Button Therapy









Raining outside
Sorting buttons
Listening to music
Reading a lot

Hello Laura! I love buttons and you have some beautiful colored ones. Sounds like you had a nice quiet Sunday at home with good food and family. Ours was a quite day too but it was sunny and windy and sweater weather. I introduced the gosslings to a puddle today...they LOVED it and had it been deeper they would have swam. They tried hard by skidding across the water on their bellies and had a great old time eating grass. It was a good day. I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow with sunshine and warm temperatures. Take care. Maura

I love old buttons. My birthday last year hubby and I went to a flea market and I was lucky enough to find two big canning jars full of old buttons. Some mother of pearl, some bakelite, tons of different buttons. No one could understand why I was so happy that was my birthday gift!

That's just what my daughter calls it- button therapy! She just loves to go through buttons sorting them and finding the treasures...

I love buttons... my button jar is filled mostly with extra buttons that were purchased when I was making my daughter's clothes (30+ years ago)... I misplaced my button jar for a couple of years (after my divorce) & mourned those memories... ONLY to find the button jar six months ago.

I have your blog listed as one of my "FAVS" - hope you don't find???

You can see my button post here (2/20/10):

The rain never reached us here but I had painting and decoupaging plans and would feel guilty if I didn't see them through! Then my honey cooked dinner!

sylvia said...

my idea of the sunday was: Spring Therapy..but we were lucky to have a sunny day, otherwise I'll think about button therapy myself...I've collected them and they are everywhere in the house...

J. Wecker Frisch said...

Sounds cozy. We had a similar afternoon, rainy cool day, sorting built up winter clutter rather than buttons.

Lululiz said...

Glorious buttons and a wonderfully relaxing Sunday by the sound of it.

mary beth said...

What a pretty way to display those precious buttons! I love this idea! thanks for sharing it with us!

Sounds like you had a wonderful Sunday, Laura. Your buttons are beautiful. We drove back from the farmhouse (it was hard to not be able to work on my garden there) on a beautiful and sunny day and I sat on our front steps at home in the city, enjoying the sun.

from me to thee......... said...

OMG, I HAVE LOVED BUTTONS FOR OVER 40 YEARS NOW...USE TO SORT THEM LIKE THAT WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL...WONDERFUL MEMORIES....Linda

I love buttons, but only the white ones! Who would have guessed that?

Sure wish I could make it to Marcys sale, but we will be coming to Mass. that next week and it's to far to travel back to back! Hope you guys have a wonderful time!

Jacqueline said...

Oh I love old buttons, Laura. I wonder why the old ones seem so much nicer that modern ones ?
I think that I told you that, when I was a child, my mum had a button jar and I loved putting my hands in it and twirling them around. Then, I would tip them all out and examine them all !!Then, I would put them all back in and listen to them jangle as they hit the glass of the jar.
Sounds as if you had a lovely Sunday. We watched some of the London marathon and then, did some work in the garden. XXXX

TERESA said...

Hello Laura, your button post inspired me to finally take time to list 52 Flea on The PORCH & Atelier blog roll today! I love your posts -if 'inspiring' is a tired word in this secondhand world, think of a better one for me, OK? I'm impressed by and truly enjoy what you offer here - thank you, TERESA

Your buttons are gorgeous, and sounds like you had a wonderful sunday,my sunday was spent pulling up my kitchen floor. At least we got it all finished :)

It amazes me how many times people post about the same thought - we're having a rainy day in Maryland too! I like your buttons - that's happy to me! I cook! Come visit out of the rain, Jennifer jennsthreegraces

Dear Laura,
how beautiful these buttons are!
Sunday I visited a fabric market. It was such a variety of fabrics that I hardly was able to decide....
Warm regards

Diane said...

Buttons are fun! I love the way you have them displayed. Mine are in plastic bags inside boxes. Shame on me! :-(

We enjoyed being indoors on a rainy Sunday.
Today, Monday, it's still raining steadily all day. I've been in the studio painting.

I enjoyed my visit here. Always do!

Diane

Donna said...

Sounds nice. Pretty buttons!

Ange said...

There's something therapeutic about sorting buttons to music on a rainy day. I love sorting my papers out in the same manner. But for now it is making hay while the sun shines here and I spread all my utensils out as far and wide as I can while I create outside in the sun.
Hmmm - buttons too hey?
