More Buttons! And Whatever Else Grandma Stuck in There!

Took a little road trip to an old farmhouse...
And there was a quirky memory or story 
hidden in every dusty corner!

The owners of the home told us about their mother's button box.
I know you all remember your mother's, 
grandmother's or even great grandmother's!
Such a beautiful tradition to keep one...

At first, I saw all the mother of pearl buttons.
"They're a dime a dozen!"
But then...

A shoe heel?
A baby's diaper safety pin?
Belt buckles, earring backs, goofy springs!

And Jack's bean from the old tale, Jack and the Beanstalk!
This farmer's wife was the overall repairer and the garden tender...
How amazing :)
