Didn't there used to be a child's game where they sang, "Button, button, who's got the button?" Anyway, I have the buttons! A whole big box and several jars worth.
A family friend's dear departed mother had owned a small quilt shop, sadly before I knew her, and left a lot of odds and ends when she passed. I am lucky enough to have received a few big boxes of things from that stash.
This past weekend found me making a few hair do-dads for a little girl and I needed some buttons for the felt flower centers. I went rummaging around in the giant button stash and found just what I needed. Love it when that happens!
In addition, I found some treasures to share with you. I wonder how old these button cards are?
Then there are these buttons above, which remind me of Croquet balls. If my daughter was still in love with fairies, I might be inclined to set up a tiny game of croquet on a patch of moss.
Does anybody know what these mother-of-pearl things are? They don't look like they could be part of a clasp. The slot is about 3/4 inch long and the backs are plain.
Finally, there are these Bernina buttons. You guys know I am a Janome girl, so I'm going to give these away. Identify yourself as a Bernina user who lives in the USA in the comments below, making sure you're not a no-reply blogger or I have an email for you, and I will pick a winner.
