red


Must. Stay. Away. From. Etsy.

I purchased these buttons for the Mother series from a couple of different Etsy shops. Not sure if I'm going to continue the Mother series. What will become of these buttons?

And rick rack. My mother is a huge fan of rick rack. What's a valance without rick rack? What's a shower curtain without rick rack? What's a bathrobe without rick rack? As a child, I was probably rick racked without knowing it. Could be what my problem is today.

i've seen your photos of maps and buttons and letters...i think you could make art out of anything. at least photography...just in case you get tired of what you are doing you have an eye for other mediums that is OBVIOUS.

I have a vision of pink rick rack from my childhood.

I can definitely see why you were seduced by the buttons.
