Buttons and Buttons....

When I was little, my mum had a tin full of buttons.  I think it was an old shortbread biscuit tin, from memory!

I used to love getting into that tin, oh boy.

I sifted those buttons through my fingers and watched the glorious colours flicker and slide. I loved the texture and feel of them. I sorted them, pushed them around, arranged them in patterns and rows.

Toys don't have to be expensive to be mesmerizing and eductaional!

These pictures strike a chord with me...... bring back very pleasant memories....

And, last but not least, my favourite button pic, EVER!

You know how much I love trees.......

All that button inspiration has got me inspired to head off to the craft store and browse around.

Spotlight, here I come!
