It's been a long time since I stumbled across a supply of buttons. Possibly years. I bought some at the Bouckville show this summer, but it's not quite the same thrill as finding a cache unexpectedly.
So I was very excited to find a Mason jar filled with buttons Thursday. Usually jars filled with buttons have all kinds of useless and terrible-looking buttons. But this one was filled with the kind I like - bright colors and flowers and interesting shapes.
Clearly my button finder needs a little fine tuning, because upon realizing there were multiple jars, I thought: I should look these over and pick out the best one. Instead of instantly thinking: I should buy all of these.
