I LOVE buttons!!!
Whenever I visited my grandparents as a little girl (and I visited often – they lived opposite us), I ALWAYS had to get out Nan’s button tin. It was an old Quality Street tin, full to the brim with beautiful buttons. I loved to empty them all out on the table and just ‘sort’ them – by colour, by size, by what they were made from, by how much I liked them, by how many holes they had, by whether or not they had shanks.....
When I visit my grandparents now, I still sometimes get the tin out!
Only, now I’m big (and crafty), I also have my VERY OWN button collection. And I get to sort buttons whenever the mood takes me – which it often does.
I got my buttons out the other day, and picked out all the most colourful ones. Then I laid them out in rainbow formation, and took some photos. And, as I think some of you may be button-lovers too, I thought I’d share my snaps with you.....
Does anyone out there like playing with buttons every now and again???
