Alphabe Thursday B is for Button

May 29, 2014


I like buttons simple because they have round cheerful faces.  Jewels without the harsh facets (?)  As a dressmaker I go to great lengths to buy the correct one! I have a small collection that I have accumulated over the years.  I like to tip out and sort through, sewing my favourites onto a canvas into a picture. I always remove them from clothes before I put them in the rag bag.  If the clothes are fit to go to to a charity shop; which often isn’t the case I replace the pretty buttons with not such nice once! That is a guilty pleasure!!

So this week’s nursery rhyme is perfect for me

Buy any Buttons’

Buttons, farthing a pair,

Come, who will buy them of me?

They are round and sound and pretty,

And fit for the girls of the city.

Come, who will buy them from me?

Buttons, a farthing a pair.

    I have a cool Christmas tree (small) with buttons for the bulbs. I love it, and a friend made it for me.

    I love buttons too and try not to buy them for no reason. You’ve given me an idea, though: sew them in my art journal! Shouldn’t take up “too” much room in the book! {:-D

    What beautifully bounteous buttons!

    I love looking through old button boxes when I can find them at yard sales!

    This was really a fun link! And such a clever idea!

    Thanks for sharing.
