Things are sure different now, do you know even ten people who would replace a missing button rather than just buy a new shirt? So when I see stray buttons that go unclaimed I bring them home, clean them up, and put them on display. My button jars serve as a reminder to me that the tiniest thing can be used to ‘hold it all together’. Surprising when you think about it, huh?Antique jar of buttons (next to our wedding picture) on top of a cabinet.

Baby dress buttons, military buttons, and the big black buttons from Grandma’s church dresses. Rhinestone buttons from a fine Easter bonnet, and simple wooden buttons from granny’s field bonnet. Pearl buttons from silk gloves, and metal buttons from grandpa’s overalls. Buttons just remind me of all the times when something was about to fall apart, but someone rushed in with just the right button to help hold it all together again.Assorted button jars on my stacked cubes.
I just love BUTTONS!
