    Black Cat Button

    7 months, 3 weeks ago

    Black Cat Button is my guilty pleasure! For years I collected all sorts of gorgeous buttons but I was never sure what to do with them. I also had a very special button box, inherited from my lovely Nan. She had saved every button from every shirt, cardigan and coat; she never threw any away – sound familiar? Inspired by Nan’s button box, I made some button treats and gave them to friends. They were quite popular and, when I ran out of friends, I started to sell them for charity. I now sell my lovingly crafted collections and gifts online with Etsy, at local Craft Fairs and at my Beach Hut ‘pop up’ shop. Buttons make us feel nostalgic. They remind us of happy times and most of us knew someone with a precious button box. Did you learn to count with buttons? Did you covet and collect them ? Do you still save them, ‘just in case’? If you would like to share your button story, tell me about your ‘Nan’ – or hear some more about mine! – then follow me @blackcatbutton on Twitter
