I couldn’t resist photographing my large glass sweet jar, now a button container (it was full of soap!)….. I should really tip out the contents to see the buttons at the centre of this button mass. Perhaps I will, but not tonight as I want to post this and then continue making my string bag. I am using some white Indian cotton as it has been sitting on the wool stash shelf for a very long time and a 5mm crochet hook.
The wool shop is open tomorrow and I am hoping that the yarn to finish my hand warmers has arrived. I would like to be able to say I’ve finished that project.

Buttons and their containers seem to be the theme again. I inherited the Dried Milk Tin from my mother and it still remains full of buttons, buckles and odd bits and pieces that needed a home. The contents have a rather dark colour theme reflecting the austerity of the 1940’s but it has survived the test of time and it gives me pleasure to see it on the shelf in my cottage.
Sorted some of the buttons today and decided to put the colourful collection in the old Noddy tin……. I have had this tin since I was a child and remember it being full of sweets. Buttons seem the better choice of content now and it is quite reassuring to see it being used again.
I will try and sort the tray of useful things out tomorrow!
