Call me crazy - that's okay. Most people who know me are already thinking it anyway!
These are what I call my found objects. I started collecting them when I decided to try my hand at textile art. Well, not much has happened on the textile art front as yet, but on retirement I should have more than enough found objects. In fact, like all my ventures in life, it seems to have become a bit of obsession and I cant throw these little blighters out. OCC - Obsessive Compulsive Collecting perhaps?
I enjoy collecting buttons, especially glass ones, (another obsession) and when I get my hands on a bottle or tin of buttons I don't know what excites me more - the discovery of all the little 'found objects' or a sparkling glass button.
