At thrift shops near me, those button grab bags have become very expensive! (Don't even get me started on the prices for a variety of really common buttons at an antique store sometimes...) But if they're cheap I grab them up for the thrill of the hunt. This time, I lucked out when I found all these pretty glass buttons amongst the extra button envelopes in one of the bags. Especially those little deer!

I found these deep, divided drawers at the Habitat for Humanity thrift shop. They were used to store contact lenses originally. I think they will make great button storage! My adult son was with me when I bought them. He said, what are you going to do with those? I looked at him and said, well, can you think of anything small and round like a contact lens that I have a lot of? And he just got a knowing look on his face. He LOVES to tease me about my button collecting! If you know me well enough, you know I can't leave them as is, though. I think I'll decoupage pretty paper on the outsides... and then spray paint the insides of the drawers. I think that especially larger buttons will store nicely in here. Because I needed another project! (Not.)
