Scooping buttons

Twice this summer I've helped friends out at their garage sales and brought along my button tub, offering folks the chance to play in the buttons and fill a bag for $1.  At each sale, I sold just a few, but it was totally worthwhile to bring the tub along for that one or two women who were completely delighted by it.  Last time, a preschool teacher filled a bag of the largest ones to use in crafting with her kids.  Yesterday, two teen aged girls spent about 20 minutes hand picking each button to fill their bag.  They would show each other their finds and "ooh" and "ahh" over each one.  Button Floozies in the making!

Vintage, White Buttons

I love to include buttons when I swap artsy packages with other crafters. Because they are so versatile, they adapt to any package I'm putting together. The recipient of this package liked vintage and neutral colors (like shades of white and cream), so I included just that with plenty of white, vintage buttons. If you would like to read more about this swap, click here to be directed to the original post about this swap. Thank you for visiting! :)


We just had to share this fabulous folk art flag quilt pattern from the ultra-talented Jo James! What a great way to display your favorite red, white and blue buttons and reduce (slightly) your button stash!
