Buttons & Memories
Saturday, January 23, 2016
The other day I was searching for two large wooden buttons for a cowl I just finished crocheting. I poured out all my buttons onto the counter and started searching. As Murphy would have it I found many I liked but only one each.
All of the sudden I was hit with a rush of memories. I remembered sitting on my Grandma's large bed and looking through her old tin of buttons. I used to sit for hours, organizing them but color, size and type. I love playing with those buttons and imagining how wore them and how they lived. My imagination would run wild. I loved Grandma's old button tin.
It's funny how every day things can trigger memories; some sad and some very sweet.
Did your Grandmother have a button tin?
