And then the buttons:
When we were visiting with the Dearest's clan over the weekend, my lovely MIL let the boys play with several jars of buttons. There were all different sizes, shapes and colors of buttons, some of which were obviously very old. MIL said that the buttons were from her mom and grandmother. I couldn't believe the treasure trove of vintage goodies she had stashed in all those jars! When she saw how interested I was in the buttons, MIL instantly gifted me with them. Lucky me!
Here's a shot of one bag of buttons....she said these are probably bone or ivory. Anyone know?
I've been wanting to make a button necklace for quite some time now, but I didn't have enough buttons. Now I do thanks to my sweet MIL.
Little Man, like most kids, loves playing with the buttons. He immediately picked out a couple of large anchors to put on a shirt. I'm trying to figure out how to sew them onto either a shirt or maybe a tote bag for him.
