International Button Week

This week...November International Button Week.

If you love buttons or have a collection this is a good time to

share them with pics on your blog. Have you thought about

where a button has spent its lifetime? from one garment to

another. Our ancestors would cut the button from a worn

garment to save for use on a newer garment. Even their

shoes had buttons. Can you imagine the time before zippers?

I'm posting some of my button collection. Some are antique,

some are unusual and some are new. They are all useful!

Many are beautiful. Let's all give thanks for buttons!!!
