It took me back to my childhood when I sorted Granny's button box, whenever I went to visit. I inherited it!Unfortunately like my other stash, I discover I have the button hoarding gene and one box became 4 jars. It became much harder to sort the buttons and as they were all mixed up finding just the right one or two became more difficult. They all had to be tipped out and sorted, yet again. Along came small Ikea storage jars and once more they were sorted into rough colours, aren't they great?
I still have the four big jars I need some more Ikea ones! I keep resorting them and discovering that the purple, red and pink ones have been all mixed together. That just won't do.
What set of the re-sorting? I needed some small buttons for my African bag and it took ages to find just the right ones. It's very therapeutic when watching TV.
