Tuesday Treasure

I love buttons.
When I was little, I used to sit and play with my mum's tin of buttons.
My kids have also discovered the joy of playing with buttons.
Threading them. Putting them into little piles of colours or sizes. 

... so today's treasure is a little bit strange, but it's my box of buttons and the enjoyment it gives both me and my kids

Come along and join in the Tuesday Treasures fun with Clare's Craftroom.
