Button, Button

Did you ever stop to think what a funny word Button is? The more I type it, the more I think I am misspelling it. But my trusty spell checker is OK with it, so I guess I should be too. Still, Button is a funny word.

Anyway, remember that trip to New York City that my daughter and I took back in May? Seems like forever ago, what with everything else that has happened since then. But my husband is back to work full time and feeling good, the kids are all into the swing of summer with swim lessons every day and preparing for our family vacation, I'll be wrapping up my Upcycling Jeans class at the library tonight and I have been working on some projects that have been calling to me for some time, one of which is using up my I Spy blocks.

So anyway, back to the NYC trip and our visit to M&J Trimming. I came across my bag of goodies the other day and realized that I never showed what I purchased from that fabulous store. So here are a few pictures of my little purchase...and I do mean little!

M&J Trimming ButtonsAren't these buttons amazing? I just couldn't resist picking out a few fun colors. They are huge - 1 3/4 inches across! The flower buttons are thick and chunky and so cute. They almost feel like wood, but they are plastic. And that animal cracker patch brought back memories of carrying around those little boxes with the string handle when I was a kid. I still don't know what I will do with it, but I just love it!

M&J Trimming ButtonsThat's a quarter sitting on the white button, just so you can have an idea how big these buttons are. I think they will end up on a tote bag or maybe in the middle of a really huge pin cushion! The possibilities are endless!

So out of all the thousands and thousands of incredible items M&J Trimming carries in their NYC store, all I could think to bring home with me were 11 buttons and one patch. It was just too overwhelming! Really! If you ever have a chance to stop in and see for yourself, I know you will understand!

Happy Stitching!
