{todays easy decision}

I would rather have a
coin purse
full of
buttons,
compassion
&
happiness
than a
wallet
full of
money
greed,
&
sadness

What is it about buttons? A pile of them appeal to young and old, now don't they?
Wishing you all the compassion and happiness your heart can hold...and a coin purse overflowing with dreamy buttons!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Could I have buttons and money, but skip the greed and sadness? I tend to get a bad case of the "I wants" when the weather starts to get nice:)

Just kidding, I love the sentiment and the polka dots! I hope your weekend is wonderful.

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
Your thoughts today are good for the soul to ponder ~~~
Which of her lovely prints {outside layer} did you choose for the coin purse?
I think the Asian doll print is adorable... My niece would love that one!
The popcorn one is so cute as are all the birdie ones I saw in the "sold" category. I'll keep her in my favorites... I love supporting entrepreneurs {I would have SO had an Etsy store when I was home with my kids!
Have a sweet weekend and more vacation joy ♥
~Maria

Amanda said...

It is so true that money can't buy you happiness. I also wonder why I am much better at saving my buttons than my money!!!

Jacqueline said...

What darling suckers. You have endless creativity. We've had rain mixed with snow all day today, but no complaints because we need the mositure for the upcoming summer. You probably never need to worry about that where you are! Happy weekend to you.
