NOTE: DIGI REMOVED
My Mamma died over 30 years ago, but I still have her button jar. She kept it near her sewing machine for use if she needed to sew on a lost button. I don't use the buttons--I just look at them occasionally and [now] smile. Digi #191 is my drawing of her button jar along with my card.
Blessings to you and yours. Thanks for visiting!

Thank you so much for sharing - I just found you through a google search and love this image :)ReplyDelete
I hope to craft with it soon, as my mom has been a seamstress for over 40 years! TFS!
Beautiful, Diane... I love buttons... I remember going through my grandmother's box of buttons as a child. I loved all the different textures and colors she had. Thanks for sharing your memory and your digital image!ReplyDelete
Very sweet! Love the same memories myself, only it was my Grandma's button jar.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the digi.
I also have my mum's and my grandmother's button jars. Lots of beautiful memories here.ReplyDelete
Thanks so very much. Hugs Lynne from OZ
OMG!! My father died just a little over three years ago. He & his brother ran the dry cleaning shop that their grandfather started way back when! His brother died about 8 years before him, and although he tried to keep it going on his own, finally decided to sell the shop when he was about 70 years old!! It took him over 5 years to sell it! He asked me sometime in that period if I wanted any of the buttons they had accumulated over the years from cleaning or tailoring their clients items. He was an avid woodworker on the side, owning many major wood shop tools, and creating many home projects/ repairs, plus turning out many,many home decorative projects. He knew my love of crafting, and thought I might want these random buttons!! I didn't want to seem like a crazy person, but yes....I took hundred's of buttons off his hands!! They all currently sit on the top shelf of my craft room (hundreds of them) in ball jars inherited from my Grandmother sorted by color. Some are so super unique!!ReplyDelete
So sorry I ranted on this way...your comment just touched a spot in my heart. And as inspiration to you.....I cherish them...but I have also used them on cards...because that's what my Dad wanted me to do with them. Go ahead...splurge...I'm betting your Mama would want you to share them in the same loving way!!
some of those buttons may be worth alot now!Delete
My Mum let me raid her button box that she has had for probably more than 30 years when I visited her last year. She wanted me to take anything I could use. I have used a number of them and it gives me pleasure every time I use one of her buttons. I still have quite a few left too. Thank you for the button jar digi but also for the memories that it has evoked in several of us. Judging by the previous comments, you have touched a number of us with this particular digi. Thanks.ReplyDelete

Thank you Diane for the button jar. Yes, my mom had one,also. I wish now I had asked for it, but didn't.Thanks again and a big Hug~JosieReplyDelete
Thank you for your beautiful image! I love your story that goes with it! So touching! Thank you again! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)ReplyDelete
My Grandmother had one. I wish I had asked for it but I didn't. She actually kept it for the grandkids to go through & practice threading buttons. She passed away in 2002 & I didn't know anything about scrapbooking then but man, I sure missed out on some vintage buttons. And this digi brings back some wonderful memories. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Thanks Diane for the sweet image which means that much more because of the personal story attached to it.ReplyDelete
