A few months ago a co-worker was going through her mother-in-law's boxes of notions and came across scores of buttons. For the most part they are plastic dime store buttons, but they are really beautiful vintage dime store buttons. The original owner had organized the buttons for the most part by color so it was not too hard to take them out for a color-coordinated photo shoot. I have yet to use a single button, although I culled a number of them for another co-worker who wanted to teach his students life skills like setting a table, ironing, and button sewing. When I made S her Wee Wonderfuls Bunny I was a conscientious auntie and did not make button eyes. Although, tomorrow I might be making a sock monkey that will be in need of a pair of vintage button eyes.
