sailor take warning

red sky

There was the most beautiful sky this morning when I woke up. I know—if you go by the old rhyme: Red sky at night, sailor's delight; red sky at morning, sailor take warning—then it will likely rain tomorrow. But that's OK. It was perfect yesterday and I spent several hours photographing new buttons and trims to add to the site. One of my New Year's resolutions is to get more organized and moving out some of the materials I know I won't be using is one way to help with that.

The trims were from a boxful that someone sent me last year. Lots of pretty machine and handmade lace and crochet. I'll also have more vintage rickrack soon—that still needs to be photographed.

And on it's way to me from Chicago is a box full of vintage buttons that I purchased from a woman who was settling her mother's estate. They looked gorgeous in the photos she sent and should be more so in person, so I can't wait for them to arrive. Of course, I'll be keeping a lot of them to use myself, but there will be plenty to list, too.

So, if you like buttons and trims, check back in a week or so to see what's new. And I recently reorganized my trims page into categories so it's easier to find exactly what you want. I'll be doing that for the buttons, too. See, it's all part of that organizing I mentioned earlier.

In the Uk the rhyme uses shepard not salior. How interesting.

I'm not sure which usage came first—the sailor or the shepard—but I discovered this when I was researching the rhyme. Guess it applies to anyone who is dependent on the weather :)
