    I love antique buttons. My grandmother had jars of them, and I loved to look through the jars as a child and play games with the buttons.
    Love these.

    Love the thread..I should do a rainbow display of my collection. I didn’t collect it on purpose…it just happened.

    Growing up my mother always had a button box. A go to if one fell off an item of clothing. Mine is not necessarily antique, a nice assortment though.

    I love yours Claudia!
