Buttons

Have I ever mentioned that I am obssessed with buttons?

When I was a little girl, my mum used to make dresses and so we were quite often in haberdashery type shops. All the buttons were kept in small, see-through plastic drawers. You could see all the hundreds of different coloured buttons winking away. I used to steal them. We would get home and my mum would find my pockets full of buttons.

Hub just bought me a bracelet with buttons dangling from it.

It is so lovely that here is a link to the button jewellry lady.

*Admires bracelet. Jingles it a bit*

I really love buttons.

My nan used to have an old ice-cream tub full of buttons and I used to love sifting through them.

That bracelet is fab - bless your hub for combining your love of buttons with a delightful gift!
