Nope, I'm not giving advice to the candidates. I'm talking to myself.
Last week or so, I had that poll up asking for help choosing the buttons for February Lady. Only 13% liked Choice 2, the green buttons. Choice 1 and Choice 3 were neck-and-neck through most of the voting, with Choice 3 eking out the win by one vote. But I was still worried. I was afraid those oblong buttons wouldn't fit through my button-holes. So I went with my gut and ordered Choice 1. They arrived yesterday.
They are beautiful! I love them. The workmanship is amazing. They are true treasures. The problem . . . .?
Their color looks TERRIBLE against my sweater. It's rainy here today, so the colors in my picture are off (yeah, that's right, I'm blaming the rain). But trust me, their shade of brown DOES NOT go with the brown of my sweater. Even Pea agreed that they just don't match - and if he can tell it doesn't match, it has to be bad
So I have learned my lesson. When you put up a poll, listen to the results!! Don't ask for advice and then do the opposite - that's just mucking up your karma. I have learned my lesson. I'm saving my pennies for another set of buttons. A set I will buy in a store, where I can hold them up to my sweater.
