Buttons

I can't resist a sale on buttons at 1/2 price, even though I now have 6 different button containers. Not all of them are full, and they aren't sorted in any kind of coherent manner, but I have a vague idea of what is in which box. One was my mom's and is full, one was given to me already full by my daughter's employer, one was a birthday present from my sister and was almost full, one is new as of last weekend (it's a haunted house shaped tin that only contains the newest buttons I bought at the same time), one is from a garage sale a year or so ago, and then there's the one I made from a paper mache' box that has my pin cushion for a lid. The last two are pretty full, too. I have a ridiculous amount of buttons.

You can click on this for a better look. The top row is pine cones, an eagle, a wolf face, cabins, rabbits. The lower row is round metal with an embossed bear track, old sewing machine, bison, turkey, and moose.

These buttons are just way too cool, Janet! The moose is to die for!

Those are great buttons! I love buttons, too. Do you know about Giggle buttons from Australia?
