I was looking in Waterstones for something to read and picked up this book as I liked the cover. It's called "The Button Box: The Story of Women in the 20th Century Told Through the Clothes They Wore" and I'm enjoying it. Anyone else read it? :)

Looks really interesting. I've just downloaded a sample of it on kindle, so might go on to buy it as a real book, cos I think my mum would like it too.

What a lovely chest of drawers Iminei.

I was in town this morning and there was a picture in the window of an art shop made entirely of buttons. It was very effective.

Gorgeous button drawers Iminei. My button storage is rather boring, I keep them in empty tea tins (Twining Earl Grey) that are labeled on the lid with permanent marker (spare buttins, shirt buttons, snap buttons, metal shank buttons, etc.). The tins fit neatly in a narrow drawer unit next to the door to the sewing room.
