Tuesday's Display Chain
Misi, at 1890 Gable House Musings, picked a great theme for this week: "In The Closet . . . Obsession". It will be fun to see what everyone posts.
My obsession started innocently enough . . . I started a collection of buttons for my sewing projects. Then, I kept stumbling upon jars of them at flea markets. The older ones are so interesting. I could not resist them. And ya' never know what kind of button ya' might need for a project . . . maybe a fancy one, or a metal one, or maybe some simple vintage whites. So I figured I better be safe than sorry. For quite some time, I hid my growing stash . . . not wanting to admit how many there really are (well over 20,000 at this point). Smuggling them into the house . . . not wanting to discuss that I had weakened once again. But they're just so darn pretty! And they deserve to be out in the sunlight! So, I no longer try to resist their charm and have completely succumbed to this obsession. Several jars reside outside the closet now. And many, many more are tucked away into sewing boxes, dresser drawers, the linen closet and everywhere else you might be in need of a button!
