Buttons


A long time ago, I asked my grandmother if she had any of my great-grandmother's buttons. She sent me a little baggie with some in it along with a couple of crochet hooks (my great-grandmother did a LOT of crochet!). When my grandmother passed away I got a small box of buttons from her house. I mixed them together in this little jar along with the crochet hooks and a pair of folding scissors that was in the box from grandma's. Not many buttons - they both sewed a lot and I have no idea what happened to the rest of the buttons, but I'm glad to have this small collection. I keep them on a shelf here in the office where I see them often.

Melissa - thanks for the b'day wishes - it was in July, I just didn't post the pic of the window until now! LOL

Teejay - thanks for the instructions! I've printed them out and will try it this weekend when I have more time.

Hi Tina, thanks so much for stopping by. I love old buttons and I have jars and jars and old tins full of them. There's just something magical about old buttons. I guess they remind me of my grandmother and aunt, who would pull out their old tins to repair things with their buttons.
