As I have grown older, I often have thought I should DO something with the buttons. Or some of the buttons. Something I could see or use everyday and it would bring back wonderful memories of my Grandmother. I have often thought of making a button pillow and I recently browsed etsy and found a few I liked for inspiration:
|I like the heart....very fitting.|
|I also like the monogram....I am a sucker for anything with a monogram.|
|Button tree on painted canvas....I have many white/pearl buttons so I could do this one!|
|Love the button monogram....again, monogram fool.|
|Another monogram....this one monochromatic.|
And just today, I saw this cute, cute idea for button-topped hair pins! I just wonder if this is too juvenile for me to wear:
I actually have enough buttons that I might could do all four of these projects (if I ever make the time and have the gumption); however, I think something inside of me might be sad to actually USE the buttons. Is that weird?!? Of course it is. Maybe just the hairpins. One or two. Or maybe just a wee pillow. Sigh. I am way too sentimental for my own good. So, what's your vote? Use the buttons or no? And if I do use them, what should I do with them? Hope you are having a great weekend! B.
