My sewing tin, (which does not house buttons) is from my grandmother, Bertha Olivia. What a blessing it is to pull it out and remember the moments she taught me to thread a needle, sew on a button, and create beautiful things with needle and thread. I love that it's mine.

I love that you shared this story...and hope the vent cleaning went better than expected.

The projects are cute, but your button musings are my very favorite part of this post!!!!

When my mother in law passed away, I asked my father in law for her button tin. My son would play with the buttons in the tin for hours when we would visit. I've added buttons along the way and used some, too, but it will be given to my son on his wedding day, so he knows that grandma is there with him on his special day.

Thank you for a lovely, loving post. It made my night reading it and remembering my mothers button box.

Loved your decor for the baby shower, but the story touched my heart. I used to play with my grandmother's buttons because there were NO toys at her house and that is the one thing she would let me play with. I do have some of her buttons, but they were in a drawer, not a box. I have collected buttons for a very long time and have used them for sorting games in my classroom and with my grandchildren, for crafting, and even for their original purpose. I find it hard to resist a collection of buttons whenever I see them at sales and I have thousands of them. Thankfully, I do not have a floor vent. Happy memories!
