For the love of buttons
They do evoke happy childhood memories of staying with a favourite aunt.
Playing with her button jar when we went to stay with her kept us occupied for many an hour - what a clever lady she was. She had obviously learnt a trick or two about how to keep children happily at play.
Somehow I seem to have accumulated quite a collection of buttons over the years and for the most part they live as a decorative item in an over sized cookie jar.
I brought them out one week for our Sweet Pea ladies to look through for a craft project.
Rochelle remembered about them and recently asked if she could bring her daughter around to have a look at them. Her daughter, Heather, was involved in a school project where she had to create something that was totally recycled and buttons was one way of achieving her goal.
The pupils creations are going to be auctioned at school.
Not only did they have to create something from recycled items, but they had to have a business name.
In this case it is 'Button On' and Heather has called her earring, necklace and bracelet creations The Retro Collection.
Well done, Heather, we think it looks great and hope you do well when you make your presentation.
