Button, Button ...


As those of you who follow my blog know, I love 
buttons!
My mom knows this, too ... 
and that is how I ended up with this fabulous button collection!
{Thanks, Mom!}

She also knows that one of my favorite pastimes is sorting through old buttons. 
It's like a little treasure hunt ... 
you never know what trinket or oddity you'll come across.


This pile of buttons revealed several old bobbins from a sewing machine ...
and a wooden knob from a sewing machine drawer ...


...a seashell {perhaps from a summer vacation at the shore} ...


... an earring that lost its mate {perhaps it would turn up again some day} ....


... old jingle bells ...


... and a vintage key opener from a can of Spam.

Silly things ... useful things ... 
things that someone ~ at one time or another ~ didn't want to part with ... 
end up in a button jar!

Just waiting .... 
patiently ...
for me to find them again!

I love getting old jars full of buttons and whatnots, its such a treasure hunt to see what is inside. Looks like you hit the motherload. Enjoy and God bless.
