Button Button I Have The Buttons

I have an age old love for buttons. This love affair has been a constant in my life for decades.

My husband is aware of this affair. I am sure he is okay with it, unless and until it reaches hoarder status.

So I've come up with a good plan. I am selling button jars on Cottage Violets. I am calling them "Not Your NaNa's Button Jar"!

I found some lovely single serving glass milk jugs. I gathered up some crisp white tulle rounds, Velcro strips, grosgrain ribbon, and bakers twine. I made some cute little tags, added a button and voila' : "Not Your NaNa's Button Jar". For the buttons, I chose the Button Galore buttons. I measured out 4 ounces each, which is approximately 175 buttons.
At last I can have my buttons and sell them too! They sure look cute sitting around the craft room. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Can you resist buttons? If so let me know how!

Here they are sitting in their sweet little crate waiting for a new home.

I will leave you with heart full of buttons Cynthia Houot, the Rose Queen , Miss Angelheart from Angel Heart Designs custom made for me. They are ceramic, and I use them on special projects when I am not just sitting and staring at their beauty.

Button up your overcoat
When the wind is free
Oh, take good care of yourself
You belong to me

Having lovely time, wish you were here, Theresa

I too love buttons Theresa, something so addictive about them. When dear MIL died I became the owner of her button box and have so many dating back through the decades.

Love what you have done with yours
