It's winter now and I'm in a wintry mood. Rummaging through my collection of buttons, I decided to take a picture of something dark, albeit joyfully dark. A button to honor wintertime. This carved-up spectacle in black strikes me as being owllike with it's massive Bakelite eyes occupying most of the button. It's a charmed nightbird, full of character and silent wishes for a snug winter season.
