Warning - this post contains buttons
Lots of them
I spent a lovely part of my afternoon washing my button collection
Not just something I decided to do on a whim, it is because all these are recycled buttons and they do have a tendancy to gather dust and dirt from all those button boxes they have been kept in for years.
After my first soapy bowlful of buttons I discovered that using the colander was the best way to do it, then you can rinse the soap suds off and not lose any stray ones in the bottom of the bowl which take an absolute age to fish out from under the bubbles!
There is every chance that I am alone in this, but don't they just look lovely shining in the colander?
Please someone tell me they like buttons too!
My kitchen is covered in little blue cloths with buttons a-drying tonight all ready to be put into their jars and back to decorate my workshop
