I have bought more than a few grab bags of buttons in my day but there are also buttons from my mother's and grandmother's button boxes here. It's so much fun just to think about the possibilities...Maybe string some for a bracelet for a little girl (or a grown up) and some of the one sided ones would make good post earrings. Actually my favorite pair of earrings are made from a pair of antique gold buttons!
My husband will be happy to tell you I am a hoarder. Not true I say, everything I save has a purpose I just haven't figured out what that purpose is yet!
Don't worry, my hallways are not lined with stacks of old Newspapers.
But I do like to collect little bits and bobs and think about what to make with them.
How about you do you have a favorite craft use for buttons? (besides securing the front of you blouse)
Happy Holiday Crafting!
cheers, Claire W.
