...and now it's official!
I'm Laurie, aka Indulge Your Shelf, and am thrilled to be among this group of people who love buttons as much as I do!
The story of my love of buttons began like so many of us -- by rifling through my mother's button box in and making piles of my favorites. Fast forward to when I was a newlywed, and shopping in Alton, Illinois with my mother-in-law; at a junk shop, I found a cool old tin full of buttons for $5. Inside were some of the most wonderful examples of buttons from the early 1900s. I've been actively collecting ever since.
I love to craft with my buttons, and find just the perfect one to embellish one of my projects.
Very recently, I joined the Colorado State Button Club, and learned that my button collection is not as exquisite as I once thought. I've seen some breathtaking buttons in my short time with the CSBC. I now aspire to learn all I can about the buttons I have.
Still, it's not the quantity, or the quality even, of my buttons that gives me joy. It's the details of each and every one -- and I love them all!
I especially love carved Mother of Pearl, all colors of glass, and Art Deco and chunky buttons in all those fun shapes.
