A Closer Look: The Button Purse

This post is for you Lynette !

My mother made me this purse several years ago! The buttons belonged to my Mother and Grandmother. I can't imagine how long it took her to stitch on each button.  It is a work of art. I remember going through my Grandmother's buttons and counting and sorting them. A jar of buttons could keep me occupied for hours. It still can!

I don't take it out and about much, but whenever I do I get lots of compliments.One day at the grocery a woman grabbed my bag to get a closer look. I spun around so fast that I almost knocked the poor old lady down. She apologized for startling me. She just had to look at my bag!

The sparkly one is my favorite!

 Trying to get my Mom to open an Etsy shop. She is super talented in beading, knitting, quilting, and sewing! I even offered to run the Etsy shop for her! Maybe someday!

Here she is at a Red's Game :D

Sleep tight everyone!


  1. I love buttons. That purse is SO beautiful...and unique. The orange sparkly one is really awesome!!! Your mom is quite talented.

  2. Wow...this is STUNNING! If your mother ever decides to make and sell them...I will be the first customer. Thank you so much Emily...for giving me a close-up look;-D

    Have a lovely weekend.

  3. Such a special purse, what nice memories it holds.
    My daughter tells me I should have an etsy shop, not to sure about it though
