My friend, Donna, is a writer for the wonderful Button Floozies blog. She wrote a great post about my button bracelets yesterday and used this beautiful picture she took when I had lunch with her recently. Since that post I have sold all three of these bracelets!
I could definitely be classified as a "button floozie". I have loved buttons since I was a child. My mother kept her buttons in a round tin and it was fun to take them all out, sort them by colors and match them up.
Years ago the fabric shops would put button cards in reduced bins and you could buy several cards for a dollar. I have quite a collection that I bought like that. Old metal buttons are getting harder and harder to find and new ones are expensive. I saw some today at Hancock Fabrics that were $8 for two buttons.
Enjoy your first fall weekend! I love all the church bazaars and yard sales this time of year.
