I am so impressed with your work!It’s very eyecatching! :)
Ming, thanks for all your wonderful supportive words! Funny how we often overlook things, like a\a simple jar of old buttons…….
Don’t you just love button jars? I even see a snap bottom in there. Let’s see, I could use one of those….;)wonderful. Yes they are sentimental, right down to the split shell button.
Oh gal, you know your buttons!! THANKX!!
My dear grandmother always kept a button jar just like this! She would let the grandkids pour them out and look through them. Now I have my own button jar even though I don’t sew a lot like she did. It’s a sentimental memory kind of thing and I find it comforting. You did a great job painting this! :)
Sharon, you are RIGHT ON! Funny how the little things like this can bring back such memories! Everytime I look at the old jar….I think of mum!
fabulous work Linda! My mum also always had a button jar, i now i have one too :)
THe comments are really fun on this one……….never thought so many would cherish their button jars!! COOL!
Hehehe… although my grandmother had a jar like this… it actually looks more like MY button jar!!! When I was sewing a lot I had a fetish for buttons… just couldn’t part with any…. but I got over it and I do use them now…lol!!!
With all these button comments……..looks like we should have an “old button” club!! Wonder what it is about old buttons??? FUNNY !!!
