“Nana's Button Box”

Description from Karokat: My grandmother (aka Nana) used to have a cigar box full of buttons of every shape, size, color and material. As a very little girl, I used to love just plunging my hands into the buttons, stirring them around, then scooping handfuls out and letting them run through my fingers. The texture and the sound of them was addictive. As I got a little older, I used to spend hours with my grandmother, going through them and sorting them. I'm pretty sure my mother still has the old button box - and someday I'm going to find it and have a blast going through the buttons, with fond memories of my Nana.

    It seems a lot of us have fond memories of old button/bead containers. I guess we were all destined to be beaders! Thanks to all for the comments!
