My Purchases
from the
Wonderful UWIB LadiesPart 4


Who's got the Button?

I personally love buttons. Yes, all kinds! I think it stems back to when I was a kid and my Mom had this tin container jam packed with all sorts and sizes of neat buttons. I would sit for hours and sort them and string them and just have a ball. I recently purchased this really cool pin made from, yes you guessed it, a button!

"Grandma was always going to do something with the can of buttons on the shelf in her sewing room. We took Grandmas love for her vintage buttons and created this lovely one of a kind brooch/pin. Here you find 2 of grandma's vintage buttons together with waxed linen cord and crystals. ~♥~ ~♥~~♥~ ~♥~ We will be donating a portion of each sale to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Julia is an active marathon walker and will be in San Fran in Oct for The Nike Women's Marathon' We love custom orders so please just ask and we will happy to complete your request."
Made with love in Lincoln CA by Julia
