Every home needs a good supply of buttons! I received mine from an elderly lady that was a close friend of my mother. I have picked up buttons here and they from time to time, and I'm so thankful to have them. I sometimes feel like a depression era woman!! This week both older boys brought me a pair of pants that needed a button. I pulled out my button stash and soon found a close match.

After sewing the button on, I put a few drops of nail polish on both sides of the stitches to help the button stay on.

All finished!
