pin cushions & buttons
Yesterday I realized I had a pin cushion collection going on. Who knew!
I have discovered some of the sweetest pin cushions out there... like Heather's... and are these not the cutest pins ever! I gotta get me some! All of these pin cushions were found at yard sales for around a quarter each, except for the red magnetic one in the top pic, bought brand new.
I have also had a thing for buttons. Probably one of my earliest childhood memories are of playing with my Mom's basket of buttons. When we would go over to my Grandma's house, I'd play with her buttons too. I still love the feel of buttons running through my fingers... all the various shapes & sizes... separating them by color and design. I especially love big, old coat buttons. Some are hideously big and gaudy, but that only makes them all the more desirable!
