Button Button Who has the Button


Today is one of those wonderful Fall days…..kinda sleepy and cozy. So With my chores done and an itch to do something. I looked around my sewing area and thought…where are my buttons? I have them all over the room….and in other rooms. LOL…yes! I love buttons of all kinds. I have been lucky to have inherited my grandmother’s buttons and I was given buttons from my friend, Virginia. This is in addition to my own collection of buttons.    So I set out to pull everything out and see what I had. I realized that I had an abundance.

It took me all afternoon but what a great afternoon it was. I am really so very happy: I have them in one place and in color order. It is so much easier to locate
