When I was a kid, my great grandparents took care of me during the day while my parents worked. I was the luckiest kid in the world! My Gram & Paps were sweet, fun and I can still feel the comfortable love that surrounded my days.
One of my favorite things to do was to pull out Gram's old cookie tin of buttons and play with them. I'd sort them, line them up and run my fingers through them. They would make a soothing clinking sound...very Zen!
Now that I'm in Full Craft Mode I've been thinking a lot about those buttons, but neither my Grandma, Mom or I knew what happened to that tin!
Sad story, right?
WRONG! My mom FOUND the buttons (strangely removed from their tin) hiding in her basement! Memories flooded back! Does it make me too weird to remember a goofy bunch of buttons so fondly? I picked out my favorite ones and brought them home...
