Memories

Hi!  My name is Rosie.....and, I am a Button Floozy!

And furthermore, I come from a long line of Button Floozies.......

Some of my earliest memories revolve around my Mother's sewing room. I would sit with her for hours while she would sew. One of my favorite things to do was to look through her button boxes. She used old cigar boxes.
 

She would allow me to pick any buttons I wanted to practice sewing with. Sometimes I just sewed them onto plain muslin....othertimes I was allowed to put them on a favorite blouse in the shape of a flower.
 

One day, I will pass this tradition along to my grandchildren and they will, too, become Button Floozies!  And, so, it will go.........on into history.......


Love to all you "closet" Button Floozies.  :-)  Rosie

My children sit and play with my mothers button box all the time.. sort and shuffle! when I was a child I played with the same box and I think most of the buttons are still there.. they hold such lovely memories!

What a lovely tradition, especially letting you sew with them. I hope it goes on for many generations.

I, too, am a button floozie-have been for many years--don't know why -just know I had to have them.
