Drawn to it by Charmander and his pleas for mending, I looked inside and found my missing vintage buttons!
Here are the beautiful glass buttons my mum and I sorted from one of her button boxes this Christmas:
Here are some amazing Chinese ones we re-found at the same time:

Now, while I had temporarily mislaid the new buttons, I saw lovely button crafts on two blogs. I'm going to track them down and put some links to them here, and maybe it will all help me to decide what I'm going to do with my mother's glass buttons. All suggestions welcome...
