Buttons

I have a penchant for buttons. It has something to do with my grandma and my Mom collecting them in wonderful old tins and jars. They were sooooo much fun!

It should have been an indicator of my personality when, as a kid, I spent hours organizing all of the stray buttons in my Mom’s big jar. By the time I was done, all those that were alike were threaded together onto their own strings in neat little clusters.

No, I don’t know why, except that it gave me great satisfaction. That same attention to details and organization has followed me my whole life.

And this little grouping? A friend was cleaning out her closet. I told her to give me all those little button packets that come with business clothing. Who knew there would be so many? Aren’t they pretty? And no, at this moment I have no idea what to do with them, but being an artist and a crafter, there is no telling how they will be re-purposed.

Now the greatest fun of all is finding antique buttons. Up for an antique hunt?
