Button Jar

I'm new to this blog and just wanted to say hello and show you a picture of my button jar. I love looking at all of your button pictures. They bring back sweet childhood memories. When I was young my mother kept buttons in a cookie tin. She would take them down from the closet shelf and let me play with the buttons. I love buttons.
I keep my buttons in an old blue Mason canning jar that belonged to my Memaw.
These pewter buttons are a recent purchase. I plan on sewing them onto a knitted neckwarmer.

HI Phyllis!
what lovely buttons! I think it's wonderful the way you call her Memaw. I don't think I have heard that before. :) Love the wood top to your jar!

Thanks Abbie. I found the jar lid at a craft shop in Berea, Ky. As soon as I saw it I knew that I had to have it for my button jar.

Thanks for visiting.
You have a very unusual blog.
Looks like fun. You reminded me that I have a few containers of buttons and other sewing notions that are very old from my Mom and Great Aunt.
Can't seem to part with them.
Have a great day,
