Buttons, buttons, who has the buttons?

I went downtown yesterday for the first time this year.
I was on my way to Dressew, and I walked up Homer St and found the Button Button shop!
It had moved a few years ago; it vanished, and now it has re-appeared.
It is a most wonderful shop.
Before I set off on my adventures downtown, the Button Bag arrived at my house.
It came from Florida, and is making the rounds of the Bleu Door Belles.
Here are my little Bleuettes goggling all the wonders of the Button Bag.
The task is to choose buttons, and replace the ones you've picked.
We had a delightful time!
The tiny red heart buttons came from the Button Shop.
Ever since my Mom let me play with her button box when I was a little girl, I've been fascinated by buttons. I have quite a collection, too. I have some buttons from my Grandma Helen's sewing basket. I remember choosing them one hot day in the summer, while we were in Oregon on vacation. There's nothing quite like the thrill of running your fingers through oodles of buttons!

Aren't these neat? If you click on the photos, you can really see the details.
