Ever since I found my grandmother Stella's button box, I've collected buttons. After I've totally worn out a shirt or whatever, I take off the buttons before throwing it away. I heard that Cary Grant used to do that, too, so I don't feel so weird...or cheap.
Notice in the photo above, that the little jars even have a button lids. I knew I had to have them the second I saw them!
These are some of the buttons that started it all.
Those giant buttons are about 1.25" across. I probably won't ever use them...
And these remind me of Necco Wafers!
Some of my novelty buttons. I won't use these either, cuz they're too cute!
And look what I found when I dumped out my big button jar! That damn Little Foot I've been missing for over a freakin' year!
Now I have to apologize to the kids, my husband and even the stupid dog.
