Trying to find the perfect buttons for a journal I am working on. This is my favorite box of buttons - a lot of mother of pearl and mostly old. A couple of years ago, my sister and I went through my mom's button box and I picked out all the white and pearl ones and anything with some sparkle.
Did your mom have a button box when you were young? I still remember playing with the "button box". I loved to sort them by color or type. I still love buttons and I like to use them in my art, but sometimes I can't part with the old ones, because it feels like I am giving away a piece of my childhood.
