Buttons from Brenda

dscn0816I have this friend that pops in and leaves me buttons she has found at flea markets and yard sales. I have collected buttons for 30 years. Matter-of-fact I have a button room full of buttons. Well, the other day I was sitting at the desk by the back door, and I heard the gate squeak. I went to the door and was going to wait for the knock, and the door opened, and there was Brenda. I scared her death. I really startled her. She said all these years she has just come on in and laid them on the table, or by the back door. I was really sorry I scared her. But, I was real glad to get the new buttons. Thank you, Mrs. Brenda!

    Show me your button room! Please!!! I am a button hoarder and belong to a button study in Galion, Ohio. I have a button room also. I do button programs for local clubs. I also collect anything to do with tea parties, hankies and aprons. I found your blog through Pat Eaton’s blog. You are a hoot!

  2. I just bought 30 pounds of vintage buttons and 5 button books ,
