My very first post! Well, here goes nothin’… I listed button collecting as one of my interests on my profile page and then clicked on it to see if there were any fellow button aficionados out there. Nope, just me – alone in the blogosphere. Say it isn’t so! I do not collect them formally for display, but I do use them in crazy quilting. Carved mother of pearl buttons and twinkles are my favorites! Last week I bought sixty-eight twinkles on EBAY. Here is my favorite of the batch, although they are all beautiful. Isn’t this just the sweetest little button? I didn’t notice the detail until I magnified it.
