Why I buy lots of buttons

Other than to run my fingers through and just look at them filling the (many, many) jars in my craft room that is!

To make fabulous Buttontastic chicken doorstops :)

And pretty button brooches :)

I also use lots of black buttons as the eyes for my chickens. See not just pretty things to look at although these next photos may be classed as button porn :) Enjoy :)

My button jars!
Matt found these - 50p per tin
My best EVER charity shop haul
Donated by a lovely, lovely friend

Rummage, rummage!
