Hello, my name is Rachel and ever since I was a child I have been obsessed with buttons. Welcome to the button support group. The place where we help save the little beauties…wait…you didn’t think the support was for us did you?
Why buttons? Maybe it’s their perfectly symmetrical appearance. Maybe it’s because some buttons are like little pieces of art. Maybe it’s because they can spark a thousand creative ideas for such a small little button. It probably started, as I have said before, because I used to sit on my Nan’s button tin at her house when I was little, and probably because…
I could easily slip a little button into my chubby little hand, into my pocket to keep it safe from the big scary bobbins and needles!
So as I grew older I started to collect them. All different shapes, sizes, colours and materials. I could and still can’t pass up the opportunity to buy a box of old buttons at a car boot sale or a charity shop. I still have to save them all. Which is why when I opened one of my Christmas presents from my gorgeous sister Sarah, I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was perfect beyond words. Look at this beauty…
Yes you read it right it is a ‘Button Sanctuary’. It is designed by a fantastic and funny company called The Bright Side and I have to say, I totally recommend you have a look at their other lines as well, they really make me chuckle!
Buttons…Buttons…Buttons… (this is probably what it looks like inside my head)
This is so unbelievably ‘me’ it’s scary!
Isn’t it just brilliant!? Have you ever seen any fabulous button products you want to share with the group?
