Last week’s photo challenge was fleeting…
Fleet”ing, a. Passing swiftly away; not durable; transient; transitory; as, the fleeting hours or moments. Syn. — Evanescent; ephemeral. See Transient.
What’s fleeting about sewing? We spend our time creating fashion that is durable, classic, unique, that fits us & our lifestyle. Fleeting??? Hmm… evanescent?… ephemeral… ah — buttons!
What do we do when we want to update a blouse? If it’s got buttons, we consider changing them. A blazer/jacket needs updating? Change those buttons!
Maybe that’s why we collect them – hee-hee! 🙂
