Button, button, who's got the button?
Inspired by a display of button bracelets at Broadway & Penn, it was finally time to do something with my grandma's buttons. They have been stored for years in old jelly jars. First in her attic and more recently in my basement.
I love the colorful buttons. They remind me of the happy faces of pansies and Grandma's garden. There were always volunteer pansies and violas popping up somewhere in her yard.
My daughter prefers the metal buttons and hers has the look of a charm bracelet. Spending time with my daughter making the bracelets was a wonderful way to finish up the year and talk about the past while dreaming of the future.
