Buttons and other Smalls

A button asks little more than to be held, admired and worn close to the heart ... I've always loved this quote that I read in Victoria Magazine a number of years ago.
And I've always loved buttons. As a young girl, I used to get out my mother's button box and put the two prongs of old fashioned bobby pins through the two holes of a button and Voila! instant tutus and lovely skirts on little 'dolls' - (okay, we were kinda poor and I didn't have a lot of toys - lol)
These are some of my pearlies that I move around in jars from room to room in my home. I have piles more and will get them photographed too. In the meantime, here are some other smalls that hang around my home. More favourite things - blue willow pottery and chintz dishes. I have lots more pictures to take and load up. I'm on a roll.

The picture of blue willow mixed with chintz is striking!
