The first week after you loved one leaves is always the worst. Next week will be better.

Lovely buttons collection you have!

Such a sweet idea, Jacqueline! What is it with buttons? I seem to have a thing for them too. Their loveliest colors and designs and being teeny weeny... You found the cutest way to store your sweet petits!
Have a happy day, my friend. xxooxx


Always fun to spend time with a sister! Your new buttons are adorable, with such cheerful designs and unique colors. Clever idea for storing them! Don't forget them if you make iced lollipops!


What a great idea!!! I do love buttons too...they are such happy little things that would cheer anyones heart. Hugs for a great day...xoxoxo...happy sister time.

What a clever idea, J! I love buttons too, but they are difficult to keep organized.

I actually have the same popsicle/ice lolly moulds from Ikea, but I use them to freeze broth for my doggy :). Maybe I'll need to buy a couple more for myself?



SWEET treats!...mmm... I can't wait for warmer days and break out our iced lolly maker! BEAUTIFUL buttons... I just love buttons. I keep mine in old jam jars in my studio--all lined up, pretty like candy. I can't believe it's Wednesday already either. 6 days until our holiday way to see family--hooray! But so much to do... LOL! Happy Day, Jacqueline :o) ((HUGS))

This is a great and clever idea. I really like your button collection. So many bright and wonderful colors. Hang in there. The first week is the hardest after saying good bye to a loved one. You are so right to focus on some creative projects. Show us what you are making. I love your creations. They are so beautiful. Big hugs to you.


What a sweet storage idea! Love your cute little buttons too :) And can't wait for more of your craftastic news!

Big big hugs! :) xo


I love to read and see what you are up to. I hope your hubby is home soon, what a sweetheart he was to help ease the pain of missing him with surprises and a little pretty gift.

Your button collection is wonderful, I adore the shots of them.

Happy day to you!

What a creative idea! I do something similar with my earrings as well. Haha.

Hope you're feeling more cheery now :)


It wonderful to be here and seeing all the beautiful buttons that you had stocked up so far. Somehow it feels happy seeing all the buttons. Glad that you had a good weekend with your sister. Have a sweet lovely week ahead and lots of love to you.

You are my kind of girl! Better to buy less but buy what you love!

I have serious button envy now! Especially the peachy carved ones - but if I can't have them myself there is nobody who I would rather had them more than you LOL :D


Oh you're a button collector - how cool! So lovely that you have a super sis - I bet it was very healing getting together like that. Have a lovely weekend won't you sweetie!
