Who would have thought that a simple button would be the inspiration for another blog! It seems we all love buttons and have a stash somewhere that we keep for a rainy day. And if buttons are for rainy days here is my rainbow. These are my grandmothers buttons, the ones I "inherited" when she passed. Just like grandma, there is nothing fancy or glam about them, they are just simple little buttons gathered and collected with care, used to embellish the clothes that she sewed for all of us ganddaughters out of bright feedsacks. Funny how the love of buttons seems to go way back to our grandmothers and even great grandmothers time! There must be something about buttons that just appeals to women of every time! I look forward to seeing what kinds of fun things everyone on this blog comes up with for using their buttons. Here is a picture that I clipped from a magazine years ago. Talk about inspiration! Can you imagine this womans stash if she can use her buttons so lavishly?I don't know if I can be that free with mine, especially my grandmothers. They have a lot of sentimental value to me and buttons can be expensive and hard to find. If I can bear to use some, I will share it here. I have a few ideas and I will be keeping my eyes open at estate sales for the next perfect stash:>) Stay tuned, we're going to have fun!
