In my grand search for ways to use the buttons salvaged from thrifted shirts, there were several examples of filled ornaments. I used the smaller 2 inch clear glass balls and my tiniest collar and cuff buttons, added a bit of lavender hem tape, and made these for my nieces and sisters and one for my neighbor.

Both Andy and I worked Christmas day. Andy talked with an Emergency Room nurse, and asked if things were chaotic there.
"No, Christmas is pretty orderly in the ER. We get the cardiac events after people eat a big dinner, followed by the renal cases who ate too much ham. Then a bit later, the overdoses from people who went out to spend their Christmas gift money."
Gotta love those ER nurses.
