I seen a photo of a laundry sign a few months ago and cannot find it to save my life. It was pink with raised letters and roses. So if any of you know what I am talking about, please let me know. It has driven me crazy!
So, I had to improvise and just come up with my very own.
There is a little story that goes with all of the buttons I used.....
Mammaw used to save buttons, she kept them in a large jar in a back room. I asked her one day, years ago, if she'd give them to me. Let me say that the look she gave me was like "do I have to really answer that?" I knew she didn't want to so I didn't push the issue. A few months later, she told me that she wanted me to have them. What an honor! She knew that I loved buttons and I would cherish them.
So I made a jar light with them back when I loved primitives.
I've used a lot of the buttons throughout the years. All of them have a story...some I remember when I was a girl. So you know now that these buttons are so very precious to me.
Now back to the sign....I counted how many I hot glued on the sign and it was 171!!! My hand was tired and my fingers were burnt. But now, that sign means so much more to me. I know Mammaw would get a big smile seeing how I used her "buttons".
And when I do that dreaded chore, I'll have a bit of her with me, making me smile.
