This week at Quill's Cottage for the Laura Ingall's Blog-a-thon we are to talk about buttons. I don't have a lot to say about buttons...although when you need one, it is nice that they are there! My memory as a child is the same of many, stringing buttons for grandma. She had boxes of them and always wanted to be sure the shirt buttons were separate, I supposed because that is what she always had to replace with a hubby and 5 boys! I did have a jar of buttons, but when we moved that went to Goodwill along with my other Country decor. But I do have one button item to show!!! This is a brooch a lady sent to me one year from Michigan. I was living in Wisconsin and she was looking for a particular item at garage sales. I found it for her and she sent me back this brooch. I don't wear it, because it is rather heavy. It would look good on a winter coat, which of course, we don't have.
